Helen Patricia (Condon) Enny

Helen Patricia (Condon) Enny, 84, of Whitehall, NY passed away with family by her side on Aug. 25 at Westmount Health Facility, after a brief illness.

Helen was born on March 17, 1924 in Brooklyn, NY. She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Krumm) Condon.  Helen has three brothers, John, Thomas and Louis Condon, all predeceased; a brother Joseph Condon of Largo, Fla., and a sister, Julia Kaminski of Ocala, Fla. At 15 years old Helen took on the responsibility of raising her siblings when her mother passed away.  Her strength was tried at a very early age and her love and dedication to family was evident.

Helen married William (Bill) Enny on December 14, 1942 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Helen and Bill lived for a few years in Brooklyn before they moved to Hopewell Junction and finally made their home in Whitehall in 1954.

Helen and Bill thoroughly enjoyed dancing.  They were known around town for their dancing skills in the waltz, the jitterbug, the foxtrot and her favorite, the Lindy. They were also members of a square dancing group The Apple Jacks and Jills. 

Bill passed away on October 27, 1995.

Helen was a well-known and active citizen in the community of Whitehall. She worked for a number of years at Whitehall Central School.  Helen was a member and supporter of the Red Hats, the Hospital Guild, Catholic Daughters, Save Our Skene, Columbiettes, Whitehall Senior Citizens, Heart Beats and Our Lady of Hope Kitchen Committee. 

Above all, Helen loved being a mother to her 10 children.  The principles of faith, family, food, and friends prevailed. Her children include:  Raymond Enny and his wife Barbara of The Villages, Fla.; Patricia Schanstra and her husband George of Brooklyn, N.Y.; George Enny and his wife Lynn of Whitehall;  Helen Vela and her husband Joseph of Longmont, Colo.; Grover Enny and his wife Marlene of Longmont, Colo.; Beth Currier and her husband Clint of Queensbury; Dorothy Gordon and her husband Martin of Queensbury; Bridget Barlow and her husband Shawn of South Glens Falls; Amy Ingleston and her late husband Jim Ingleston of Glens Falls; and William Enny and his wife Donna of Queensbury.  Helen is also survived by 27 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren, all of whom rallied around her table to enjoy the warmth and comfort of her home and her love.

The joy that family and friends provided through company and support has forever touched her life.  There are innumerable in-laws, nieces/nephews and friends whose lives have blessed her and likewise she them.

The Mass of Christian Burial was conducted on Thursday, Aug. 28 at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church  in Whitehall at 11 a.m. by Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating.

Family and friends were invited call at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street, Whitehall from 3 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 27. The Catholic Daughters recited the rosary at 7 p.m.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in memory of Helen Enny to any of the following: Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, NY 12887, Skenesborough First Responders, 57 Skenesborough Drive, Whitehall, NY 12887 or Save Our Skene "S.O.S." Whitehall Skene Manor Preservation, Inc., 8 Potters Terrace Whitehall, New York 12887

The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to the entire staff of Westmount Health Facility for their tireless, demanding and often-thankless work in caring for Helen and the many patients of Westmount Health Facility.

In reflection of Helen’s 84 years of life she lived with God in her heart, joy in her words, and love in her every action. She was truly an inspiration and will always be greatly loved.
