Growing up on the Eastern Shore, Ellen was the oldest of 10 children. With her parents and siblings, they were referred to as the "Dozen K". Ellen and Elmo met at a young age and became childhood sweethearts. They met while their parents were involved with the construction of Roger Street Church. Family and God were of the upmost importance to both sides of the family. Shortly after their marriage, they started a family and were blessed with 9 children. While the kids grew up, Ellen was known for her cooking skills and especially her yellow chicken and dumplings. Even into her later years, she helped to care for her many grandchildren. Ellen and Elmo were both active in many churches throughout their years together and shared their ministry through their love of singing.

Over the years, Ellen helped to open L & F Sub Shop and spent many years in the food industry. She ended her career in food service with the Wicomico County Board of Education. She also served as a geriatric nursing assistant at Salisbury Nursing Home caring for residents.
