ObituaryShare A Memory
Enid Gage passed away October 14, 2017 at Prestige Post-Acute & Rehab in Ellensburg. Enid was born on October 9, 1936 in Tisdale, Saskatchewan Canada to Frederick and Kate Ward. In the late 40’s and after WWII the family immigrated to Idaho, where her father Fred, was a Minister in the Episcopal Church while her mother Kate stayed home to raise Enid and her siblings.
 
On October 15, 1955 Enid married the love of her life Seth Gage right here in Ellensburg. Together they had three children. Enid worked in food services for the Ellensburg School District. 
 
Mom was gregarious and compassionate about people.  Her compassion for others was demonstrated in her desire to help individuals and families facing the end of life. In early 1983 Enid and Peg Rowbottham started Hospice of Kittitas County; today we know it as Hospice Friend’s. In 1983 Hospice of Kittitas County helped 12 individuals and their families. Today, nearly 35 years later on average Hospice Friend’s helps 800 individuals and families each year. 
 
In 2010 Enid and Peg received the Washington State Jefferson Award for their public and volunteer service, given by the Seattle City club. 
 
For those that met Enid; know that in doing so you had a friend for Life.
 
Enid is survived by her loving husband and best friend of 62 years, Seth, and their 3 children, Thomas, William, Sandra, and their families: Thomas and his wife Colleen, Katie and her husband Nick, John; William and his wife Katie, Connor; Sandra Delzer, Jake and Jordan. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother William and sisters Audrey and Joyce.
