The family moved from the Kalamazoo, Michigan area in 1972 to Charlotte, North Carolina, and later to Whiteville NC. In 1998, she moved to Anderson, SC to be closer to her daughter and family.

To Dan, Sandy and Families:

I was so sorry to read of your Mom's passing. Ellen was such a sweet and quite person, even when we played golf here in the Friday Night Couples League at Crestview Golf Course in Cooper, Michigan. She never seemed to get upset, if she hit a bad shot. Fun times with alot of good memories.

Cherish all the wonderful memories all of you have with her. My many thoughts are with you!!
