Janet Alexena (Ena) Lundy Reid Fagan, 91 years old, passed away peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her loving family and husband of 70 years. She is with Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
Ena was born Oct. 1, 1922, in Sooke, B.C., Canada, to Alexzander Reid and Agnes McCracken. Growing up in Seattle, Wash., Ena graduated from Franklin High School along with her future husband, Bill Fagan, and attended Seattle Pacific University. On Sept. 9, 1943, Ena married her Billy, the love of her life, in San Antonio, Texas, while he attended flight school. Throughout her life, Ena and Bill returned with their children to their roots in the Pacific Northwest. Because of these annual visits, Seattle and Sooke are like second homes to her children.
As an Air Force officer's wife, Ena, raised her five children during three wars and multiple stations throughout the United States. Ena was a professional multi media artist, a career that spanned 40 years. She was also an accomplished baker, costume designer, and family event coordinator extraordinaire. Ena's many artistic awards and accomplishments include the honor of being a signature member of the Southeast Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society, a founding member of an organization that has become the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County. Former Director of the Arts and Design Society of Fort Walton Beach, President of the Officers Wives Club from1962 to 65, Art Educator and hard-working Honor Guard Wench with Billy Bowlegs in 1985. Ena continued her education throughout her life studying under renowned artists such as, Judy Betts, Edgar Whitney, Paul Sample, and Wilfred Bowen.
In addition to her professional accomplishments, Ena was passionate about helping others. She would often reach out to those who needed a little extra care and anonymously deliver handmade and beautifully decorated cookies to their door. She made friends wherever she went and was a beacon of energy, light and optimism for those who knew her. Ena modeled artistic celebration, compassion and creativity for her children. Her legacy will forever live on through their independent creative endeavors, which she nurtured. Ena celebrated all that life offered and created traditions and positive memories for her family, too numerous to list.
Ena is survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Col. William M. Fagan, U.S. Air Force(Ret.); her children and their respective spouses, Michael (Julie), Ronald, David(Kristie), Paul (MaryJean) and Janet Fagan; her grandchildren, Sean, Ian, Kristopher, Mary (Joe), Matthew (Laura), William, and Joshua, and her great-grandchild, Reid.
