Dixie, I am heartbroken to hear about Ellen’s passing. I have such great memories of her she could always make you laugh…A few months back I saw an old picture of me, Ellen, Lee and Jimmy Barnes covered in oil where we had been changing my transmission out. Of course Ellen started slinging the oil and the fight was on…
She will be missed.
Sorry for you loss.. will be keeping your family in my prayers..
Dixie. My prayers are with you and your family. Your mother touched a lot a lives. Much love and hugs Cilla
I am sorry for your loss. Haven’t seen Ellen in a number of years, we were in the same class at Boonshill May God walk with you and be by your side in the days to come.
So sorry to learn of your mom’s death. May sweet memories of times spent together give you comfort at this time. Give me a call sometime.
I will miss you woman me and you both were so hard headed but I still loved you will miss you my sister .
I was heartbroken to hear of Ellen’s death, and also heartbroken that we lost touch so many years ago. I had not seen her or heard from her in many years. She was a member of my graduating class and a good friend. She had a loving heart and was always ready to help anybody needing help. She was truly blessed with the gift of gab. She never stopped talking. She loved wild colored nail polish. We never knew what color to expect from day to day. Those are some of my fondest memories of her. Her death at 59 years old should be a reminder to us all that we need to have everything made right with the Lord as we know not when the hour of our own death may come. God bless the family.
GOD bless the FAMILY!! May HE give you PEACE at this sad time and the days ahead!!
