KRAUSE, Enid (nee Millar) Died peacefully Saturday, October 20th, 2012 in Victoria, BC. Survived by her husband of 59 years, Dr. Robin Krause; their children, Susan, Gillian and Robin, and five grandchildren. Enid was a trained Registered Nurse from the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and a founding Director and teacher at the Winnipeg Montessori School. After arriving from Britain in the mid 1960s Enid's life of community service was embodied through her highly capable advocacy for children with her energy concentrated on the needs of young people facing barriers of growth, development and formal education. Recognized by way of the Manitoba Premier's Award for Volunteerism, Enid's untiring dedication focused on direct service and not the influence of position or regular and conspicuous acknowledgement. When she identified problems within community-based volunteer organizations, she set about to implement changes that brought positive results and benefit to those in need. Vibrant and caring in life, she will always be fondly remembered by many. A celebration of Enid's life is scheduled for November 20th, 2012 at First Metropolitan Memorial Church, Balmoral Road at Quadra Street, Victoria at 2:00 pm. Friends and family are encouraged to share mementos and short stories about Enid. Donations can be sent to the Stephen Lewis Foundation or to First Metropolitan United Church, Victoria for maintenance of its programs especially those related to Children and Youth. Thanks goes to Doctor Laura Phillips and the care team at Glen Warren Lodge for their support of Enid and the family.
