Ellen was such a great person. We had such fun visiting her for many years but when she was in Wellington and Maple View she loved the music so much and even danced with such a smile.

So very sorry to hear of Auntie Ellen’s passing. She was positively sweet as can be. I have an image in my head of her and her baby sister Agnes, my Beste, sipping coffee and eating sweets in heaven together. Praying for you all.
