Twila married Avery Enget on Aug. 2, 1946, at the Niobe Baptist Church. They lived in Powers Lake for five years. While in Powers Lake their three children were born, LeeNae, Patricia and Dwight. In 1951 they moved to Kenmare. She was employed at the Kenmare Hospital for two years. In 1962, she started working for J.C.

Twila then moved to the Baptist Home Assisted Living in Kenmare and later to the Kenmare Community Hospital.
Twila was a member of the Kenmare First Baptist Church, Immanuel Baptist Church of Minot and Bethel Baptist Church of Powers Lake. Her strong faith led her to being very active in the church as pianist, Sunday school teacher, youth leader and the ladies circle. When she was able, she enjoyed having flowers inside and outdoors, baking brown bread, reading, ceramics and handiwork. Her family was very important to her. She always played an important role in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be truly missed.
