The full impact of Mary Ellen's life will not be known this side of heaven. She gave so unselfishly of herself to others. One of those ways was through Boy Scouting, both locally and nationally. Many children, youth and families have been impacted eternally because Mary Ellen invested herself in a Scouting ministry. Both personally and on behalf of the Association of Baptists for Scouting, I want to express our deepest sympathy to the family and our profound gratitude for the life and ministry of Mary Ellen. We will miss her so! At the same time, we know she rests in the arms of her loving Lord from whom she hears "well done thy good and faithful servant."
