I will miss Ena. She was one of the few living links I had to my mother's side of the family. Ena had total recall of the bumps and glories of two generations previous to mine and it was a great pleasure to hear her tell the stories with her characteristic considerate frankness. Because of distance we didn't see each other often in person. But until fairly recently we had long telephone conversations a couple of times per year. I have so many memories of Ena, going back to childhood. I can visualize her face, her clear, direct, eye contact; her measured, thoughtful manner of speaking, and above all the slight smile of amusement that always seemed to lift the corner of her mouth.

On behalf of the entire Humphrey family, we would like to extend our sympathy to all of your family with the passing of Ena. I have listened to many cherished memories that my parents have shared over the years reflecting on their wonderful friendship with both Les and Ena. My mum was hoping to pay her respects personally but was not able on the day. Heartfelt wishes, Karen and Bernice Humphrey

Our Condolences to the Roberts Family :
On behalf of Dr. Red Howard ( d. August 2015 ) and Helen ( d. 1999 ), the Howard family would like to express our sincerest condolences to the Roberts on the passing of Ena. We can only surmise that they came to know each other in the late 1940's when Ena and Les lived in Barons, AB while Red and Helen lived for a time in Carmangay, less than 6 miles away ! She was one of our parents most cherished and oldest friends, along with her husband Les and was a beloved guest at our home ( and vice versa ) for many decades while Red and Helen resided in Calgary, up until their move to Victoria, B.C. in the early 1980's. Visits back and forth to the coast and Calgary continued for a number of years thereafter. As children we can always recall weekend evenings of bridge with the Roberts and it was during that time an additional professional relationship evolved as Les took on the role as Chairman of the Lay Board at the Calgary General Hospital, while Dr. Howard was the Chief of Staff.
Ena was a wonderfully lively woman, of infinite patience and well read characteristics that endeared her to our mother. Our paths have continued to cross over the years : children have attended high school where Les was principal, have taught and retired from that school and have worked with one of Ena and Les' children in the medical field in Vancouver.
Our deepest sympathies on your loss we know your faith and families will sustain you in the time ahead.
Take comfort in a long well-lived life rich with memories to reflect back upon.
Regards,
David, Catharine, Charlotte, Bill, Bob, Gordon and Margaret Howard

Our deepest sympathy. Many fond memories of all of you - your mom was amazing and so lovely. 5 kids and 95 years - quite the accomplishments! Thinking of you all. Janice Sampson (Jepson)
