Caring for, enjoying and laughing with her family and friends were most important to Ellen. P-Ma devoted herself to her four grandchildren, Reese, Chase, Blake and Logan and will be greatly missed but lovingly remembered by them always. Family will receive friends on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 2-4pm and from 7-9pm at Higgins Funeral Home in New City, NY. Religious services will be held at 8:30pm on Wednesday at the funeral home.
