ELLIS, Nellie Mary (nee Waddington) May 28, 1932 - August 12, 2017 Peacefully, after a brave fight to the very end, passed at Centenary Hospital on Saturday, August 12th. Beloved wife of the late Robert Ellis. Deeply missed by her children Ron (Chris), Lori, Carol (Norm), Johanne and Donna. Loving Nana to Glenn, John, Emily, Jessica, Rachel, Connor, Larry, Jason and Susan. Great-grandmother to Dalton, Chase and Natalie. Loving sister to Evelyn and her siblings who have passed before her (Mabel, Hazel, John and Harold). Missed deeply by her 9 a.m. Coffee Club and her 5 o'clock Wine Club who helped to care for her until the end – Tom, Elaine, and Joanne. We love you Mom/Nana/Nellie, we are comforted in knowing that the hole in our hearts today will one day be flooded with the wonderful memories of the strong, independent, beautiful person you were to all of us. As per Nellie's wishes, a private service will be held for immediate family only.
