Carrie Juanita Eubanks was born September 12, 1931 to Theodore and Mary Leathers in Tullahassee, Oklahoma. The family moved to Kansas City, Missouri where she attended public schools including R.T. Coles.
As a young lady, she accepted Christ and became a member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church.
She was united in marriage to Floyd Eubanks and they raised six lovely daughters.
She was a seamstress by trade and followed her mother into the garment industry. Working for multiple manufacturers she retired from Youthcraft as a top-stitcher. Not only were those skills used at work, she made many of her girls’ clothing, often matching outfits.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, twin newborns Edward and Edwin, two brothers Lucious and Theodore, three sisters Hattie Mae Sutton, Margaret Carter and Marquette Leathers, one granddaughter Amber Reliford and one great grandson Matthew Ray.
Carrie began her eternal sleep on October 11, 2020 at home. It was her wish to remain at home, and her girls were able to honor that wish.
She leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Margaret Moore (Billy) of Lee Summit, MO, Ozell Perkins, LaTonya Eubanks, Janice Eubanks Reliford, Paula Eubanks all of Kansas City, MO, Carla Hays of San Antonio, TX; brother, James Leathers also of Kansas City, MO.
