Eulajean Hannah (Cogar) Gross of Cowen, West Virginia, and lately of Elkins, West Virginia went to be one of the God’s angels on August 23, 2018. Eulajean was known to her family and her close friends as “Jean” and to her grandchildren and great-children as “Grandma Jean.” Eulajean was born in Webster Springs, West Virginia on July 2, 1928, and was the only daughter born to Ballard Cogar and Amy (Rose) Cogar. Eulajean is survived by her daughter, Cheryl (Charles) Given of Elkins, West Virginia, and her son, Teddy (Carole Sue) Gross of Craigsville, West Virginia. She is also survived by her two grandsons, Eric Given of Kodak, Tennessee and Ian (Kristy) Given of Elkins, West Virginia, and great-grandchildren, Alexandra Given, Aubrey Given, and Autumn Given of Newport, Tennessee and Landon Given of Elkins, West Virginia. Eulajean is also survived by a brother, Robert Phil (Dorothy) Cogar, of Cleveland Ohio and sisters-in-law, Ula Lee Cogar of Columbus, Ohio, Gaila Cogar of Oberlin, Ohio, and Irma Shy of Barboursville, West Virginia. She is also survived by many special nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Eulajean was predeceased by brothers, Herman Cogar and wife, Ruth Cogar, Tommy Cogar and wife Jane M. Cogar, Harry Cogar, Connell Cogar, and by her grandson, Damien Gross.

Eulajean was a graduate of Cowen High School, Glenville State College and the College of Graduate Studies (now Marshall University). Eulajean began teaching in the Webster County School Systems, first at Glade Elementary in 1949 and then later at Glade Elementary where she retired in 1989. Her eyes lit up every time teaching was the topic of conversation, and she loved children. She enjoyed traveling and seeing stage plays and band concerts at Webster County High School and plays and musical presentations at Theatre West Virginia and Broadway Across America. She loved sewing, needlework and painting when she was able to see, and she loved planting flowers in her planters and sitting on her porch swing enjoying them.

Eulajean dedicated her life to serving others. She was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church since 1949 and served her church in many capacities over the years. Eulajean was a 4-H All-Star. Eulajean served the City of Cowen as Recorder and Councilperson for 46 years, and for which she was honored with a bench in her name at the Cowen City Building. She served on the Library Board for Cowen Public Library in Cowen, West Virginia and on the Webster County Senior Citizens Board of Directors for several years. She was a lifetime member of the Cowen Garden Club in Cowen, West Virginia. Eulajean was also an artisan of many talents and often said she could be as good of a carpenter as her brothers, but no one would teach her.
