She was there with all her children to attend the funeral of her first born grandchild, Stacy Frey Nield, who passed away at the age of 30 from ALS.

Enie was very broken-hearted by her passing and died the day of the funeral. She is now with Stacy guiding her through their next journey.

She was a fabulous and caring Mother and equally wonderful Grandma. Enie lived for her family and loved to dance, recently having the best time at Lindsay's wedding. She didn't know a stranger, loved to talk and tell stories. Her great attitude and laugh was contagious. She loved parties and was often the first to arrive and the last to leave. She enjoyed being a member of the Red Hat Society in Norwalk and Port Orange. Enie will be missed by many but forgotten by none.
