OBITUARY

Nelda Vick Eubank

February 8, 1932October 6, 2021

Nelda Vick Eubank passed away peacefully on October 6, 2021 in her assisted living apartment at The Pointe in Cedar Park. She was born February 8, 1932 in Placid, Texas to Vergie and George Vick. She graduated from Rochelle High School in 1948 and also Brownwood Business College. She was married to Jesse D. Eubank from July 20, 1951 until his death in 1997. During Jess’s time in the military, Nelda embraced the lifestyle and enjoyed living in Japan while he was stationed there in the mid-1950s. Nelda and Jess raised their three children in Houston, Japan, Waco and Austin, where she had lived since 1967. They traveled throughout North America and Hawaii for vacations, and she also traveled to Europe with friends. She was a stay-at-home mom, except for her once-per-week “job” at Weight Watchers, where she made many lifelong friends.

Nelda was an active member of Anderson Mill Baptist Church and enjoyed participating in her Sunday School class, all of who were a continual support and encouragement to her. She was a pianist from a young age and played songs from the hymnal throughout her life. She was active in the YMCA water aerobics class for many years and was always a very sociable person. Nelda belonged to several card, dominoes and other game groups, yet also enjoyed solving word puzzles and watching Jeopardy at home. She often could be found looking out into her yard, watching the birds and squirrels scurrying about and always made sure they were well-fed.

Nelda was predeceased by her parents, her husband Jess, her oldest son Jay, and her brother, Dalton Vick and wife Violet. She is survived by her daughter Linda Bebee and husband Bill of Austin, son Darryl Eubank and wife Janet of Malaga, Spain. She was known and loved as Mamaw and GMamaw to two grandsons and six great grandchildren Kyle Bebee and wife Meredith of Dallas, Stella Cate (12) Sutton (10), Miller (6), and Hank (3), and Clay Bebee and wife Abigail of Ft. Worth, Bleecker (6) and Marion (4). She cherished her time with family.

Nelda loved her Lord, her family and her friends to the youngest of generations. She exemplified Southern hospitality by making everyone feel welcome in her home and always offering something delicious. In her condolences, many have said she was “just the sweetest person,” “like a second Mom to me,” “loving and king, gracious, caring and gentle”. That’s the Mom and friend we knew.

The family would like to thank the staff at The Pointe at Cedar Park and Encompass Healthcare for their incredible care. They were like family to her and called The Pointe home. You made such a difference in her life.

A visitation with the family will be held at Cook Walden Funeral Home, 6100 N. Lamar Blvd, on Sunday, October 17th from 5-7 p.m. The funeral will be held on Monday, October 18th at 10:00 a.m. at Anderson Mill Baptist Church, 10633 Lake Creek Pkwy. Nelda will be laid to rest at Live Oak Cemetery in Brady, Texas at 4 p.m.

Mrs Nelda was a beautiful soul. She welcomed me and my family when we just moved from Spain to Austin, and she made her house a safe haven for us. She cuddled my babies, gave me a friend, a grandma, an a visit to look forward to every week. The Pandemic kept us apart physically, but never took our love for her and hers for us ... She will be greatly missed, but we are happy she is now with God, where she belongs.
We love you Nelda!
Patrick, Natalia, Noah, Alec & Mabel O'Brien.

We were blessed to have Nelda as a neighbor for many years. We met when she & Jesse were moving in across the street. She often remembered our cat, Tegan, climbing into the moving van & warning the movers to watch out for her. When Ed’s father died & we couldn’t fly out with him, she had us over for dinner. Alejandro & Graciela liked the fact she also served dessert. When Alejandro was first at Canyon Vista & I had something unexpected to do, she would wait for the school bus & invite him in for cookies. He liked that. After she moved, we stayed in touch, having lunch or just talking for hours about flowers, birds, cats, our childhoods & whatever else crossed our minds. During the COVID shutdown, we talked every weekend. After we all got vaccinated, we managed a few visits. We will miss her terribly. How blessed you were to have such a sweet & loving woman as your mother, grandmother, & great-grandmother for so many years.
Our deepest sympathies on your loss.
Enedelia Obregón and Ed Sills

Jess and Nelda were good friends with my parents, Larry and Myrt Rutledge. In the 60s, our family lived north of the Austin airport in Windsor Park, on Westmoor Drive. Nelda and my mother, were very good friends and I remember both Jess and Nelda in our home many times over the years. I graduated from Reagan High School in Austin in 1968, and I believe the Eubank children were a bit younger than I was
I remember a lovely, gracious lady, with an incredible smile, who loved her family and life. She remained a beautiful woman throughout her life. I miss that generation of people. We need more people in this country that had their work ethic, morality and love of life, family and God.
A life well lived. I appreciate my friend Larry Miller mentioning he spotted the obituary in the Austin paper. My best wishes to the Eubank family as they cope with this difficult loss.

Of the many memories I have of Aunt Nelda, one that stands out is my visit with her, just the two of us, in her Austin home. We spent the day looking at family pictures on her walls, tending to her bird feeders in her patio, and having a nice BBQ lunch. She shared family stories and histories, as only the last person of her generation could do. I will miss her so much. Larry Eubank

Sweet, sweet lady and best friend to mom. Oh how they enjoyed each other’s company. She will be missed!

I met Nelda in 2001 when our friend Rose Garza invited me to play cards with their Triipoley Card Playing group. We were friends from that time until now. Nelda was one of those women that made you feel so comfortable to be around. What a blessing she was to all who knew her!. I had hoped to visit her, but the pandemic came along. We may not have had much contact except Christmas cards these past two years, but she will always be a very special person in my memories. Peace to all her family.

As I read Nelda’s obituary, I had the beautiful memory of Nelda playing How Great Thou Art in your home on Delwood. She will be missed. There hasn’t been a February 8 in 50 years that I haven’t thought of her. She was a beautiful person.

Some of my earliest memories include your mom. Such a sweet and lovely woman. I can still hear her laugh after all these years. I remember our Thanksgiving trip out to Placid to Mrs. Vick’s in ‘66. What an adventure for a city kid! That occasion and so many more with your family were an important part of my childhood. Blessings to all of you.
