She was married for over 59 years to Paul Enfinger, Sr. who preceded her in death in 2006. Though they lived in the Wiregrass area most of their lives, she followed her husband's career wherever it led. Always finding a church home and church family to serve and worship with. As a married wife and mother, she was a member of Prattville First Baptist Church, in Prattville, Alabama and Southside Baptist Church in Dothan, Alabama. She was active in both places serving as a Sunday School Teacher and active in WMU as well as Meals on Wheels, working in outreach and always a prayer warrior. After becoming a widow she moved with her daughter's family to Chelsea, Alabama where she became a member of Liberty Baptist Church and a part of her beloved Widow's Might fellowship. Together these ladies served the community in many ways, most specifically to members of our armed forces who they lifted up in prayer and prepared care packages on a regular basis. She was also a part of their WMU and outreach groups. When her daughter's family moved to Mississippi she faithfully packed up and moved again, ready to become a part of Ridgecrest Baptist in Madison, Mississippi also becoming a part of the fellowship, serving, praying and participating in the Senior Adult programs as her health permitted. She was just getting settled in Chattanooga, TN after another move with family when the Lord called her home. Her life was about family and God and her desire that all should know Jesus Christ as the only way to an eternal life in Heaven.
Survivors include her two sons, Paul Enfinger, Jr. (Debbie), and Gary Enfinger (Becky), daughter, Patti Hall (Billy), three grandchildren, Brandi-Leigh Miller (Jim), Bethany Enfinger and Hailey Nicole Hall as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, and friends.
