Ellen’s family would like to give great thanks to Harbor Light Hospice, her nurse, George, her CNA, Brittney and Chaplin Glenn who provided such wonderful care to her as well as her family.
Also, the family would like to thank her grandchildren, Zachary, Karyn and Evan, who provided loving care during her final days administering comfort, support and much love. But most of all to Karyn Weddle for her witty banter and giving her “some sugar” every day. She was so proud of you all and was grateful for making her transition easier. Thank you to you all.
In lieu of flowers, she would like donations to be made to St. Jude’s Hospital in her name.
