Eunice Erceg

June 23, 1913 — March 15, 2014

Eunice M. Erceg, a life-long resident of Duluth, passed away peacefully of natural causes on March 15, 2014 at the age of 100. Eunice was a life-long resident and staunch booster of Duluth who was always happy to show people the sites. She was born June 23, 1913 to Harry and Lavina Love and grew up in her childhood home on Exeter Street. She graduated from Denfeld High School in 1931 and then attended business college . Eunice married Frank Erceg, the love of her life whom she had known since elementary school, in 1940 in a double wedding ceremony with her sister, Gertrude, and husband John. Together Eunice and Frank raised their sons, David and Alan, and built a life on Nanticoke Street around family, faith and friends. They enjoyed being active in their church, neighborhood, and many outdoor activities. Eunice was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and aunt who was always ready to have good time visiting the zoo, playing scrabble, fly fishing, swimming or riding the “merry-go-round”. She was known for her infectious laughter, particularly with her sister Gertrude and much to the amusement of her extended family. Eunice was a reader who loved books, and she was proud to be employed for many years at the Duluth Public libraries. She was a devout and active Catholic who was a tireless volunteer at St. Clement and St. Lawrence Catholic Churches in Duluth, and was a pillar of her parishes for decades. She also enjoyed a special relationship with St. John’s University. Eunice celebrated her hundredth birthday last summer with her loving, extended family. She was an inspiration to all of us for the zest by which she lived, her kindness and care for others and her youthful spirit. Eunice was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Frank Erceg ; her loving sons David (Linda) Erceg and Alan (Karen) Erceg; parents, Lavina and Harry Love; sister Gertrude (John) Sullivan, and brothers James (Agnes) and Earl (Leona) Love. Survived by grandchildren, Lance (Charisse), Brad, Jamie and Laura Erceg and great grandchildren, Dawkin, Fayja Rose, Talon and Ashley. Also survived by many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until the 12 noon Mass of Christian burial Saturday, March 22 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church, 2410 Morris Thomas Road. Rev Fr William Fider officiating. Burial in Calvary Cemetery. Arrangements by Williams Lobermeier Boettcher Funeral Home.
