The world has lost one tough cookie. Eleanore Ann Prouty (formerly of Roswell, GA & Longwood FL), age 82, passed away on Friday, October 16, 2020, at her assisted living home in Stockbridge, GA.

Ellie was born in Cambridge, MA on December 2, 1937, the only child of Stanley James Bayko, and Sophie Ann Bayko (nee Dengeleski). She graduated from St. Mary of the Annunciation High School in Cambridge, MA in 1955.

Ellie was a fiercely independent lady. She relished a good deal, almost as much as a good natured disagreement. Garage sales were her forte. Ellie enjoyed being in the limelight and sharing a hearty laugh.

Her parenting style encouraged creativity, autonomy, and individuality. She was incredibly proud of each of her children in their successes, and especially loved her only grandchild, Mason.

Ellie’s most cherished time and treasured memories were the 58 years spent with the love of her life, her husband Jim. They were married on May 19, 1957. The two of them traveled often during the course of Jim’s business career, making fast friends with everyone they encountered.

In addition to her parents, Ellie was preceded in death by her son Jimmy Prouty, her husband James A. Prouty, and her daughter Deborah Young.

Ellie is survived by her daughter Pam Prouty (Alan Gordon); son Steve Prouty (Janice) & grandson, Mason Prouty; son-in-law John Young; and her beloved dog, Honey; as well as sister-in-law, Catherine Prouty, and a host of nieces and nephews.

Ellie was the incredibly fortunate recipient of endless unconditional love, kindness and compassion from an amazing army of loving extended family at Benton Village in Stockbridge, GA for the past five years of her 15+ year journey with the unrelentingly cruel disease of Alzheimer’s. The caring staff at Southern Grace Hospice helped ease Ellie through her last days of battle.

Cousin Eleanore was very important in my life. She would babysit for me. I had the biggest crush on her. To me she was the most beautiful girl in the world. Everything she did was the best. She was the one who crowned Mary at the May procession. Many years later I read the book of letters between my Mom and Dad during WWII, and Eleanore's name came up all the time. I think she was the girl child my Mom didn't have yet. Eleanore was full of life and joy. I was fortunate to be able to visit her a couple of times in Atlanta. She has always had a special place in my heart. I will miss her.

Ellie was one of my favorite cousins. We had so many wonderful times at our grandparent's home in Cambridge. I will always remember Ellie as one of the most vivacious and fun people at those gatherings. It was always great to be around her. We'll miss her a lot.
