Mona Lee Enfield Coffield


Mona Lee Enfield Coffield passed away peacefully on June 7, 2017, in the presence of her family. The cause of death was heart failure. Mona also lived bravely and graciously with Alzheimer’s Disease for several years. Born and christened Mona Lee Munch on August 4, 1932 in Phoenix, Arizona, Mona graduated from the University of Arizona. After college, she struck out for San Francisco and worked for the Institute of International Education and Jackson and Lewis Advertising before her marriage in 1957 to Robert N. Enfield and subsequent move to Roswell, New Mexico. In 1972, she and her family moved to Santa Fe. In May 1992, Mona married former Roswell resident Conrad E. Coffield.
Mona’s kindness and generosity knew few bounds. She embraced life, loved ones, friends, and community with zest, grace, compassion, and fortitude. She was a founding board member of orchestras in Roswell and Santa Fe and relished music and dancing throughout her life. She valued education and was a lifelong supporter and former board chair of Santa Fe Prep. She anonymously provided scholarships and tuition assistance to many young Santa Feans so they could attend high school, college and graduate school. Mona also loved architecture and interior design and returned to work in the 1980s with her own business, Enfield Interiors. With Conrad, Mona designed and built Casa Mariposa in Sayulita, Mexico, which they enjoyed for many years and shared so generously with family and friends. It was the site of many family weddings and lively celebrations.
Survivors include husband Conrad; children Lisa Enfield (Paul), Eric Enfield (Kelly Sue), and Stuart Enfield; grandchildren Ariel Sklar (Simon) and great grandchild-to-be, Ethan Sklar, Tim Enfield, Frances Enfield and Isis Enfield; siblings Elizabeth Stephenson, Judy Blaise and Joe Munch (Shawn) and their families; Conrad’s children and their families, Conrad Coffield, Jr., Michael Coffield (Causey), Megan Lyon (Frank), and Edward Coffield; and sister-in-law Mollie (Enfield) Seymour and family.
Mona was preceded in death by her parents, Avanell Munch and Phil Munch, brother Peter Munch, sister and brother-in-law Phyllis and Stan Grimes, stepson Philip Coffield, nephew Quincy Munch, niece Susan (Seymour) Adams, nephew Mike Seymour, former husband and father of her children Robert N. Enfield, and mother-in-law Lucie (Enfield) Yeaman.
The family wishes to give special and heartfelt thanks to each and every caregiver at Sierra Vista, Mona’s home for the past two years, and to special caregiver Helena Staroyannis. Their loving care and devotion greatly eased the burdens and challenges of living with memory loss and allowed Mona a peaceful passing, as did the brief but compassionate services of Legacy Hospice.
A memorial in celebration of Mona’s life will be held on Saturday, July 15 at 1 p.m. at the Rivera Chapel of Light, 417 East Rodeo Road, Santa Fe, NM.
