We were saddened to hear the news at Sunday Mass of Enis's passing. She was a quiet, kind, sweet yet strong person whom we first met 40 years ago when our family moved into the house next door to her and Lou and their children. After 18 years or so our parents moved out, but soon thereafter one of us bought a house across the street and was blessed to be neighbors with Enis and Lou for another 18 years.
Enis was in our daily prayers the last few months and we offer our deepest sympathy to Anna, Louis and their families. May she rest in peace with God and her dear husband Lou.

Lou / Anna,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. C. Not only was she a great wife and mother, she had been a lifelong friend of my mother and my daughter’s favorite teacher. I am grateful that Coby had the honor of being in her last Kindergarten class at I.H.M.
Mrs. C’s obituary says she touched the heart of thousands of children. I have attached a photo of her with some of those children from her last Kindergarten. She will be in our thoughts and prayers as will your families.
