Eula Tigner

Tigner, Eula Age 90 of Minneapolis. Eula was born September 15, 1931. She lived on a farm 20 miles east of Britton, SD with her two older brothers Herluf and Vernon and her parents Tom and Bertha Schultz. She met the love of her life, Norman Tigner at Northern Normal Teachers College in Aberdeen, SD. In many ways, you cannot tell the story of Eula without Norm, because a greater love story was never told. They married on October 18, 1952. They moved to Lemmon, SD and then Watertown, SD for teaching positions and Norm's basketball coaching. Eula excelled as a kindergarten teacher. Norm & Eula had three biological children and one adopted son, Susan (Kurt), David (Patty), Douglas (Diane) and Stephen (Jill). After various moves in SD they landed in Paynesville, MN. Eula returned to college at the age of 50 to complete her bachelor's degree in education. Eventually eight grandchildren blessed their family within seven years - Spencer (Maddy), Samantha, Allison (Paul), Elle, Caitlyn, Isaac, Ryan and Austin. They were the joy of Grandma and Grandpa's lives. Eula was a loving grandma, mother, sister and daughter. She always befriended the people or animals that needed help. Her past and current kitties, Scooter, Rubio, and Charlie were a treasure in her life. Eula has always been a woman ahead of her time. Her independent spirit helped her see the world as it could be, not just as it was. She was a rule breaker, questioned authority, and always found new and different ways to do things. But most importantly, she believed in the radical idea of limitless love for her beloved family, friends, and all of the children of the Earth. A memorial service in honor of Eula's life will be at 11AM on Saturday, October 1st at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (900 Stillwater rd. Stillwater, MN ) with visitation one hour prior. In lieu of flowers memorials preferred to Animal Humane Society.
