Ellen Rae Halcomb

February 22, 1944April 3, 2018

Ellen Rae Halcomb, 74, left this earth to be with the Lord on April 3rd, 2018, and will be greatly missed by both friends and family. In life, she made sure that those she loved were always taken care of, nourishing and emboldening the people around her. She truly embodied the stereotype of the Southern Grandmother who refused to let anyone leave the table without second and third helpings.

Born and raised in Ft Payne, Alabama, she spent the last 49 years of her life in Winter Garden, FL where she brought up her family with former husband William McVay. Together they raised four children including one son, Terry McVay (deceased), and three daughters: Kathy Creel (deceased), Deloris Jones, and Vickie Cheney. Eventually, William and Ellen decided to go their separate ways pursuing separate lives. Later in life, Ellen found a new person to share her life with, and married Robert Halcomb. She leaves behind a multitude of family members including her two surviving daughters (Deloris and Vickie), eleven grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

Mom these last two weeks without you have been aweful..I find myself going to call you many times a day, I miss your voice,your laughter,and all your wonderful words of wisdom..How much I wanted you to stay with us,but I know that you fought as long as you could..I thank God for all the many blessing he gave us, and for all the wonderful time we had with you... I am my mother's daughter,,And so very very proud to be.... I know I will never get over losing you,, but this overwhelming pain I feel in my heart,and mind, and. Body sometimes consumes me... I LOVE you so much, and miss you every day..

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again. I love you grandma

Ellen was a true friend and my sister in the Lord. She always went out of her way to be good to those around her. She spent many hours cooking at my mom's house while they prepared for church potlucks. My mom valued the time they spent together, as my mom was a widow for many years. Ellen had a special heart for people. She loved people with Christ's love. I will always remember the many conversations her and I had as co-workers as we shared a daily ride to work. The memories we shared will always stay with me, and I know my mom feels the same way as she thinks on the many hours she spent with such a special lady. She kept her family and God first in her life. I'm content to know you are now with the Lord.

so many memories that are there from when we were young. Sissy as we called her then always had a smile and a kind word. Have missed a lot of years as life took over. but am so grateful for the re connection in the last few years. loved talking to her. she had so many memories to share of our family. Praying for the peace and comfort that only GOD can give. I am here if you ever want to talk and have a willing ear to listen.
LOVE all of you guys. Judy
