Eunice R. Kuhns

December 7, 1927 – April 23, 2023

Preceded in death by husband, Peter W. Kuhns.  Survived by sons: Donald J. Kuhns (Kara), Peter T. Kuhns (Laura), and Thomas M. Kuhns; three grandchildren: Alec, Zachary, and Isaiah; brother, Eugene Barta (Jan).

Loving mother and devoted spouse, professional artist and schoolteacher, Eunice lived a long and joyful life of faith and community service. As active members of Mary Our Queen and St. Cecilia parishes, she and husband Pete sponsored a family of Vietnamese refugees who had resettled to the Omaha area. Prior to that, with two young boys to raise, she stepped in to care for her brother’s four children after a tragic car accident left them without a mother. Selfless and humble, Eunice will live on in our memories as mother, grandmother, family member and friend.

    Eunice was my 4th Grade teacher at St. Bernard’s School in Omaha from September 1956 to June 1957. I have always remembered her as a kind and caring teacher. Throughout Grade School, I always considered her my favorite teacher, Rest in Peace, Eunice. You were a very special person in my life.
