Enid I.


Feburary 16, 1924 -
October 18, 2012

Enid was born in Kalispell, Montana to Carl and Marie Johnson.

They moved to Spokane when she was a young girl.

Enid graduated from North
Central High School in 1942.

She met the love of her life, Milton Nuechterlein, at Pattison’s Roller Rink.

Milton was a service man stationed at Fort George Wright.

They married on May 6th of 1944.

They have two children, Kathi Colasanto of Carefree, Arizona and Carl Nuechterlein of Nine Mile Falls, Washington.

She has four grand- children Gina Ricotta of Scottsdale, Arizona, Jim Colasanto of Houston, Texas, Kate Robnett of Beaverton, Oregon and Jackie Epperson of Tacoma, Washington.

She also has six great-grand- children with a seventh due this month.

Enid was preceded in death by her husband, Milton in 2007 and four sisters and two brothers.

She is survived by one sister, Helene, of Olympia, Washington.

With such a large family, she is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
Enid was a local artist of note, specializing in oil painting.

She was especially adept at reproductions of old masters but still let her free side be expressed with abstract paintings.
The memorial will be a private family event.
