So sorry for your lost. She was an Angel here on earth. She meant the world to my mom, Mildred. When my dad passed Ellen was right there guiding her through every step. They would set for hours talking about nothing and laugh about talking about nothing. God has received another ANGEL to watch over you guys. She can spread her wings and fly over the highest mountain. Peaceful thoughts as you go through these trying times.Love Cookie and Mildred

Ellen was a wonderful lady, kind,supportive, caring...She was one of the strongest parent supporters of Reagan Jr High. At the closing of the school in May, 1977, Reagan had shrunk from a thousand students in1960 to 325. But, Ellen was determined to have a program equal to the other four. Her daughter, Carol, was a real delightful young lady much like her mother.
Carol, I know that you will miss her but some of the consolation is that your Mom was a great person who will never be forgotten.
