Edna M. Enneking, 90

Greensburg — Edna M. Enneking, 90, of Batesville, died Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at St. Andrew’s Health Campus.

Born Sept. 21, 1922 in Franklin County, she was the daughter of Mary (Ronnebaum) and Henry Flaspohler Jr. She married Alphonse Enneking May 12, 1942 at St. Mary’s of the Rock Church in St. Mary’s, and he preceded her in death Jan. 1, 1979.

Edna worked as an assembler at Hill-Rom for 20 years before retiring in 1987. She was a member of St. Louis Church, the Batesville Eagles Aerie #1130, the Batesville VFW Post #3183 Ladies Auxiliary, and was an Associate Member of the Sisters of St. Francis Convent.

Faith was important to Edna, and in addition to daily prayer and a long-standing prayer group member, several of her interests were church and prayer-related. She loved to dance and would attend dances often at the Eagles Club and throughout the Batesville area. While she didn’t really like to cook, her family said she made the best cookies. Edna was also an avid reader who enjoyed novels, and she kept up on politics as well.

A staunch democrat, according to her family, you might be on the receiving end of “the look” if she disagreed with you.

In later years, she began going on bus tours traveling to and visiting many interesting destinations.

Family, though, was her true passion. She had a special relationship with each of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and adored having them around. Up until recently, she was still babysitting for some of the great-grandchildren.

Edna is survived by her daughters Helen Jean Kramer of Greensburg, Patti Weberding of Batesville, Donna Kraus of Sunman, Marilyn Weberding of Batesville; sons Daniel of Naples, Fla., Ronald of Renton, Wash., Richard of Batesville, James of Bluffton, Ohio; 25 grandchildren and 65 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by her sister, Helel Flaspohler, two grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home with a prayer service conducted at 4 p.m. by the Batesville VFW Ladies’ Auxiliary. Funeral services begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 13, at St. Louis Church, Rev. Randy Summers officiating. Burial follows in the church cemetery.

The family requests memorials to the Elizabeth Enneking Scholarship Fund or St. Louis School.
