Alma Broyles Euler born May 31, 1921 in Kleberg, TX and resided in Dallas, TX for much of her life. Alma died on March 8, 2018 in Forney, TX at the age of 96. Preceded in death by husband Edwin Euler, daughter Nancy Euler Wood Martinez, parents William Lawrence and Pearl Hilderbrand Broyles, brothers Maurice, Sidney, Cecil and Alton Broyles and sisters Frances Broyles Bass and Jeanne Broyles Self. Survived by son and daughter-in-law Richard and Deb Euler; daughter and son-in-law Sherri and Dan Camp; four grandsons Jason, Eric, Kris and Travis; two granddaughters Rikki Jo and Alyssa; nine great grandchildren; sister Helen Broyles Ragsdale of Houston and brother Bill Broyles of Mesquite; numerous nieces, nephews and life-long friends. Special thanks to the staff and residents at Three Forks Assisted Living in Forney, staff of Ridgecrest Rehabilitation Center in Forney and Pathway Hospice.

Alma was one of nine Broyles children born to Pearl and William Lawrence Broyles; the oldest of four daughters. She graduated from Forest Avenue High School in 1940 and later worked for Southland Life Insurance. Alma married Edwin “Ed” Euler on May 20, 1950. They later had one son, Richard, and two daughters, Nancy and Sherri. Later came six grandchildren – Jason, Eric, Kris, Travis, Rikki and Alyssa; and even later came nine great-grandchildren.

Alma was loved by many and commonly known as the matriarch of the Broyles Family. She was also a beloved member of the Euler Family and adored by numerous friends near and far. The most important thing to Alma was family and that included her life-long friends that were just as important as blood relatives.

What some, but not all, people know is that Alma was at one time President of the PTA at the elementary school; and actually appeared on television representing the PTA. Many viewed her as the dependable daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, friend and grandmother. But what may surprise you is that she also had an adventurous side. As an 80th birthday present to herself, she went parasailing. That’s right; when she was 80.

Alma enjoyed the simple things in life. A picnic, a rainbow, a dogwood tree, a Diet Coke. Occasionally, she got to enjoy some pretty great travels – such as Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Aruba, Nova Scotia, Norway, and even Paris. However, none of these compared to her home where she could be close to family and friends – Big D in the great State of Texas.

Debbie and I are so sorry we couldn’t make it to Dallas. A fond memory I have is your mother and I playing double solitaire for hours. Mama would already be in bed but your mom was a night owl. She would never cut me any slack and I didn’t cut her any either. She and mama were always so competitive. Debbie and I are absolutely convinced they walked through the pearly gates together. I know she will be missed by all.

Alma was a wonderful friend & neighbor. She was always available to help when needed. She made a midnight run to Baylor ER when Maurice had blood poisoning in his leg & she would help me with our new born baby, Piper. She picked Maranna up at school when I was sick. One Story I must tell: Maurice was an avid deer hunter always skinning his kill in our backyard. That "event" always drew a crowd of neighborhood kids. Nancy & Sherry were two of those kids, much to Alma's dismay. One day he gave each of them a hoof to take home. It wasn't long before they came back with the hoofs. Alma had told them to tell Maurice to keep those nasty deer parts on his side of the street. I will always remember Alma & wish I could have seen her one more time. Much love & prayers to Richard & Sherry...You had a wonderful Mom., Pressley, Maranna & Piper
