Enid Evelyn Record

July 10, 2013

Enid Evelyn Record 97, of Michigantown, IN, died at 3:48 p.m. July 10, 2013 at St. Vincent Frankfort Hospital. Born February 25, 1916 in Michigantown, IN to the late Walter L. & Belle (Dunn) Quick.
She married Edwin Record on December 31, 1932 and he preceded her in death on November 12, 1980. A lifelong Clinton County resident, Mrs. Record was a 1933 Michigantown High School graduate, and was the last living member of that class. The Michigantown Ganders just celebrated their 80th class reunion and was featured in The Frankfort Times on July 1st. Among her many jobs, Enid was a homemaker, farm wife, school bus driver for Michigantown High School, helped her husband Ed operate the Quick Coal & Fertilizer Company (which later became a greenhouse), she had also worked as a secretary at the Clinton County Hospital and Wesley Manor. A member of the Michigantown Christian Church since 1929, Mrs. Record taught Sunday school there. She was a Pink Lady, loved to quilt and was a member of the Kokomo Piecemakers Quilt Guild and the Frankfort Quilt Guild. She was also a member of the Michigantown Home Ec. Club, 77 year member Beard Order of Eastern Star, and a member of the American Dahlia Society. Enid did not attend college, but made sure her children attended Purdue. She and Ed were proud of their accomplishments as they put 4 kids through college in 9 years. They were national known dahlia growers for 53 years; growing dahlia’s from the size of dimes to the size of plates. Enid’s unusual arrangements gained national acclaim. After the death of her husband, she picked up another claim to fame – quilting. Too many to count, every quilt was hand stitched. Mondays were always spent with quilting ladies at the library, including last Monday. A beautiful quilt sits in her living room where she worked on it last Tuesday.

    I enjoyed visiting with Enid. She loved God, her family, her town, her Ganders and her school. I had the privilege of working on the Gander Basketball article with her. It was her desire to have a new roof put on the historic gym. She was an Amazing Lady and I will miss her. God blessed all of us who knew her.
