Born on July 7, 1953 to the late Henry and Verdie Mae Foreman Romero, Ellen was one of four girls. She was a kind, selfless, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Ellen had a passion for furniture restoration, bringing life and beauty back into old and broken things. She enjoyed spending time with her family, caring for her plants and flowers, listening to music, and most evenings she could be found watching Wheel of Fortune with loved ones. Those who had the pleasure to know and love Ellen will miss her truly and deeply.
She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Henry “Johnny” Tabor; children, Jo Ellen Curry (Aubrey “Booga”), Jill Turuy-Yup (Julio “Tuki”), and Adam Tabor (Amanda); sisters, Dianne Lopez (Kenneth), Cyndi LeBlanc (Penley), and Phyllis Romero; grandchildren, Abigail and Anabel Gutierrez, Taylor, Avery and Nathan Curry, and Avery and Autry Tabor; and great-grandchildren, Wyatt and Landrie.
