Enid C. Grauer Obituary – The Detroit Free Press

Enid C. Grauer (née Lappin), of Huntington Woods and Novi, Michigan, died July 27, 2022. Born March 1, 1940 and raised in Detroit, she graduated from Mumford High School and the University of Michigan, where she majored in history and French. After her marriage to Rick, she taught French to 4th and 5th graders in suburban Washington, D.C. for several years, then returned to Huntington Woods, MI with Rick to raise three children. When the youngest started kindergarten, she resumed her formal education, earning a master’s degree in social work (community organizing) from Wayne State University. She then served as major gifts manager for many years, first for Henry Ford Hospital and later for the University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. Enid’s personality, communication skills and persuasiveness have enabled her to develop cordial relationships with potential donors, both individuals and foundations. Finding and attracting the interest of potential donors for worthwhile projects has given Enid great satisfaction. Enid enjoyed nature, adventure travel, gardening, cooking, reading, and listening to classical music. She is survived by her husband Rick; his daughter Tresa (Avi), his son David (Carolyn) and his daughter Diane (Danny), as well as six grandchildren and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Funeral service at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 31, 2022 at the Ira Kaufman Chapel. Interment at Clover Hill Park Cemetery. The family kindly requests that masks be worn by all who attend the funeral.
