Tribute & Message From The Family

Ennis Elane Gadd, 79, of Elgood Road, died Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at Princeton Community Hospital, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Born June 7, 1933, at Bent Mountain, Ennis was the daughter of the late Jessie & Naomi Caldwell White. Of the Christian faith, she was a homemaker, gardener, seamstress and baker. She found her place in the world on her beloved country farm in rural Mercer County, alongside her husband, Robert. While she worked hard at many tasks throughout her life, her most favorite job came in the summers, she and Robert raised their gardens and sold the produce they harvested at the Mercer County Tailgate Farmer's Market. Through all the time Ennis spent tending the earth, raising livestock or baking a batch of rolls for market, her best-loved titles were that of wife, mom and "nanny". In addition to her parents, Ennis was preceded in death by her always-devoted husband of 61 years, Robert; brothers James and Edward White; and an infant sister, Joyce Fay. Survivors left to cherish her memory include three daughters, Connie Gadd Toler and husband, Doug, of Athens; Deborah Gadd Mitchem and husband, Danny, of Elgood; and Nancy Gadd Byrd, of Austin, Texas; two granddaughters, Tammie Toler of Athens; and Cristi Williams, of Elgood; great-grandson, Matthew Gadd Williams, of Elgood; great-granddaughter, Abigail Elane Williams-Fry, of Elgood; brother, Clendal White and his wife, Patty; and a very special friend, Beverly McManaway. Funeral services will be held 2:00 P.M. Sunday, April 14, 2013 from the Burns Wornal Chapel of the Memorial Funeral Directory on the Athens Road in Princeton with Jim Stanley officiating. Burial will follow in Roselawn Memorial Gardens in Princeton. Friends may visit with the family Sunday from 1:00 P.M. until the service hour at the funeral home.
