I was so sad to hear of Ena Mae's passing. I remember her from her Days in Emerson. Such a sweet woman. She will be greatly missed
I remember Ena Mae when I was a young girl and lived near Emerson. My Mother - Harriett Turner - was in a card club with Ena Mae for many years. She was a sweet lady. Condolences to all of the family.
I just saw on KMA"S website this evening of Ena Mae's passing. I knew Ena Mae was not doing well as Darrell wrote my Christmas card this year and he said Franette was spending a lot of time with her mom. So very sorry to read this. Ena Mae was one of the sweetest women I have known. My thoughts and prayers to Franette and Sue Ann and their families..
I lived across the street from you guys, I was always welcome at the big dining room table
like I lived there and we ate fish. Sue ann and Ena Mae had a surprise party for me when
I was 12, everyone hid behind the shower curtain in the basement, what wonderful memories of my childhood. Laurie Davis Johnson
Franette & Sue Ann- your mother was such a nice person. I have many fond memories growing up and spending time at your home. Those were fun times!
Ena Mae was a special lady. The Emerson Legion Auxiliary members send our condolences to her family and friends.
Franette and Sueanne, Your mother was one of the sweetest women I ever knew. Her door was always open to everyone except when we studied together and your grades went down. She really got her birthday wish this year and I hope you both find comfort in that. Happy Birthday Enamae!
Sue Ann--Years ago when our family lived in the Emerson area and I attended the Emerson School, I remember your sweet mom from the fun times when I was at your home. Of course over the years we've lost touch, but I was like, wow, when I saw that your mom lived to be 101! May you and your family be blessed with the comfort that the Lord so graciously provides.
