Eula Wharton Trent


Mrs. Eula Wharton Trent transitioned peacefully at her home on Oct. 28, 2022. She was the first born to the late James and Marie Wharton.
Eula was a graduate of Mary N. Smith High School. After graduation she continued her studies. Eula graduated from college with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education. She became known as one of the most dedicated extraordinary teachers in Accomack County. Eula retired from years of teaching at South Accomack Elementary school in the early 80s, however she continued to have great relationships with several of her coworkers after her retirement.
Eula joined Gaskins Chapel African Methodist Church, Savageville, at an early age and was a dedicated faithful member until her health began to fail her. Eula was the organist for many years and always enjoyed the rehearsals once a week. Eula will always be remembered for her excellent cooking and baking, playing the piano, traveling around the world, playing bingo, reading novels, and of course her love of going to Philadelphia to shop, as well as spending quality time with family.
Eula leaves to cherish her memory, her two sons, Wayman Trent (Dorine) and Kenric Trent, both of Accomac; granddaughter, Shania Trent, of Duluth, Ga.; sister, Marion Ames, of Mt. Holly, N.J.; sisters-in-law, Calenia Wharton, of Smyrna, Del., Brenda Taylor, of Lawrenceville, Ga., Faithe Obasogie, of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Vera Hexstall, of Vineland, N.J.; brother-in-law, Edward Trent, of Philadelphia; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Eula is predeceased by her husband, Leslie Trent; sisters, Elsie Ingram and Dorothy Watson; and brothers, Lionel Wharton and William Wharton.
As her family honors Eula’s request, her service will be private.
The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers, love, and acts of kindness during this difficult time.
