In Memoriam: Mary G. Enig

Mary G. Enig, PhD, and Sally Fallon Morell of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

One of our great’s, Mary G. Enig, has left us, and so it’s a sad day and a time to pause and give thanks for the enormous contribution provided by this doctor, along with Sally Fallon Morell, that has started the world on a whole new path. Rest in peace.

I would like to share the letter Sally Fallon Morell sent to Weston A. Price Foundation members:

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Mary Enig, PhD.

Mary was a founding board member of the Weston A Price Foundation and for several years a board member emeritus.

She was a driving force in the move to alert the public to the dangers of trans fatty acids, contributor to Nourishing Traditions, co-author of Eat Fat, Lose Fat, author of Trans Fatty Acids in the Food Supply and Know Your Fats, and a frequent contributor to the Wise Traditions “Know Your Fats” column.

Our 15th annual conference will be dedicated to her memory.

The funeral service will be held this Wednesday, September 10, at 1:00 PM at B’nai Israel Congregation (6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD 20852).  The interment will immediately follow at Mount Lebanon Cemetery (9500 Riggs Rd., Adelphi, MD 20783).
