BOZEMAN — Enid was born on Oct. 1, 1935, in Webster Wis., to Elmer Gene Kleckner and Madge Edith (Larrabee) Kleckner.

Enid had a lifelong desire to live in Montana, but found herself drawn back to Danbury, Wis., several times, where she was a member of the Danbury Methodist Church.

Enid dedicated her life to health work in both Wisconsin and Montana. She worked many years at Capeside Cove in Siren, Wis., as she was caring for her ailing mother. She also worked several years at Intermountain Deaconess Home in Helena. She earned a degree in 1995 from MSU-Billings at the age of 60. She continued her public service work with Senior Companions until her retirement forced by a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s-like dementia.

Enid spent her final years in the excellent care of Springmeadows Assisted Living in Bozeman, where she made many friends, both with other residents and the staff. The family is eternally grateful for the loving and compassionate care Enid received from the staff at Springmeadows and Rocky Mountain Hospice during her final days.

Preceding her in death are her son Denis, her parents and her sisters Shirley Sears, and Kathryn Harris. Enid is survived by her sisters Dolores Cockerham and Jean (Kenny) Rasmussen, brothers Robert (Margie) Lawson and William (Peggy) Kleckner, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

There will be a graveside service for Enid at Meadowview Cemetery in Manhattan on Friday, May 16, 2014, at 11 a.m.
