Amanda G. Enzenauer 1977–2019 Morristown—Amanda Gwinn Enzenauer, 41, of Morristown, died Saturday, July 27, 2019 at District One Hospital in Faribault. She entered the world on December 16, 1977, and left too soon. When she was born, she joined her parents, Lester Enzenauer and Sandra (Gwinn) Enzenauer and her sister, Kari. From Owatonna, Amanda and her family lived in Austin, Minnesota, and Clear Lake, Iowa. Eventually, Amanda's family moved to Hawarden, Iowa. Even though Amanda dealt with negative people in her life, she always maintained a happy and positive attitude. After graduation from high school, Amanda graduated with her Associate Degree in Graphic Design from Iowa Lakes Community College. Eventually, her family returned to Minnesota in 2003, settling in Owatonna. After an education position, she returned to school earning a Bachelor's Degree in Educational Studies from Crown College. For more than five years, Amanda was a Jane of all trades at Kid's Korner. From teaching to working in the kitchen, her employers knew they had a trustworthy and loyal employee. There she made may friends and took part in many activities including dressing up for Halloween with a fellow teacher where they went as Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World. Amanda, being one never to slow down, also worked part time, including Lane Bryant and Walgreens. After working at Kid's Korner, Amanda decided to try something new and became employed with Hometown Credit Union eventually working in the Faribault branch. On Saturday, July 27th, Amanda collapsed at the bank and would be declared deceased at District One Hospital. Amanda is survived by her father, Lester; sister, Kari and aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. She is also survived by the family cats, especially the cantankerous, Midnight. Amanda was preceded in death by her mother, Sandra; maternal grandparents, Amos and Winnifred (Smith) Gwinn and paternal grandparents, Alfred and Marjorie (Bull) Enzenauer and aunts, uncles and cousins. Our family would like to thank the police officer in Faribault who took Amanda's call and the Owatonna police officers that came on Saturday to inform us about Amanda. Police chaplain Brent Carlson and his wife were especially kind in accompanying Kari to the hospital and informing her father about Amanda. Even though everyone who Amanda met and became friends with will miss her with all their hearts, nobody will truly understand the depth of the pain this loss has for her first friend, her sister, Kari. Even though it drove her up the wall, Amanda's phrase was: Everything will be alright. So, Kari will now try her best to make sure that EVERYTHING is alright. Visitation will be at Michaelson Funeral Home on Sunday from 2-5 PM and on Monday from 9:30-10:30 AM. Funeral services will be held August 5, 2019 at 10:30 AM at Michaelson Funeral Home in Owatonna with Pastor Doug Jones officiating. Interment will be in the Owatonna Memorial Gardens in Owatonna.
