Euvah was born December 31st, 1929, to Herman Hershel Buckley and Hilda Marie Sandine Buckley in rural Cozad, Nebraska. She attended elementary school at Pine Ridge School District 80 and graduated from Cozad High School in 1947. She was honored to be named runner up in the Miss Cozad contest.

They spent their early marriage in San Juan, Puerta Rico and Tampa, Florida, where Cot was stationed in the Air Force. After his discharge they spent the rest of their lives together in Cozad where they raised their son and daughter. Euvah cherished being a wife, mom, and pet owner. She enjoyed working at Service Drug for many years. She loved music, flower gardening, baking, and cooking for a “threshing crew” as she referred to a large hungry group.
