Private Condolence

My sincere condolences to you and your family, at this sad time. Ellen was an active member of the Eldorado Gold League, for many years, who's smile and comradery was infectious. I enjoyed many rounds of golf with Ellen and a more honest golfer you'll never meet. She was instinctively in-tuned to other people's feelings and made many friends while playing league golf.

I will miss her honesty and touches of humor.

Sending lots of love and sympathy from Alison and Nick to our cousins Amanda and Kent. Aunt Ellen was an important part of our lives, especially during our childhood before the move to Canada. She very kindly kept in touch, once our mum passed away, for which I was very grateful. We will miss her love and care.

Dear Amanda and Kent and family, Elle and I worked together at PCP and maintained a long-distance friendship for almost 40 years. I adored her and loved her beauty, kindness and generosity. I send love and hugs to you all in remembrance of a dear friend and amazing woman. Audrey Baker

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Ellen. Ellen was my neighbor when I lived in Aspen Springs. I still have the beautiful cards that she made me while I lived there she had such a talent. Ellen was an amazing lady and will truly be missed. I am sorry for your loss! Kim Broome
