On Tuesday, January 8, 2024, God brought his child Eunice Janell Fleming home to rest. Eunice was born August 10, 1965, to Bishop Fleming and the late Janary Fleming of Enterprise, Alabama. Many who knew and loved her affectionally referred to her as Peggy. She was the youngest of eight children.
As a child Eunice was an excellent student and a competitive athlete. After graduating from Enterprise High School, she attended Auburn University at Montgomery. While attending AUM Eunice participated in the Reserve Officer Training Program. Throughout her life Eunice had a passion for caring for others, and she pursued this passion professionally by studying nursing at AUM.
After graduating from AUM, Eunice became an officer in the United States Army in September 1987. While in the Army, Eunice served as a psychiatric and mental health nurse. In this position Eunice worked hard to help members of the military heal both physically and mentally. Eunice was honorably discharged from the Army in 1994 after achieving the rank of Captain. When describing Eunice’s service in the Army one superior officer wrote “this officer’s personal high standards guide her performance and are examples for her peers to emulate. A woman of her word who can be counted on to do the right thing.”
After leaving the Army, Eunice continued her work as a psychiatric and mental health nurse at the Department of Veteran Affairs Hospital in Montgomery, Alabama. Eunice thrived in this role and spent over two decades working on behalf of veterans.
In September 1990, Eunice and the late Stephen Adolphus McKitt welcomed twin boys into the world: Stephen Phillip McKitt and Vincent Thomas McKitt. The Lord may have never created a more dedicated and loving mother than Eunice. She poured knowledge, love, and understanding into her boys. Eunice also cultivated a love of learning, honesty, and respect amongst her sons. Most of all, Eunice made sure that her sons always knew that no matter what happened she would love them unconditionally.
She is survived by her dedicated sons Stephen and Vincent (Taishayla); her beloved granddaughter Aubrey; her loving father Bishop Fleming Jr.; as well as her caring brothers and sisters Larry (Gloria), Linda (Harold), Edna (Thomas), Jerome (Margaret), Milton (Mia), Reginold (Cynthia), and Steve Bishop III. Eunice is also survived by several treasured nieces and nephews and her beloved friend Fred McCarthy. She is preceded in death by her mother Janary Fleming.
Eunice was many things. She was a beloved daughter, a cherished sister, a caring aunt, a treasured cousin, a dear friend, and an irreplaceable mother. She was also a woman of faith, a soldier, and a dedicated civil servant. She will be missed and remembered by those who knew her.
