Virginia “Ginny” Enright died on Nov. 15. She was the widow of William F. Enright Jr. and the mother of Tracy Enright Taft of South Salem, son Kevin, who predeceased her, and son Christopher of Suffern. 

Ginny was born on May 30, 1933, to Joseph E. and Carmen I. Brennan. She attended Ardsley public schools where she played the flute in the orchestra, sang in the varsity choir and assisted in the music department. She was a member for a time of the Yonkers Philharmonic. She graduated from Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. where she served in leadership positions.

After graduation, she worked for Compton Advertising in New York City until she had children. She worked for a time for the Town of New Castle and co-owned and operated, for a period, Vanier Real Estate Company in Armonk. Recently she was employed by the Chappaqua Public Library.

She was a communicant of the Church of Saint John and Saint Mary in Chappaqua. She enjoyed serving as a frequent election inspector in her community. Ginny loved her neighborhood of Castle Road in Chappaqua and continued to follow the exploits of its close families long after they and she moved away. She was an avid sports fan, especially of the New York Giants and New York Yankees, both of whom in some years tended to disappoint her. She could harmonize to almost any song, and she and her sister sang to all who would listen and for their own amusement. 

Besides her children, she leaves her son-in-law, Paul Taft; her beloved grandchildren, Jeffrey Taft and Jennifer Enright and Jeffrey’s wife Christina; and her sister, Jean Horend, and brother-in-law James Horend. 

There will be a private memorial service at a later date. Memorial gifts may be made to Wheaton College, Main Street, Norton, Mass. 02766-0930 or to the Chappaqua Library, 195 S. Greeley Ave., Chappaqua, N.Y. 10514.
