Winona “Connie” Eno

April 07, 1926 ‒ December 14, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Winona “Connie” Eno had her faith become sight as she passed into the arms of her Savior Thursday, December 14, 2017 at home in the presence of her son and daughter-in-law. She was 91.

She was born April 7, 1926 to parents Fred & Lucy (Short) Carnes in AuSable Forks, New York. On May 4, 1947, she married Alton Eno and they shared 45 years of marriage until he passed away January 12, 1993. Now they are together again.

It was 57 years ago that her life was changed in the best way possible. After seeing the change in Alton’s life when he put his faith in Jesus, even though she was previously religious, she, too, made Jesus her Savior. She lived the rest of her life giving God the glory.

Connie worked at Berean Baptist Chruch as secretary to Pastor David Pound for many years while taking care of Alton (who became disabled in his 50’s) and their son David who had Down Syndrome.

She enjoyed playing Rummikub weekly and her daily crossword puzzle. Connie was a dedicated sports fan. She avidly watched the NY Giants, Cleveland Browns, Ohio State Buckeyes football, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers and any golf event.

She is survived by son and daughter-in-law Rev. Jeffrey and Pat Eno of Newark, OH; three granddaughters and their spouses Jessica (Ed) Runyon of Crystal River, FL, Karen (Rick) Young of O’Fallon, IL and Grace (Tom) Nuth of Newark, OH; great-grandchildren Josiah Snyder, Jeremiah Blakely, Jordan Blakely, Jazzlynn Runyon, Nathaniel Young, Rachel Young and Abigail Young; brother-in-law John Eno and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; son David Eno and her siblings Wilfed Carnes and Carolyn Mussen.

The Eno family will receive friends Monday, December 18, 2017 from 12-2 p.m. at the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service honoring Connie’s life will begin immediately at 2 p.m. Pastor Bill Heaton will officiate. Burial will follow in Lexington Cemetery.

  • Dear Pastor Jeff, Pat, and family,
    We pray for God’s encouragement and grace in the days ahead. My Mother went to heaven just about a year ago. There are still days that I think, “I sure would like to call Mom up and share some time on the phone.” Great to know that your Mother was a woman of faith.
    We love you! Mick and Nancy Funderburg

  • Dear Brother Jeff and Pat,

    Our hearts and our prayers are with you. May the God of all comfort now comfort you with the magnificent truth of where your mother is and that a fantastic reunion is awaiting you and all of us with you. -Ike & Nancy Graham

  • I was honored to have worked with Connie for many years at Berean Baptist Church. She was a wonderful secretary in every way…very professional and always respecting the need for confidentiality. More than her work skills, she was a truly devoted follower of Jesus Christ. She wedded strong convictions with a good sense of humor…an unbeatable combination. Other than her love for the New York Giants and cats, I could not find fault with Connie…she was a delightful friend and co-worker…Sher and I will sincerely miss her until that reunion in glory. Due to our presence in Thailand, we can not attend the funeral service in person, but we will be present in spirit.

    Dave and Sher Pound

  • Dear Jeff, Pat, Jessica, Karen and Grace,
    We are sorry to hear about your mom and grandma. It is so good to know that she is with Jesus now. Her life story is such a great testimony. God bless you all as you share memories together.

  • So sorry for your loss, but rejoice with you that she now walks with her Savior. Connie was a sweet and caring lady. Sweet memories from times spent with her. Warm memories from times spent with you and all of the girls. Hugs to all.
