To the family of Ellie, I'm so sorry for the families loss. I haven't seen the family in years but think of them often. Growing up I was her daughter Cathy's friend and I remember going to Ellie's house all the time as a kid she always treated us like one of her own. She had a heart of gold. And could always make me laugh. She was good friends with my aunt Nancy and my aunt always spoke highly of her. I can honestly say I was one lucky kid to have known Ellie. God bless her I'm sure she is having a cocktail up there with my aunt catching up on all the loved ones. My condolences and heart felt sympathies go out to her family and everyone's life that she touched over her life time she was a amazing lady. I'm sure she will be missed by all that knew her. Sincerely. DeDe .
