Eula Corinne (Gatten) Kahrig, 86, of Pataskala, passed away on March 31, 2019. She was born in Lewisville, Ohio to the late Thurman and Audrey (Highman) Gatten. She is preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Lester Jacob Kahrig; siblings: William Muth, Kermit Gatten, Kenneth Gatten, Delmas Gatten, Amy (Gatten) Highman, Sue (Gatten) Kuhn; Child, Dannie Kahrig She is survived by children, Rhonda (Charles) Ortt, Scott (Jeanne) Kahrig, June (Joseph) Sipl; grandchildren, Andy Kahrig, Justin (and Chrissy) Kahrig, Kalen Sipl, Kameron Sipl; great-grandchildren, Jacob Kahrig, Jarrett Kahrig. Eula has been known as a most prolific artist. Since she began to create paintings in her teenage years, she has generated thousands of paintings that have now found their way around the world. Her style of art was mostly of farm or country scenes, which included landscapes, animals and flowers; almost anything in nature. Her canvas was often not just a canvas, but she also painted on handsaw blades, cross-cut saws, huge sawmill blades, milk cans, shovels, and anything else Lester could sand and paint black for her. There was much more to her than an artist, she was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She created a warm and nurturing home for her family and friends, where the ideal of “the more, the merrier” was held as the way to live. Family gatherings often included a mountain of good food, family and friends, and an atmosphere of joy and laughter. Eula possessed a generous amount and sometimes silly sense of humor. She loved to laugh, and to make others laugh. She also loved to travel, and over the years she and Lester had traveled across most of the United States, and in spite of her fear of flying, she made it as far away as Hawaii. Family will receive friends Tuesday, April 2, 2019 5pm-8pm, at Kauber-Fraley Funeral Home, 289 S. Main St, Pataskala, Ohio 43062. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday April 3, 2019 at 10:30am at the funeral home. In leu of flowers, donations can be directed to these charities: Dementia Society, Bella Care Hospice Celebrate Life fund, or Pataskala United Methodist Church.

I meet Eula when Lester and I drove school bus. Eula and I loved painting and we had a lot of conversation about painting on saw blades. My husband worked for a saw company and he would get the reject saw blades when they threw them out for scrap and bring them home and I would share them with Eula. I am very privileged to have a few of her saw blades hanging in my home. It was a pleasure to know her and she will be missed.

Lester & Eula were such a giant spoke in the wheel of the Pataskala Methodist Church! Their dedication was unsurepassed. Her talents in the annual bazaar and Lester right behind her with his big beautiful smile! He drove the bus for the youth group to go on a work assignment in Kentucky. Eula went as a chaperone. All the kids loved them! So many memories of the Kahrig’s!

Eula and Lester were 2 sides of a perfect coin. I will miss their wisdom and gusto for life, but have learned from them the value of family and kindness to all. Their spirit lives within Rhonda, June and Scott. Bless them all!

They were always such a joy. Full of happiness and a quiet wisdom, I'm sure they're happy to be reunited together in Christ!

I met Eula as June’s mom and was immediately impressed by her warmth and sweetness of spirit. As I got to know her better, I came to love her sense of humor and admire her artistic talent. I was gifted with one of her beautiful bird paintings, and it has an honored place in my home. She made the world a better place, and now her work is done. Rest In Peace, sweet lady.
