Sept. 28, 1915 — July 4, 2014
Betty Enright, born Sept. 28, 1915, died July 4, 2014, as she gently left her family a few months short of her 99th birthday.
She is already greatly missed by her children, Don (Darla) Enright, Judy (Jack) Rudolph, and Dave (Mary) Enright; and her beloved grandchildren, Lori (Jim) Fleury, Jody Reed, Jeff (Shelly) Rudolph, Megan (Nick) Jacoby, Mike (Rachel) Enright, Tim (Becky) Enright, Kevin (Kelly) Enright and Erin (Vince) Lupo. Betty has been blessed with 10 great-grandchildren. They will miss “Cookie” Grandma.
Betty is also survived by her brother, Bob Bruhn.
She was preceded in death by her sisters Kate Whettam Shortell, Virginia Riley, Ruth Hunter and Janet Larson.
Betty’s top priority was caring and praying for her family. Betty was widowed in October 1981, when her husband, Sterling “Luke” Enright, died of cancer after 47 years of marriage.
She served the Eagle community as a telephone operator for several years and the Eagle VMC as financial secretary for 25 years. Many of her friends marveled at the quality of the beautiful hand-stitched quilts, which all of her children and grandchildren received as gifts.
The visitation will take place at the Eagle United Methodist Church from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. today, July 8, at which time the celebration of Betty’s life will take place.
The family wants to express their appreciation to the staff at Birch Rock Corners in Mukwonago for their extraordinary loving care for the last several months. They could not be more grateful to her physician, Dr. Martin Kern, for his many years of support. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Eagle United Methodist Church.
