We were terribly saddened to learn of Auntie Enid’s death. I have known Auntie Enid my whole life. She lived next door door to my Mum (Joan Bird) in London when she and my Mum were little girls. Auntie Enid’s Mum (Mrs Tresper) and my grandmother were friends. When Auntie Enid lived in Ottawa with Tam we saw a lot of each other while visiting my husband’s aunt. Auntie Enid was particularly kind to my husband’s grandmother who was in a retirement residence in Ottawa. She would visit her often and ensure she had all she needed. Although my husband’s grandmother spoke very little English (she came from Russia at the time of the revolution at the turn of the last century), Auntie Enid never let a language barrier deter her. She was a remarkable woman and although we hadn’t seen her for a number of years, we have such wonderful memories of her and Tam welcoming us to their home. She will be missed.
