Enid G. Langille
Enid G. Langille, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital on Wednesday, November 22, 2017.
Born inYarmouth, NS, she was a member of the large and loving family of the late George and Flora (Jeffrey) Brittain. Ten of her eleven brothers and sisters (William, Jack, George, Ross, Doris, Margaret, Mary, Ruth, Anne and Barbara) have predeceased her. She is survived by her youngest sister Elizabeth (Carl) Smith of Windsor.
Enid went to Halifax during the war and served the Army in a secretarial role. It was there that she met her husband of 60 years, Laurie, and they began their married life together. In 1961, the family moved to Moncton. Becoming a member of Mountain View Church in 1970, Enid joined the choir and continued her participation there for the next 45 years. Her volunteer work in the community included the Red Cross, the YWCA, the CNIB and the Moncton Hospital. Her husband Laurie passed away in 2007.
In addition to her sister Elizabeth, Enid is survived by sons Christopher (Nancy) Langille of Tide Head, NB; Richard (late Mary Anna) Langille of Halifax, N.S.; daughter, Nancy Langille of Halifax, NS; grandchildren, Clifford (Robyn Black) Langille and Martha (Adrian) MacGowan, both of Halifax; and Scott Langille of Tide Head, N B; great grandchildren, Joey and Genevieve; several nieces, nephews and extended family members.
People often used the word 'remarkable' to describe Enid because of the way she held fast to her independence, her energy, her sense of humour, and her keen interest in new people and things, - becoming larger in her life as time went on. She seemed somewhat mystified by the depth of love and admiration that she inspired although it came as a direct result of who she was and the way she lived her life. Those who knew her will feel their lives have been richer for it and will miss her bright spirit.
A Memorial Service to celebrate and honour Enid’s life will be held at Mountain View United Church, 85 MacBeath Avenue, on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm, with Rev. Danny Compton leading the service. Reception to follow in the church hall.
Interment will be in Elmwood Cemetery in the spring.
Arrangements entrusted to Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995).
