I met Mrs Ellen at the butcher shop and we became very close. She was diagnosed the same time my husband was and we would always hug and share our stories. She was one of those customers that everyone loved. We shared many a laugh and heartaches and I will so very deeply miss my friend. Thoughts, hugs and prayers to her family during this very difficult time. She will forever be remembered.

Ellen was a beloved childhood friend, classmate and faithful attendee at our '66 Girls luncheons. She took life in stride through the ups and downs, put her best foot forward and was devoted to her family, friends and faith. I especially loved her hugs as Ellen always made you feel like she was happy to see you. She wanted to hear more about you and talk less about herself. Truly a kindhearted person, memories of Ellen will be forever cherished. I'm the lucky one for having you as my friend.

Although we are sad to see her go, I'm thankful she's no longer in pain. Ellen was at our home a lot when she was growing up. Hebron kids were close as children and the friendships we made were never forgotten as we grew older. Our roots are deep and our memories will last forever. May God bless each of you as you grieve your loved one, I loved her also but we have MANY fond memories that death can't take from us. Treasure each one.
