Ellie was born on December 2, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois. She married Theodore Soltis in 1947 and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1969.
Ellie was known for her green thumb, and never met a plant she didn’t think she could grow! She was also an excellent cook and never met a recipe she didn’t think she could improve on!
Ellie is survived by her daughter, Jill Flynn of Chandler, Arizona, and her son, Theodore Soltis, Jr. of Riegelsville, Pennsylvania. She has three granddaughters, Michele, Jessica, and Alexandra, and three great-grandchildren, Drake, Annabelle, and Hunter.
