Obituary for Patricia Ennes, 76
–On May 20, 2019, Patricia “Pat” Ennes, of Paso Robles, CA went to be with her Lord at age 76. She battled cancer the same way she approached everything in life, with determination, grace, joy, and humor. When her hair fell out during chemo, she wore a red tricolor wig from a mermaid costume for special occasions and she made it work!
Pat was born to James and Helen Ellingson and grew up in Oregon. She married her beloved husband of 55 years, Richard Ennes, and left her mark on the world while he served in the Air Force. They made homes in 3 countries and 8 states. She lived her passion for fitness and health. She created community and lived generously through all of her activities, particularly through her faith and church.
The last 30 years were also her dancing years, including liturgical dancing and community jazz ensembles. Her last dance was entertaining Paso Robles’ seniors at Christmas.
Pat is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband Richard, daughters Nikol and Kjirsten, four grandchildren, sisters Carol and Louise, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on June 8, 2019 at Hope Lutheran Church in Atascadero, CA.
