Eulalia Cretsinger was born in Pickewick, Texas, on February 20, 1939, to Henry and Elsie Cretsinger. She attended Cedar Creek school and then Breckenridge High School. She met Doyle Waggoner in 1955, and they were soon married. The couple relocated from Breckenridge to Abilene, where they lived for several years before eventually returning to Breckenridge. Eulalia and Doyle owned Waggoner Moving and Storage. The couple was well-known in the community, especially for their ongoing support of multiple youth activities. Eulalia was one of many Breckenridge residents who got to see Elvis perform at the high school auditorium… TWICE!
