Ellen M. Cupp Obituary
Ellen Mae Cupp (nee Weedmark) passed away on March 31, 2018, aged 93, after enjoying a full life and a wonderful marriage with her beloved husband Cal, who predeceased her last year. Ellen was born September 9th, 1924 in Port Colborne, Ontario. She graduated from the School for Nurses, Hospital for Sick Children in 1946, and while working as a nurse in Port Colborne, she met Calvin Cupp, who had returned from serving overseas during the war. Cal and Ellen were married in 1949, beginning a wonderful partnership of love, friendship and devotion that would last more than sixty-five years. An adoring mother who loved babies (especially her grandchildren), Ellen never lost her nurses heart and instincts: she was strong and independent, intelligent and highly organized, and, in partnership with Cal, she ran the household with a calm, quiet efficiency. She had a wonderful, mischievous smile that projected wit, empathy, and warmth. She was a sympathetic listener and many turned to her with their problems. Ellens volunteer activities ranged from leading Brownie troops, to chairing the board of the Machar Home (Kingston, Ontario), to serving as a Deacon of her church, as well as volunteer support for many of her childrens activities. She enjoyed playing bridge, as well as gardening and needlework of all kinds. She especially loved her travels around the world with Cal, and also the many driving and camping expeditions they took with their children. Ellen is survived and will be profoundly missed by her loving family: her four children Leanne, Gillian, Jane Tisdale (of Wellesley), and David (always her favorite son); and her three grandchildren, Christa, Lauren and Ellen. A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 10AM in the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church, 207 Washington Street, Wellesley Hills. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made a , or to: SickKids Foundation, 525 University Ave. Suite 835, Toronto, ON, M5G 2L3. For online guestbook please visit www.BurkeFamily FuneralHomes.com.
