Enid was born November 22, 1930 in Manteca, Calif to Alfa Metsker Dimmitt. During her depression-era school years she lived in logging camps and Eagle Point, Ore., ranches with her mother, having moved to the Rogue Valley ear in 1940.

She married Alvin in November 1948 in Reno, Nev., after having met him at the Medford Roller Rink. During those years she worked at the Rialto Theatre on West Main Street. Her sons, Mike and Gary were born in 1949 and 1951. During her working years in the '50's and '60's she was one of the most productive pear packers at Reter Fruit Company and Nye & Naumes Packing Company. In 1970 she became the convention center manager at the then newly completed Holiday Inn. In the '70's and '80's she was a very successful realtor at Realtestaters. Enid was semi-retired in the '90's and traveled with Alvin throughout the western U.S., spending winters in Arizona. Her interests over the years were bowling, archery, water skiing, dune buggies, knitting, gardening, flying, and snowmobiles.

She is survived by her husband, Alvin; sons, Mike of Huntington Beach, Calif., and Gary of Medford.; grandchildren, Malcolm Edwards, Alexandra Edwards, Madeline Edwards, Dawn Edwards, Crystal Bingham; and great-grandson, Tyler John Bingham.

She will forever be in our hearts. Nothing is lost that love remembers.
