Ronald F. Ellenberg
In Loving Memory
Ronald Francis Ellenberg was born on September 20th, 1936 in Juneau, AK and finished his journey on January 27th, 2013 in Enumclaw, WA after a brave, courageous fight to live. He was surrounded with the love and devotion of his family at home. Ron is survived by his beloved wife Sharon Ridalls Ellenberg, his four devoted children, Edward Ellenberg, Jeanne Ellenberg [Riley], Brenda Ellenberg & Cindy [Ellenberg] Nelson, & their mom Barbara Henry [Ellenberg], son-in-law Jeff Nelson, daughter-in-law Kim Ellenberg, stepdaughters & sons-in-law Laurie & Jeff Strickland, Kelly Fischer, & Kandy & Mike Birdwell. He is also forever remembered by all his loving grandchildren, Kylee & Jake Schurmann, Amy Ellenberg, Bailey & Ashlie & Shaeli Nelson, Krystal & Jason & Lindsey Strickland, & Joshua Birdwell. Ron was preceded in death by his good friend James Riley, & brother-in-law Bill Ridalls.
Ron "retired" after 41 years with Boeing, working on every plane from the B-52's to the 777's. True to form though, he kept himself busy with home renovation jobs right up to last fall 2012. He was a hardworking man who provided well for his family and believed in doing something right the first time. Ron will be missed by his many extended family and friends as much for his cantankerous ways as for his proud, true-blue, sentimental heart, and his intelligent, industrious mind. We will love him always.
