Eunice Keiser Corn, born July 4, 1920, passed away at her home in Squirrel Valley on September 18 and went gently into the arms of the Lord. Eunice, a long-time resident of Squirrel Mountain Valley and retired L.A. city school teacher, was a Past Worthy Matron of the order of the Eastern Star and active in Eastern Star until the end. She was a member of the Golden Slipper, the DAR, and was also active in the Clan Diggers, the South Fork Women’s Club and the Elks. Eunice was a long time docent at the Kern Valley Historical Museum and also volunteered at the Audubon Preserve.
Eunice was predeceased by her son, Steve Corn, of Squirrel Valley, who passed away suddenly earlier this year.
Eunice leaves behind her daughter, Tina, and spouse Erik, who were her caregivers so Eunice could ‘age in place’ at her home in Squirrel Valley. She also leaves behind her daughter, Sandra Givens of Arizona; daughter-in-law, Sallie Corn of Squirrel Valley; granddaughters, Tera Mendoza (John Mendoza), Chelsea Hunt (Shawn Kelley); great-grandchildren Kayla, Andreya and Anthony Mendoza; grandson, Christopher Corn; great-grandchild Brooke, and John H. Corn of the South Bay. Eunice also leaves behind her beloved cat, “Tiki.”
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to The American Diabetic Association, the Salvation Army or The National Audubon Society; as these were some of her favorite charities.
Services will be November 3 at the Kern Valley Masonic Temple followed by an open house at 3801 Flicker Road SMV from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
