In 1932, she married Melvin Wiles, Sr. and they enjoyed 77 years together. In 1941, the Wiles family moved to Grimes to enter the oil business, which lasted 48 years. Eunice was a partner in the business as well as a homemaker. She enjoyed her family, church, many friends, and, of course, golf.

Eunice is survived by her husband, Melvin, daughters Beverly Jean Tarlton (Dick) and Karen Lea Roth (Ron), daughter-in-law Karen Kay Wiles, all of the Des Moines area, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great, great grandchild. Preceding her in death was son Melvin Wiles, Jr. and all of her siblings, three brothers and five sisters.
