Martha attended Stephen F. Austin State University and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics. While on a double date one evening, Martha happened to meet Claude Eubanks. Something caught her eye, and later the two decided to see where this interest took them. It was the start of something wonderful and on June 20, 1942, Martha and Claude were married. A beautiful life was born that day filled with family, friends, and great memories.

 

Nana, as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren called her, was an avid reader. She loved the adventures that she could go on in the pages she read. She also liked to try her hand at a game of 42. Lots of laughs were shared around the table when a game would strike up with family. A homemaker at heart, Martha also was a talented seamstress. She could sew and crochet some intricate and gorgeous creations. One of the most memorable things about her was that every year, she made cases of jelly. She was great at canning and her jelly was worth sharing. Martha was a faithful member of Logansport Baptist Church for almost 50 years.

 

Martha is survived by her sons, James Eubanks of Athens, Louisiana and Clifford Eubanks and wife, Vonda of Logansport, Louisiana; grandchildren, Vanessa Byrd and husband, Brian, Rafe Eubanks and wife, Carrie Ann, Stephen Eubanks and wife, Michelle, and Leigh Ann Winderweedle and husband, Phillip; eight great-grandchildren; and a host of extended family and friends.

 

She is preceded in death by her husband, Claude Sims Eubanks; parents, J.M. and Sarah Green; brothers, Bura Allen Green and Haskell Green; and sisters, Ruby Harris, LaMerle Young, Alma Green, Alibell Campbell, and Elizabeth Harris.

 

The family requests that memorial donations be made to the Gym Kitchen at Logansport First Baptist Church.
