For those of you who knew Liane Enkelis, I am sorry to announce that her husband died suddenly over the weekend. He was 64.
No cause of death has been announced.
Liane Enkelis started our photojournalism program on campus and taught for us for four years. Her former students have won numerous awards at our Journalism Association of Community Colleges conferences and some of them are now working professionally as photojournalists.
El Vaquero still benefits greatly from the training she provided.
Liane’s husband, Richard, was an attorney who gave up his practice in Palo Alto six years ago so that he and Liane could move to Pasadena to be closer to her ailing father. He continued in private practice locally up until his death.
There will be a service at Mount Sinai Memorial Cemetery Hollywood Hills, 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 13.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the National Hillel Foundation would be appreciated. This is a Jewish organization on college campuses world-wide, which sponsors activities for Jewish students. Liane and Richard met at a social event held by Hillel.
