Enid Silverman

Enid Silverman, nee Salamoff, age 58, beloved wife of Paul; loving mother of Elizabeth Sigale (Keith), Nori Gleeman (Jay), Brett (Melissa) and Jeremy (Gitta Satryani); proud and loving grandmother of Danny and Clara; caring sister to Judith Barman (Ken); and friend to her Welsh Springer, Bailey, who stayed at her side during her long illness. Enid had a Master's Degree in Home Ec Education and taught high school Home Economics prior to serving in the Peace Corps. Enid spent two years in Malaysia teaching at the Mara Institute of Technology, the other M.I.T. in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. After returning to the United States Enid felt a calling to become a nurse. After her fourth child was born Enid returned to school and became a nurse while continuing to nurture her family. She obtained an Associate's Degree from College of DuPage and became a Registered Nurse. She later received a Master's Degree in Nursing from Rush University. Enid continued her education becoming a Clinical Nurse Specialist and ultimately a Nurse Practitioner. The last 10 years of her career she was Director of Pulmonary Rehab at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Even though she enjoyed directing the department, her first love was patient care. For over three years Enid held her own against Cancer of the Brain. For most of that time she continued to work, traveled extensively throughout the world, visited her namesake, Enid, Oklahoma - something she had wanted to do for years, shared the joy of the weddings of her son, Brett and daughter, Nori, and the birth of her first granddaughter, Clara. Enid served on the Board of Directors of the American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago and was an active member of DuPage-Will Hadassah. Funeral Services will be held Friday, Aug. 26 at 11 a.m. at Congregation Beth Shalom, 772 W. 5th Avenue, Naperville, IL. Burial will follow the service at Naperville Cemetery.
