Enid Meymaris
Gerou, born
January 28, 1924
in Natick, Massachusetts,
passed
away peacefully
at St. Anthony's
Hospital in
Lakewood, Colorado, on
August 8, 2014 surrounded
by many of her loving
family members. Enid's
husband of 62 years,
James F. Gerou, predeceased
her in 2005. She is
survived by her son James
F. Gerou Jr. (wife Pat) of
Delmar, NY, her daughter
Nancy E. Gerou (partner
Diane) of Evergreen, CO,
and another son Phillip
H. Gerou (wife Cheri)
also of Evergreen, CO.
She is also survived by 4
grandchildren and one
great-grandchild who had
just visited with Enid at
the end of July.
Enid was a graduate of
the Walnut Hill School in
Natick, MA. In the 1950's
and early 1960's 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,
CO, then to Steamboat
Springs, and then on
to Lookout Mountain until
1987, while vacationing
in Scottsdale, AZ.
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 80's. 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, CO. 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 the Rockland
Community Church, 17 S.
Mt. Vernon Country Club
Road, Golden, CO 80401,
on Wednesday September
24 at 1:00 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.
