Tribute to Esther Enyart

My name is Jeff Enyart and Esther Enyart was my mother. She was a mom to 8 children, a grandmom to 22 grandchildren and great-grandmom to 31 great-grandchildren (this number going up).
Mom was born prematurely and was only 4 pounds when born and fit in a shoebox with fingers the size of matchsticks. They tried to keep her warm by placing here in the warming oven of a stove but finally just put her with her mother.
Mom came from a large family with 9 siblings and was very proud of her heritage and extended family. She was most proud though of her own life and family.
One-time mom and dad came to visit me in college and my roommate’s parent commented that mom and dad were the nicest people that he had ever met. As that included mom, she was the nicest person you could ever meet. As mom aged we had problems with her giving away all her money. That was the kind of person she was.
Mom loved to crochet. She typically made blankets for all her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Mom loved cooking for us. She made lots of delicious meals and desserts. She made excellent home cooked meals. Deviled eggs, banana bread, stewed okra, and pies. She was known for her dill pickles and every year would find her canning many things. Sometimes when visiting mom, she would insist to cook for you. When you checked the refrigerator and cupboard you didn’t see anything worthwhile to cook but later mom would invite you to the table where an excellent meal was prepared. She did sometimes make some interesting mistakes like making Koolaid with salt instead of sugar. Or mixing up the pork gravy and caramel sauce.
Mom took care of us; always mending cuts, scrapes and bruises. Taking us to the doctor for visits if sick or needing vaccinations.
Mom was used to a country living. She never got bored with it or yearned to live in the city. She lived a simple life and was a simple person. She did her best to care for her husband and children. Her life was not easy but you never heard her complain. She had a saying she would say: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”
Mom was always interested in the cure-all. She bought vitamins of all sorts or other cure-all products. Someone once sold her some magic stickers, but she always thought everything was possible.
Mom tried always to win Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. One time I called and disguised my voice and asked her, “Is this Esther Enyart?” “yes “she said. “This is John Smith with Publishers clearing house. You are our next big winner!” She was really excited until she recognized my voice but we both got a laugh out of that.
Mom was also funny about mixing up our names. Many times my name become Johnff or Georff. I’m sure other experienced this too.
Mom was very competitive. She would try her best to beat you at any game. Scrabble, Dominoes, Yahtzee, or playing cards. She would be very intent to win. Best to let her win because it would bother her otherwise.
Mom was slow to the new technologies of cable tv and cell phones. She progressed thru phones until she got to the iphone but always struggled with texting. I always sent her the same text to have her to practice the texting. It read “Mom, Spank George!!”. She would laugh at that.
It was always fun to give mom new things to try like Cheese Cake Factory cheese cake or Starbucks Frappuccino’s. She always tried it and say “mmmm this is good!”
Probably the most important thing about Mom would be:
She would always tell you that she loved you and was proud of you no matter your circumstances.
