Doris Jean Enright

We lost our wonderful mom, grandma, great-grandma, and dear friend Tuesday, February 12, 2013. She peacefully passed away in the home that she loved with her dog Mini at her side. Doris Jean Walker/Greenfield/Enright was 84. She was born March 24, 1928 in Standish, Mich. to Elsie Nelson Walker and Guy Elmer Walker.

On June 27, 1948, she married Gerald E. Greenfield in Boulder, Colo., and together they had four children: Terri, Cynthia, Peggy, and Ross. The marriage ended in divorce. Years later, Doris married Joe Ossie Enright, also of Boulder, who passed away January 8, 1980.

Doris worked as a nurse in Boulder, Colo., and was a unit secretary at Rogue Valley Medical Center in Medford, Ore. She retired in 1993 at the age of 65. A unique soul, Doris was full of life, funny, and feisty. Her family will always remember her by the color red, which symbolizes her stubbornness, her big-hearted love for family and friends, and the fire she always had within.

She greatly loved all animals, enjoyed gardening (miniature roses and bonsais were her favorites), and was an avid reader. She enjoyed making rawhide rattles and shawls for the many powwows she attended. Her love for life was contagious and has been passed on to her entire family. She will be greatly missed.

Doris is survived by her two sisters, Jaye Deines and Jo Seeley; daughters, Terri Greenfield, Cynthia Ragsdale, and Peggy Nelson Gribben; son, Ross Greenfield; as well as her grandchildren, Leef Smith, Lars Smith, Lyca Greenfield-Smith, Mitchell Ragsdale, Todd Ragsdale, Brittany Greenfield, Sierra Greenfield, Kristi Nelson Blackhurst, and Kori Nelson Acosta; and great-grandchildren, Alex Ragsdale, Jenelle Ragsdale, Alisa Ragsdale, Holly Ragsdale, Zenith Umojah, Jamani Umojah, Chloe Acosta, and Logan Acosta. She was preceded in death by her parents; her three brothers, Wayne, Del, and Skip; and her sister, Ann.

An opportunity to express condolences to the family and to sign the memorial guest register is available at A private memorial service will be held by her family and dear friends.
