Biography: 

Uncle Billy Varner’s youngest daughter, Jody’s sister and Flem Snopes wife. Eula is described as a fertile and earthy female, a “big, soft-looking [gal] that could giggle richer than plowed new-ground” attracting competitive suitors who swarm around her “like bees around a honey pot” (166). When she becomes pregnant, her father presumably arranges for her to marry Flem Snopes and they move to Texas for about a year. When she returns with a “three-months-old” who “can already pull up on a chair” (167) it is no great secret to the townspeople what has transpired. She plays a major role in both The Hamlet and The Town.
