Violet Stops ENICK
August 1, 1941 – October 12, 2020
Thank you for joining us in celebration and remembrance of Violet "StopsAtPrettyPlaces" Enick. She turned in her Armor Of God for her Crown Of Jewels in Heaven on October 12th,2020. She was 79. She was born to Fannie OtherBlackBird & Clark Stops on August 1st,1941 in Lodge Grass, Montana. As a very young girl she was raised by Hartford & Janie and from them they taught her the prayer life and caregiving ways she very much so carried on. Than at the early age of 18 in 1960 she gave her heart to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Her wish growing up was to be a Lady Missionary and that she did. She traveled on foot around Lodge Grass and neighboring towns catching rides just to be in Church meetings anywhere and everywhere just to be in the presence of the Lord. Along her travels near and far to church meetings and gatherings the paths of Violet and Harold G. Enick crossed. February 25,1961 they were united in marriage. The story of their union was always such a great one she shared with her family and many others. Momma Violet & Daddy Harold's wedding day was more than joining together the two; it was the beginning of a ministry that God had already started in each of them. From this union they had 7 amazing wonderful children John(RutaLee), Francis, Nathan(Veronica), Lewis(Royann), "Faye"Violet Faith Enick, Eunice(Al"Champ")Takes The Horse and Mary(Raven)Red Star Price. She was blessed with 33 grandchildren and 63 great grandchildren. One child besides the 7 who earned her crown early as a baby, Gloria Rose Enick. Along the way they adopted lots and taken in many they loved and treated as their very own. Two of the longest adoptions that were always there for Violet and her Family were Bunny(Erich)Longie and Nadine 'Viola' BirdHat, each very well known in and to the Enick children as sister. Violet and Harold evangelized to many of the western states and on into parts of Canada. They lived and pastored in many of those areas as well.
She was affectionately known as Momma Violet or Momma Enick. A spiritual and godly mother for so many she was. Her family shared her with everyone, as she was a natural caregiver in any way she was needed. She was always there beside the ones who needed prayers for guidance or a word of encouragement. Always answered her phone and messages and sent texts out forwarding her words of wisdom. Momma Violet was a pillar and a rock many depended on. Many looked to her always whether it be her children, grandkids, brothers, sisters natural or spiritual. The churches near and far reached out to her for her preaching of the word and prayers that reached the throne of God. She talked often with her loved ones and those who listened to the miracles she's witnessed over her many years and she'd get so excited sharing them with tears or smiles and arms raised like it was happening right as she told the stories. She very much loved sharing the scriptures from the bible with all and could always be found studying the word of God any time of the day no matter where she was. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren brought her much joy and livelihood. She was so proud of them all and gave them all her affections whenever she saw any of them. She enjoyed being a busy body type of woman always helping cleaning and washing dishes no matter whose home she was in.
Violet worked at Crow Head Start for 20+ years after the family settled in Crow. She worked with many but all those years alongside her best friend Rachel.
Also survived by the two longest adopted daughters that were always there always alongside the family and for Violet were Bunny(Erich) Longie and Nadine 'Viola' BirdHat Bell. Her siblings who she loved dearly and will miss her are sisters Kathryn Old Crow, Pamela Little Light, Martha(Richard) Kings, Sharon Rides Horse(Jerry Kenyon), Sheila and Leita Rides Horse; Brothers Melvin Stops, Sammy(Cecilia), Gary Sr and Golden Eagle Rides Horse. She has a large number of adopted children, grands and as a sister in Christ, also a large extended family.
