Eunice Mays Cash Stevens

Eunice Mays Cash Stevens, 97, passed peacefully on Friday, February 19th, 2021 at Fairmont Crossing in Amherst, VA. She was preceded in death by her husbands Gilbert Manford Cash and Sam Mead Stevens.

One of eleven children, Eunice was born May 29, 1923, in Amherst County to the late Mack Manaway Mays and Nettie Coffey Mays. She worked at Ben Franklin as a clerk, and later as a teller at Central Fidelity Bank in Amherst where she retired.

Eunice was a member of Clifford Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and served on multiple committees. She was a member of the Amherst Rescue Squad Ladies Auxiliary. She was also a member of the Ageless Wonders, a group of senior citizen performers based in Lynchburg, VA who traveled throughout the country.

Eunice was a wonderful cook who made the best corn pudding. She enjoyed gardening and canning vegetables. She walked daily with the Lord. Her deeply rooted faith was evident in her selflessness, love, and compassion for others. She always put her family first, and never forgot a birthday.

She is survived by her son Roy Manaway Cash and daughter Phyllis Cash Campbell (Kifferly), and Donnie Stevens (Mary Ann), Gail S. McGee, and Beth S. Gamble (Mike), siblings Marshal Mays, Mary Jane Campbell, Eva Gowen, Rachel Campbell, and her 10 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Eunice was one of the sweetest ladies I've ever had the pleasure of knowing! I had known her for many years and her magnificent smile was always the first thing I would notice when I'd see her from time to time! She was always such an encouragement to others by the life she lived, and her kind spirit! She definitely walked the walk that showed her love for her Savior! I'm sure she is now entertaining angels and loved ones in Heaven with her beautiful gift of singing!
My sincere condolences to all her family and those whose lives she touched in her 97 years! What a blessing she was!!! And will continue to be! She will never be forgotten!!
