  1. I have known Ellie for close to 40 years. She was one of the most real people I have ever met. I am honored to have known her. She touched my life with her big heart and loving soul. Whatever needed to be done, she just put on her barn boots and got it done. She would help anyone, because “that’s how I was raised.” She truly knew how to celebrate this thing we call life. When she entered a room, everyone in it was suddenly cheered up. God, I am gonna miss her.

  2. So Sorry for your loss. My condolences to Her Family , May She Find A Place of Peace and Light. REST in Peace! Ellie! Al Lewis

  3. I have known Ellie since the 4th grade, which is probably 35+years. I liked her immediately. We grew up together, had many of the same friends. She was real, but she was also accepting of others and she had a great sense of humor, without being mean. She was a friend to me when i really needed one. I will never forget her, and i will always love her like a sister. I really wanted to be at the service but i just couldnt get out of work. I think she would forgive me for that. I want to express my condolences to her family and friends. As i expressed earlier today, she left a gap that can never be filled. Rest well my friend, i hope we meet again.
