Ella was never blessed with children but she was a wonderful and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephew.
Her home was always welcoming and she enjoyed having visitors anytime. She could remember people and dates better than any of us. When she spoke you listened!
Ella moved from Louisiana to South Carolina in 2008. She lived there until her death on August 5, 2014.
Aunt Dee had a wonderful life and will truly be missed.
Much gratitude is given to the staff at The Cottages at Brushy Creek, Camellia Cottage for their kindness, patience and compassion shown to her. She could not have been in a better place.
Many thanks are extended to Gentiva Hospice for their great care in her final days.
