Tami Enkers, 58, Moorhead, MN, passed away on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, surrounded by her loving family, at Sanford Health Palliative Care.
Tamara Sue Lobitz was born on April 27, 1959, in Moorhead, MN, to Fred and Beulah (Huesmann) Lobitz. The youngest of six children, she grew up in Sabin, MN, and graduated from Moorhead High School in 1977. From there she attended Moorhead Technical College and soon after, she met the love of her life Jeff Enkers. They were united in marriage on April 19, 1985 at First United Methodist Church in Breckenridge, MN. They made their home in Moorhead, where they raised two wonderful children. She spent the last fifteen years as the manager of Marcy's Kitchen in the Fercho Y.M.C.A., and according to many of her co-workers, her chili was beyond compare. Tami was very creative and in her younger years, impressed many with her painting skills.
She loved music and enjoyed singing, which she was very good at. Her love of music led to her having a karaoke machine in her living room, which has created many great memories. She could entertain and amaze anyone with her juggling skills, juggling with eggs was her favorite (only breaking a few along the way). She was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan and enjoyed going on family trips and also spending time in her backyard with family and friends. Tami was so loved and will be missed by many.
She is survived by her husband and best friend, Jeff Enkers, Moorhead; son Kyle (Fiance' Caitryn Cummings Pas) Enkers, Moorhead; daughter Tessa Enkers, Moorhead; siblings Michael (Jolene) Lobitz, Avon, MN, Patrick (Brenda) Lobitz, Fargo, ND, Timothy (Jane) Lobitz, Moorhead, and Becky (Rod) Buth, Moorhead, MN; many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her sister Sandra, whom we're sure welcomed her into Heaven with open arms.
