She enjoyed spending time at home, working in her garden and going out for dinner. She had an amazing attention to detail in everything she did and was a very thoughtful woman. She never forgot to send a card for a birthday or an anniversary.
Ellen was a very private person, but enjoyed spending time with her extended family. She loved her life with her husband, Don, and cherished their memories of life together.
