Not sure what to say?

A gracious lady, who always spoke kind, thoughtful words to me each time I came to the Art Barn for a visit.
I will miss her friendly smile.
To Ella's family, and co-workers, I offer my sympathy at this time of grief.
Dear Ella, be now at peace.

I will miss you as you always greeted me when I came into the Art Council to bring in the paper work from the mailings. I enjoyed our talks and eating all your CANDY that you always had on your desk. I will miss your smile. A Friend Always, Joyce

Ella, a group of like-minded friends and I were Aves. neighborhood activists when there were very few of us. Together we down-zoned, preserved and recreated the Avenue's Community Council. No matter how long we went without seeing each other or talking, we were life-time friends because we had fought and won an important victory which has had lasting consequences for the entire city. Ella will be deeply missed but always remembered.

To Ella Sues Family,
My mom (Elvira Adair) told me of Ella Sues return to heaven. I am sad for your loss but rejoice with her in her return to God and family who have been beyond the veil waiting. She is a remarkable person. I too, along with many others, have fond memories of visits to her home when I was young. I remember talking with my mom of what a wonderful, caring, generous person she is.
I have a poem I would like to share with all of you who have been touched by Ella Sues...

I met the stylish, intelligent, funny, intriguing Ella when we took the bus together, down from the Avenues, over 25 years ago. She invited me to a party at her home, and I was hooked! A kinder, lovelier person there could never be. I will carry her memory with me always.

My family and I loved Ella from the minute we met her at Rowland Hall. My daughter Carly was sure she was the principal when she was in the 2nd grade, now 29. Ella would always let her break the rules and call me during class time to talk me into picking her and Matt up or go to lunch. I will never forget that first time in the hall at Rowland Hall when she introduced herself as the Band Aid Lady as Carly must have called her, and her smile and soul just so impressed me instantly. ...

It has been almost 20 years since I have seen Ella, but her kind, welcoming and contagious love for life is what immediately came to mind when I read about her passing. I knew her from Rowland Hall back in 1990 and in the short time we were acquainted came to think of her office as a little nook of fun and a breath of fresh air. Since Ella's passing, a bright, bright light has left the planet. I know she will be sorely missed, but also remembered with big smiles. Blessings to all her...

I met Ella only two years ago in our condo complex. She was always friendly, thoughtful, considerate, and a delightful soul to run into! She immediately welcomed me to our building and was always excited with and for me as anything exciting happened in my life. She will be very missed and her absence will be noticeable.

I lived in the same building as Ella and she was always the friendliest person when I'd bump into her. I remember the first time I met her and mentioned I was from Chicago. Months later, I saw her and she eagerly asked if I had gone to IL for the holidays -- it was a small thing, but it felt nice to have someone remember such a small detail. She always seemed happy -- I saw her a few
weeks ago and we talked about the Utes, and her face just lit up. She was a wonderful person and I will...
