Ellie was such a sweet lady! We met many years ago at the New Lenox Park District when I worked for Special Rec; and she bowled in the senior league at Country Lanes here in New Lenox with Bud. She loved to bowl and, when you consider her age, was pretty darn good! She got confused lately but everybody loved her and helped. She will be missed by many. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
