Ellen & Marshall were huge assets to St. Joseph Church. She loved all the kids she had in her kindergarten class thru the years. Great memories of blessed God Parents. Rest in Peace with Marshall. My prayers for their family.

Because we must laugh and because she will always have the final say . . .
We were ready to leave the gravesite and Sydney needed to be picked up and carried to the car. Her wheelchair was being moved as well. Cody, my nephew, always the gentleman, and so strong bent down to pick her up. It was silent as the services had concluded but my family kept hanging around crying.

We heard a loud rip and wasn't sure what it was. He loudly said, " I ripped my pants." He didn't miss a beat and carried her like a princess to the car. We all cracked up laughing. It was perfect.
It was as if Mom was saying, carrying on and laugh! I am convinced she orchestrated this! It brought relief. And, she would have added, "Thank God he had underwear on." She would be proud it was Kentucky Blue. Thank you, my sweet Cody, the oldest grandson, and making sure we could leave the site with laughter.
Thanks, Mom we needed it!

Mrs. Jaggers taught me and my daughter at St. Joseph Preschool.
I took my grandchild to her service and she drew this for the family.

She said Miss Debbi looks sad. My daughter said, "Mrs. Jaggers would say turn that frown upside down".
So my granddaughter drew this for the family to turn their frown upside down. Wow! Her lessons live on.

Nana,
I will miss coming over and letting our dogs play together.
Her curlers in her hair were the best. She would roll her hair on Saturday night for Sunday mass. I stopped by to show her my car and there she came with the curlers. Oh Nana!

Love your granddaughter,
Emily

There are far too many! However, the biggest are her love, warmth, and "wicked" sense of humor.

Our daughter, Kim, and son, Mark, attended St. Joseph School and Church. Mark was in kindergarten with Ellen and in afterschool daycare. We were thankful that Ellen helped take care of our son and daughter and was so nice to both of them. Ellen has been our neighbor for over 40 years we could not have asked for a better one.
We will all miss her!
Love,
The Vince Family

To the Jaggers Family,
My youngest daughter, Amanda, went to St. Joe's preschool 21 years ago or so. She would cry every time I left her. Ellen would always tell me that it was alright and reassured me that she was stopped crying when I left. She is my neighbor and whenever she saw me or my husband she always had a smile and a hello. She was a wonderful lady and we will dearly miss her.
Remember all the good times you had with her and keep her dear to your heart.
God Bless,
Mark and Laura
