Ellen was a kind person with a ready smile. Her lack of judgment was refreshing. I´ll miss her loving warmth at the Ethical Society. She inspired so many of us!

I have been a client of Ellen´s since 1982. Ellen saved my life. She was warm, caring, loving and sure had a way of turning the struggles of life into positives. We were to have lunch on November 21. She loved the baguette bread and butter and chocolate cookies from Bread Company. I miss and pray for her daily. Rest In Peace my living friend!

Ellen welcomed me into the Singer Senior Connections program with a warmth and intimacy that stemmed from our shared experiences of living as older single women after being widowed too soon. I will always treasure her insights and her caring relational gifts.

Ellen was first my therapist and then my friend for 30 years. She was a giver and helped me find tools to change my life, for that I will be forever grateful.

Ellen was Tracy's longtime therapist as well as a presenter at multiple Green Tree Lodge Recovery events through the Singer Institute when I volunteered there regularly back in the 1990's. I am sure that she had a very positive impact on many many lives and we are proud to know that we were among that group.

Ellen was an inspiring and amazing role model and a remarkable and dear friend. I learned so much from her through the years. I will dearly miss our Tuesday night Scrabble games, and forever hold those memories in my heart.
