Enid Norah Monteith 1933-2009

Enid Norah Monteith (née Lucas) died suddenly December 13, 2009.

She is lovingly remembered by her husband of 56 years Mel Monteith, her brother Ken Lucas (Anne-Marie) of Ottawa, her sister-in-law Doreen (Roy Baillargeon) of Kamloops, her children Mike (Linda), Brandy (Brenton Wilkie), Terry (John Pisarczyk), Ken, Syd (Tracy Baird), 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren

Enid grew up in Kamloops, graduated from Kamloops Senior Secondary School in 1951, and worked as a legal, administrative and medical secretary while raising a family throughout the B.C. interior.

Enid was a hard-working, intelligent, creative and caring person. Her baking talents and great sense of humour brought pleasure to countless others. She was a ravenous reader and took a keen interest in what was happening in the world around her.

Together with her husband Mel, Enid raised a loving family and inspired them all to do their best. What made her happiest was having her whole family together, and it is a tribute to them both that being together is always a happy experience for the whole family.

Enid will be remembered in a private family gathering. There will be no service by request.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital (Acute Care), R.R. 1, Clearwater, B.C. V0E 1N0.

Enid, Mum, Granny…we miss you.

Most of my fondest memories while growing up in Birch Island, included "Mum M" and your family.
Thank you Enid for the memories. You will be missed. PS
Good to know you had chocolate ;-)

Love Char

I'm so sorry to hear this news Ken. It just came from left field (Mind you news like this often does). I just can't express in words how sorry I am to hear this. David
