The Harold & Enes Hockett Fund was created by Enes Hockett, the older sister of Thelma Curtis. Grants from the fund will be recommended by family friend and financial advisor, Tom Uram. Both Mr. and Mrs. Hockett are now deceased.
Enes Odisio Hockett graduated from Avella and attended accounting school before relocating to Washington, D.C. to work at the Pentagon. It was there that she met Navy Lieutenant Commander Harold Hockett, who would one day be her husband. They married and lived happily together in Virginia for 35 years.
After their retirement, Enes and Harold moved to Southpointe so Enes and Thelma could spend more time together. “It was wonderful having her close by again after all those years,” says Thelma fondly. Enes passed away in September of 2010.
