9/24/34 - 8/06/21 Mary Ellen (Killeen) Lund completed her legacy on August 6, 2021. She was 86 years old. We are thankful for the time to learn from and with her. She will be remembered and missed by many. Mom believed in keeping Rialto, CA clean and safe. She enjoyed her friends from quilting and from the Fontana Senior Center. Mom loved watching 60 minutes. Many of her conversations involved politics or finances and her beliefs in regards to them. Mom was a strong woman. She raised two daughters as a determined single mother. When others might have broken; she persevered with no help from family or the government. She met and married Edsel Lund and they had a son and a daughter. Together they completed a family of six. Mary Ellen was preceded in death by her parents, a baby brother, and daughter (Kathleen McDonald). She is survived by three children: Noreen Ewers, Paul (Susan) Lund, and Pam (Tim) Sutton; 13 grandchildren: Clarice Martin, Travis Ewers, Lauren Ewers, Jarrod McDonald, Alexandria Loser, Kristin Lund, Allie Hale, Madison SteinerLund, Jordyn SteinerLund, Cody Sutton, Caleb Sutton, Cameron Sutton, and Cooper Sutton. She was blessed with four great grandchildren: Delaney, Kobe, Aiden and Kennedy. Words cannot express my gratitude for Paul and Susan who actively, lovingly oversaw the care and needs for mom/Nana. We especially want to thank Mary Swanson and her team at Divine Care in Loma Linda who excellently cared for mom for the last two years. Inland Memorial is in charge of her care. My mom believed you should give flowers to someone when they are alive so they could enjoy them. If inclined, instead, donate to Lutheran Braille Workers, Yucaipa, Ca. or the Salvation Army.
