Harriett Lee Enzor, 86, of Newport News, Va., passed away peacefully in Virginia Beach on January 23, 2021 with her daughter, Andrea, by her side. She was born on August 6, 1934 in Newport News, to the late James F Spotts, Sr. and Myrtle Ware Spotts.

She attended Newport News High School and as a young woman, worked for the Adelson Family at North End Pharmacy, running the soda fountain and later, as a clerk. It was there that she met a handsome, charismatic shipyard worker, Andrew C. Enzor "Andy", who would later become her spouse. Harriett and Andy were both recently divorced when they met. She had one son from a previous marriage and he had four children of his own. They married and blended their families, settling into their new home in Denbigh. Four years later, they welcomed the birth of their daughter Andrea.

She then transitioned to Denbigh Pharmacy where she retired as a clerk after many years. Harriett was a kind, caring, and extremely devoted wife and mother. Her priority was her family, even while working full time and running a household. She was an exemplary role model for her children and theirs. She had a heart of gold and saw the good in everyone. After retirement, she and Andy were passionate about being "Memaw" and "Pawpaw" to their grandchildren and being a strong presence in their lives. Andy passed in 2017, after 55 years of marriage.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her sister Marilyn Corriher, son and daughter-in-law Larry S. and BJ McCandless, and grandson Zachary Bracken. She is survived by her five children and their spouses: Andrea Enzor Bracken (Scott), David Enzor (Cynthia), Debbie Viets (Don), Tim Enzor (Donna), and Mike Enzor (Barbara); eight grandchildren: Matt, Donald, Wayne, Mindy, Andrew, Keith, Jillian and Angie; five great-grandchildren; sister LaVerne Broczkowski; brother James Spotts, Jr.; sisters-in-law: Doris Harwood and Geraldine Fructchman (Irv); nieces, nephew, and friends.

Harriett was blessed to have many faithful neighbors, for she resided in the same home in which she and Andy raised their children for almost 60 years. Neighbors from the block have been incredibly supportive over the years - they were extended family and loved dearly.

A special thanks to Mary Beth Morgan P.A. of TPMG Grafton, the staff at Denbigh Pharmacy, and all of the Healthcare Specialists that supplied the most professional care to Harriett over the years. Most recently, the compassionate staff of Sentara Princess Anne Hospital and Westminster Hospice at Home.

A graveside service will be held at at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at Peninsula Memorial Park in the Garden of the Good Shepherd. Guests are required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Arrangements are under the care of Peninsula Funeral Home, 11144 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, VA 23601.

She was a beautiful person inside and out. She loved her family and always took care of them and anyone else that was around. My mother (Helen McIntosh) were friends for many many years and she even babysat Andrea. My condolences to all of the family.

I will always remember my "sister, best-friend, neighbor" Harriet! Such a lovely, warm-hearted soul. I miss her already and I am quite sure she and Andrew are having a ball planting a beautiful garden in heaven. Rest in peace, Harriet, and just know I love you! May God continue to bless your family!

Andrea and Family, Your mother had been very much on my mind in recent weeks, as one of us usually called the other at Christmas time. Alas, I had not yet called this year, and I sent no cards, though she had been in my thoughts and prayers. My mother, Betty Knez, was her very good neighbor, and I can vouch that everything you say about her caring, loving nature, her seeing the good in everyone, and her being an exemplary role model is absolutely true. She was a good friend to my mom as my mom got older and lived alone across the street. That is when I really became Harriet's friend on my own, instead of just a neighbor's daughter who grew up. Harriet always welcomed me when I visited after her my mom's passing, filling me in on the accomplishments of her beloved children and grandchildren. I feel like I watched them all grow up, even though I did not meet them. My heart goes out to you, as I know it is filled with both love and loss. I hope that her passing leaves you with her presence in your hearts and memories of joy. I know she was missing Andy--my aunt Doris and I were speaking of him and Harriet only a week ago, as I was sitting on the sturdy backyard swing bench he had made for them many years ago. I am envisioning them at a backyard cookout with the neighbors of the past, no social distancing required. My love and sincere sympathy are with you all.
