Enid Glenadine Trebilcock was born Nov. 16, 1906, to Axel and Frances Pedersen. She lived 100 full years and went to be with her Lord on Feb. 26, 2007.

Enid was born in River Rouge, Mich., and lived most of her childhood years in Moose Lake, Minn., and Superior.

As a young woman, Enid was employed at the Superior Children's Home and later worked as an operator at Wisconsin Bell Telephone Co.

Preceding Enid in death was her husband of 48 years. She married William John Trebilcock on Oct. 6 , 1931. They moved to Lake Nebagamon in 1939 where they raised their two daughters, Kathleen (Kay), and Carolyn. Also preceding Enid in death were two brothers and four sisters.

For most of the past 20 years, Enid had been living in the state of Washington with her daughter, Carolyn, and her son-in-law, Ron Collette. She experienced a very healthy and active life while there and was able to enjoy traveling with her daughter and son-in-law throughout the Pacific Northwest. She also made several trips with Ron and Carolyn to the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tennessee and California.

On Oct. 8, 2006, Enid suffered a stroke. She made a remarkable recovery and was able to enjoy her 100th birthday with family and friends, which is where this photograph was taken. Following her 100th birthday in November she experienced several more smaller strokes making her life more difficult. On Feb. 26, 2007, God whispered to her, "Come with me Enid, and I'll set you free." She took His hand and followed Him -- knowing peace and joy at the close of her days.

Enid is survived by her daughters, Kathleen (Don) Johnson and Carolyn (Ron) Collette, six grandsons, Jay (Sheri), Paul (Amy), Craig (Roni), Mark (Mary), James (Kristina) Johnson, and Stephen (Valerie) Collette. She is also survived by three granddaughters, Kari (Mark) Morris, Beth (Bart) Gilbert and Julie (Joshua) Thompson. Also surviving are 14 great-grandchildren, and two great, great-grandsons.

Enid's passing has left a void for all of us who loved her, but we will fill that void with remembered joys of shared times, and remembrances of a gracious, loving and giving woman.

A memorial or graveside service and interment will be held in late summer at the Park View Cemetery in Hawthorne. Notification of date and time will be available in the near future.
