Obituary: Eunice Hulth, 92, of Ludington

Eunice May Hulth, 92, of Ludington, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 21, 2023 at the Poppen Hospice House in Muskegon and now is in the presence of her Lord and Savior. Eunice was born on January 10, 1931 in Highland Park, Michigan, the daughter of Arthur and Maude (Johnson) Hulth, and graduated from Ludington High School with the class of 1948.  She furthered her education at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minn., and began working as an accountant for Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, a career that would last 42 years. Eunice served in her church in many different roles, including children’s ministry and church treasurer. She also had a passion for urban ministry. For 32 years, she served on the board of City First Foundation, whose mission is to resource urban neighborhoods, ministries, and families educationally, economically, socially, and spiritually. In her retirement, she chose to move back to Ludington and was a resident of Village Manor.
