Gerou (partner Diane) of Evergreen, and another son Phillip H. Gerou (wife Cheri) also of Evergreen.

Enid was a graduate of the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Mass. In the 1950s and early 1960s while living on Cape Cod, she raised the three children, assisted James with his construction business, and honed her tennis skills. In 1964, the family moved to Aspen, then to Steamboat Springs, and then on to Lookout Mountain, until 1987, while vacationing in Scottsdale, Ariz., James and Enid moved permanently to Arizona in 1987, living in Scottsdale, Carefree, Paradise Valley, Munds Park and finally Sun City West. While there, Enid played tennis and golf regularly until well into her 80s.
She was always very social, loving to have friends over for coffee, lunch or card games. Her sense of humor was ever-present. Her laugh was infectious and will be sorely missed. In 2009, Enid returned to Colorado and lived at Golden Pond Retirement Community in Golden. Thanks to all the caregivers there who provided so much continuous care and love for Enid.
A memorial celebration for family and friends will be held at Rockland Community Church, 17 S. Mount Vernon Country Club Road in Golden, on Wednesday Sept. 24, at 1 p.m. with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Rockland Church or Foothills Animal Shelter at 580 McIntyre St., Golden, CO 80401.
