Eula Rae Buller passed away on Monday, October 31, 2022, surrounded by her six children.
Eula Rae “Aunt Sis” was born in Westlake, Louisiana, to Pearl and Paul Johnson as the youngest of seven children. She worked as George Theriot’s secretary for his grocery store chain where she met one of the managers. Shortly thereafter, she married her husband of 60 years, Bennie Buller. She took on the responsibility of raising six children. For Eula, a relationship with Christ was essential. She taught her children how to pray and who God is. She and Bennie lived in many cities in Louisiana, but settled in Hecker, Louisiana and attended Mass at Saint Charles Borromeo, Fenton as faithful parishioners. After Bennie’s death, Eula moved to Villa Maria Retirement Center where she made new and more friends, but always wanted to remain faithful to her Church Parish.
Those left to cherish her memories are her six children: Roland (and Cathy) Buller of Westlake, Colin (and Amanda) Buller of Bell City, Warren (and Beth) Buller of Lake Charles, Elizabeth Ann (and Darrell) Faulk of Welsh, John (and Jennifer) Buller of Iowa, and The Reverend Ruben Buller of Lake Charles.
