Enid devoted her life to the help of others. Her tireless efforts in support of the H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre will never be forgotten. She sold cookbooks all across North America. Robert joked that she would have to take cookbooks to heaven so he put one in her casket. She made angels from macaroni that she called her Angel of Hope. She gave them to cancer patients for support.
She played the organ in St. John’s Church, Bishop’s Cove and St. Andrews in Bryant’s Cove for most of her life. She travelled the world with Jackie and her family and had so many memories that we are left to remember. She received the Governor Generals Award and the Queen’s Jubilee medal for the work she did for others.
Married for 72 years to Jackie, their life was as complete as one’s life can possibly be. I can go on but we all know what her life was. We will remember her as she was in our individual lives.
Her journey here is over. Her Journey with the Great Architect has just begun.
Rest eternal by with you Mother. Travel well, be free. Till we are all called Home again.
