On Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at the Charleswood Personal Care Home, Enyd Forrest passed away gently in her sleep as she so deserved at the age of 99 years.

Enyd was born February 5, 1921 and grew up on a farm near Chatham, Ontario, the second oldest in a family of 5.

Lieutenant H. Enyd Forrest served as a nurse with the Royal Canadian Army Corps in an army hospital in Ottawa during WWII which is where she met Ian Roderick Forrest. They married and have 6 children: Edward, Timothy, Patrick, Ian, Chloe, and Donald. She continued her nursing career in Winnipeg and worked at the General and Misericordia Hospitals, but spent most her nursing career at Deer Lodge Hospital when it was operated by Veterans Affairs.

Enyd and Rod were active members in the Kinsmen and Kinettes organization for many years and established many lifelong friendships.

Enyd leaves to cherish her memory her sons Ed and wife Angela (nee Cholakis) and Don; son in law Joe Sample; youngest brother Charles Skipper (Beverley); grandchildren Christopher, Jeffrey, Stephen, Jennifer, Enyd and Ross; and great grandchildren Eloise, Henry and Rose with a fourth great-grandchild expected in March 2021.

Besides her husband, Enyd was predeceased by children Ian, Chloe, Timothy and Patrick.

Cremation has taken place and no public service will be held.

The family extends their thanks to Charleswood Personal Care Home for their kindness and care.
