Ellie is survived by their three children (Jeff, Craig and Jill), six grandchildren (Lisa, Eric, Beth, Matt, Jazmin and Christopher), and four great grandchildren (Rylie Kate, Ada, Rhea and Kieren). A member of the philanthropic PEO sisterhood for more than 50 years, Ellie was the President of the Indiana State Chapter in 1983-84. She also served as a Girl Scout troop leader and Cub Scout den mother for many years.

  1. Dear P.E.O. Sister Ellie will truly be missed by all who had the honor of knowing her… You never simply knew Ellie, instead you had a RELATIONSHIP with her. She made sure of that with her warmth and understanding. Her relationships with my mom, Jean, and my aunt Katie, and of course with me, will always be treasured parts of my soul. What a blessing they all converged into Chpater WD at the end of their special lives – we were all the beneficiaries of it. These special ladies are with Chapter Eternal now, so their relationships continue! God bless them all – Love neverending. Wendi

  2. Dear Jeff (and family),

    Only being in your mom’s company maybe once, but hearing about her over the years, she sounded like an amazing person (so full of life). Thus, in reading her tribute, that just reiterates exactly the case. Treasure all of those moments and time you had together. You were truly blest to have her for so long. She is now with your dad in heaven and probably having a grand old time. Tom & I send our deepest condolences. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Please accept my most sincere condolences. All the good she did for many people will always be remembered and rewarded. Hebrews 6:10 reminds us that “God is not unrighteousness so as to forget your work and love you showed for his name..” The resurrection is a sure hope. John 5:28,29 reminds us of that. May the wonderful memories made together bring a smile and warm your heart. You are in my prayers.
