Ellen Joseph (née Henderson) died peacefully on August 28, 2017, at Citizens Rehabilitation Center in Frederick, Maryland at the age of 91. Ellen is survived by her daughters Pamela Joseph of Leesburg, Virginia, and Celia Joseph of Harwich, Massachusetts. She was preceded in death by her husband, Arnold Joseph, of Woodbine, Maryland, on September 25, 2007. Ellen was born on December 5, 1925, in Memphis, Tennessee, to Dr. Raymond Henderson and Ida Ryckman Henderson. She graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1947 with a degree in psychology. She met Arnold at Vanderbilt and they married in 1948. Arnold later attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, which prompted their move to Maryland in 1951. They lived in Maryland for the remainder of their lives, making Woodbine their home for over 50 years. Ellen was active in the Carroll County League of Women Voters, the Girl Scouts Board of Directors for Maryland, and Carroll County politics for many years. She was an accomplished painter, seamstress, and was extremely fond of mystery novels, Star Trek, and Nelson Eddy movies. Pamela and Celia will be hosting a remembrance for Ellen on September 17, 2017 at Morgan's American Grill (11717 Old National Pike, New Market, MD) from 1-3pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be given to the Dementia Society of America or the Frederick County ASPCA.
