For many years she had also worked as an election poll watcher. She served as Chairman for the Class of 1969 Reunion Committee, volunteered with the PTA and assisted with the Food Share Program.
Enrica enjoyed painting ceramics and was a talented seamstress; she found great satisfaction sewing blankets for family and friends.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank-you to the Davenport Fire Department Station # 5, Heartland Healthcare, Genesis West and Trinity Rock Island ICU.
