Upon graduating, she attended Bacone and obtained her RN degree. She worked as the instructor at ICTC for the LPN program, and was a dedicated instructor to her students. She was the proud mother of three sons, Edward Ryan, Bradley Daniel, and Scott Wyatt Cameron. She was so proud of all of their accomplishments and was their biggest supporter. She was blessed with two granddaughters, JoAnna and Samantha. The most important part of Ella life was her ability to care for others far more than she ever did herself.
