Enid Oresa Krepps

1927-2014


— Enid Oresa Krepps was born October 9, 1927, in Chicago, Illinois, to Erceil and Pearl Boothe.  After graduating early from high school she attended Moody Bible Institute and graduated in 3 and a half years.

She was a school teacher for most of her life but also worked as a secretary and for a brief time was a house mother in a Louisiana orphanage.  She met her future husband, E. Don Krepps, and after a brief courtship they married on September 3, 1955.  Daughter, Meri, came along in October 1956 and son, Ken, was born July 1958.

Since Don was in the army, the family spent much of their lives in or near military housing.  Hopewell, VA, Tripoli, Libya, and Tacoma, WA were some of the places they lived.  After retirement they also lived in Lake Havasu, AZ.  After her husband's death in 2000 she moved to Oklahoma to be close to her children.

Enid enjoyed singing and participated in many church/community choirs. She was a member of the Singing Churchwomen of Oklahoma.  She was involved in Bible teaching, Mission Trips (Mongolia, Lebanon, & Brazil), nursing home ministry, and other church missions and ministries.

Enid is preceded in death by her parents, Erceil and Pearl Boothe; husband, Don Krepps; and brother, Russell Boothe.  She is survived by a brother, Al Boothe and his wife, Bev, of Tampa, FL; Sister-in-law, Linda Boothe, of Broken Arrow, OK; Daughter, Meri Taylor of OKC, OK, Steve Taylor (Son-in-Law) of OKC, OK; Son, Ken, and his wife, Jenny Krepps of Okay, OK.  Three grandchildren-Heather Shannon and husband Sean of OKC, OK, Ryan Taylor of OKC, OK, and Lauren Moore and her husband Keith of Broken Arrow, OK.  Five Great Grandchildren-Jimmy, River, & Logan Shannon; Heidi  & Kinley Moore.  There are also many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Memorial Service will be held at FBC, Okay, on Saturday, February 1, at 1PM.  Missions was Enid's passion so the family suggests that in lieu of flowers, people consider making donations in her honor to the Missions Fund of First Baptist Church of Okay (P.O. Box 100, Okay, OK 74446).
