My sincerest condolences to the family.
I have so many fond memories of Aunt Ella.
I will forever treasure the week she spent with myself and my family a number of years back. We cried, we laughed and reminisced of the years that you all would visit and the men would pheasant hunt.
May Aunt Ella rest in peace.

Ella, was mom to me and always will be. I loved her dearly and I will miss her just as I miss my mom. Her and I laughed together cried together and even gossiped together must have that to. Mom was a grand lady and had a heart of gold. She was sensitive caring and a very loving. She loved her kids and grandchildren she just loved everyone. The last time we spoke was three weeks ago on a Sunday we talked for a hour and a half and I will forever remember our last words together I love you always mom. Mom I will forever miss our talk's and your kind heart. Forever in my heart mom. Always your daughter in law, Marcia.
