Shirley Enns Obituary

Shirley Anne Enns

1949 – 2024

Shirley Anne Enns was born in Winkler, Manitoba on January 1, 1949.  She was the youngest of seven children of Abram and Elizabeth Fehr.

She grew up on a farm near Miami, Manitoba until her early teens, then moved to Winkler, Manitoba.  When she was 18 years old, she met the love of her life. A friend of Bob’s dared him to ask her out on a date.  It went very well because they married on June 15, 1969.  They had one child, Valerie Lynn born June 4, 1973.

They lived in the Winkler area until 1977 when they moved to Carman, Manitoba.

Shirley had a part time job at a local bakery for a few years, but her main job was a stay at home Mom. 

In 1985 she had a massive stroke that left her right side paralyzed.  With lots of hard work she was able to almost fully recover.  After that she rededicated her life to God and found peace and comfort.

In 1997, Bob and Shirley had the opportunity to buy a business with Bob’s brother and sister-in-law, Rick and Agatha.  That actually made a dream come true for Shirley, to live in Alberta and be near horses.

After Bob’s retirement they spent 11 winters in Yuma, Arizona.  Those were very special and fun times for them.  Many friends and memories were made.

When Bob became ill, Shirley was his full-time caregiver for as long as she was able.  Shirley moved into here current condo in April of 2022 and that became something she never regretted.  She became a social butterfly and made so many new friends, she felt like she had a new lease on life.  She was so happy.

In December, Shirley was diagnosed with cancer, but she kept her sweet nature, and concern for others up to the end.

Survived by her husband Bob of 54 years, her daughter Val and her husband Jeff, two grandchildren Leandra and Matthew, two sisters, Betty Elias and Marge Fehr, many in-laws and countless friends.
