Used to take yearly summer vacations with Roy and eleanor every year when I was young to Hampton Beach, NH. Many times walking across the rocks at Rocky Bend from one end to the other, picking out shells, sea urchins, starfish, coming back to our cottage, cooking all the little shells and drying out our catch. The whole place smelled like seaweed. Eleanor and I spent every month for a few years travelling back and forth to Cleveland, OH where I'd go for surgery and appts and always manage to find time for fun at Seaworld, Cleveland zoo and rain forest, shopping and our monthly dinner in Little Italy. Eleanor and I and my mom, her sister n law spent many good years together, even saw phantom of the opera in Toronto together. She planted my first tree in my new home, we planted gardens together as a family, many picnics and family outings with eleanor, roy and their dogs. Many late night phone calls. You will be sadly missed

I met Aunt Ellie just over 8 years ago. Her half sister Jayne Hartman was my grandmother. Jayne never told us about Ellie and her sisters but we came across a letter Ellie had written my grandmother in past years. We found the letter after grandma died and we got in contact with Ellie. Our reunion was sweet and long over due. A big group of us traveled from Salt Lake City, Utah to Rochester to meet our aunties. Was so fun to catch up and get to know them all. We visited with them every year after that for the past 7 years. I will miss Aunt Ellie. I love he love of God and her sweet spirit. Until we meet again my lovely auntie. I love you, Laurie Walkenhorst
