A native of Clevedon, Somerset. Parents Herbert Smith and Edith King. She survived rheumatic fever as a young girl and later went to live with her aunt in Bristol to find employment.

Enid met my mother as an employee of the Supply Company, Whiteladies Road -- a large prestigious grocery shop which supplied the middle and upper classes -- and became a lifelong good friend of hers. She married on January 29, 1938 in Somerset, England. Afterwards, my mother recommended her husband, Charles, to her friend, Joe Watts, who worked at the Caterham Motor Company near London so he would be employed there as a skilled motor mechanic. Charles had never left his small hometown before and was appreciative of being able to work there. However, later he returned to Clevedon as he did not get on with Joe.

Enid adored writing letters and was a deeply religious person. Towards the end of her life, because the rheumatic fever as a girl had weakened her heart, she undertook an operation to place a pacemaker in her heart. Later, when this needed changing the doctors decided she was too old for another operation and she died shortly afterwards. During this period she quietly showed great courage. Even on the last day of her life she wrote a Christmas card to us which we kept as a precious memento.
