Dear Aunt Ellie and Great Aunt Ellie to many nieces and nephews around the world.
Ellie was an accomplished artist and loved all kinds of music. She loved to sing, especially at church and with her sister and brothers. Ellie loved to cook and bake and was the most loving hostess at many gatherings in her home. One guest told her that he had never felt so welcomed into someone's home. As she said, "There's always room in the inn!"
Her faith in God was the foundation of her life. She was involved in many areas at her church over the years. Her friends from church were her closest friends throughout her adult life. She will be missed so much by all who knew and loved her.
Private family interment at St. John’s Cemetery, Oak Brook, IL.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Lakeshore Public TV (www.lakeshorepbs.org) and Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org) would be appreciated.
