Ellen, I wish I had shared with you how much I appreciated your integrity, skill and knowledge in administering the city's Retirement Funds. I wish I had expressed how much I admired and respected the tenacity in which you carried out your duties. I wish I had shared this while you were able to hear and appreciate it. Hopefully your family will be comforted in knowing how many people respected, admired and relied on your expertise. Rest In Peace Dear Ellen. Rest in Peace.
Sorry to hear about the loss of a dear friend that I have known for a long time. Even though our paths haven't crossed in a few years, she left a lasting impression. Always quick to laugh. Loved her stories! She certainly left this earth way too soon! Prayers to her loved ones.
Ellen's sense of humor and her dedication to her work at the City - that's what I will remember. May God bless her family and friends at this time.
Ellen was my buddy through Jr. High at Northeast. We had lots of fun adventures, cracking up at the early days of Seseme Street after school. She was into gardening in those days too, only in different ways...that's between me and Ellen though! It may have involved a term for ratcoons..... Hugs to all her family friends, and especially the love of her life. Thinking of Ellen today,and always Sally Sanders
Ellen was a true professional. Sincere condolences to her immediate family. Ellen's extended family...Pontiac's retirees, will truly miss her
Ellen was a good friend and coworker during all the years I worked at the City of Pontiac. I miss her bluntness and honesty. Most of all I missed her sense of humor. Rest well Ellen, you meant so much to so many.
Truly a Friend from the first day I arrived at the City of Pontiac. I will always remember the chats and laughs. She will be missed.
I had the honor of working with Ellen at the City of Pontiac. I can't count how many times I went to her office to vent on a daily basis about something that was going on. She always made me laugh and assured me that everything was going to be ok. Although we lost contact throughout these last couple of years, she has never left my thoughts. I am so sorry for your loss.
It was a sunny day many years ago when a woman wandered up my driveway to peruse what was on offer at my garage sale. She found a 60s-modern hanging light and was delighted; the style was one of her passions. As it happened, she was looking for a home in our neighborhood--and I promptly told her that the house next door would be on the market soon, pointing my thumb over my shoulder. "Really?" She eyeballed it and grinned. And thus began my acquaintance with my new neighbor and friend. Her passions, I learned, were many, but the list was topped by Cameron, her quilting and designing, her cats, her friends and her work protecting Pontiac's retirees. I still value the meticulously hand-made holiday cards that arrived every year at Christmas.
It was a pleasure and an honor to know you, Ellen. You earned my highest respect for your honesty, decency and fierce defense of what was right, often at your own expense. May you rest in peace after leaving us far too soon.
My deepest sympathy to Ellen's friends and family. She treated City of Pontiac retirees with respect and kindness. We will miss her.
Ellen will be sorely missed from the Retirement Office. She was a truly blessing to our City of Pontiac family. She was a wonderful person to know and was very diligent in her duties, taking care of us city retirees. I'll miss seeing her, her laugh and her smile. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
