Ella Mae was one of the kindest, gentlest and sweetest-natured ladies I have had the privilege of meeting. She had an unforgettable sense of humour, too. I am honoured to have had the opportunity to travel with her on several occasions and I send you deepest sympathy for the loss of such a wonderful soul.
Mary, Billy and entire family: we were so saddened to hear of Ms. Ella Mae's death, but rejoice with you in her going home to be with the Lord. If we can do anything for you just let us know. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers!!!!
Just last Thursday morning my mother and I went by her house for a visit because Ella had asked us too. I took some beautiful pictures of Ella and my mother (Ann Garrett, co-workers at Crystal Oil) sitting out in her sun room sharing some laughs! Mother and I are grateful for having her in our lives and saddened to know she will no longer be on Oneonta Street. BTW, she gloated over her nieces as was her custom....
Dear Ella Mae, how much we enjoyed your presence in our life. Your friendship was a cherished gift.Jasmine M. Field
Our Dear Ella friend has earned her wings and flown away to Jesus and Heaven is today more sweeter and more heavenly because this precious treasure is there. Jasmine M. Field
How ironic that I thought of Ella Mae this past week! She was a hoot and a delight to be around. We travelled to Italy many years ago and she helped make the trip so enjoyable. My sympathies to her family and friends.
There was no sweeter spirit in this world than Ella Mae. She was important to so many friends and family and to The Muses who were able to count on her until the very end. She made deviled eggs for workers at the Sept. book bazaar and was adamant about getting back her nifty egg carrier so she could do it again. Gary dutifully returned it and they had a great visit about family. We will both miss her.
