Our mom might be best remembered by those who knew her well for her friendly nature, sense of humor, kindness, generosity, competitiveness and playing by the rules....in under 4 hours.
During her life, she went to great lengths to pass these traits on to her children and grandchildren for which we are all forever grateful.
Our family would like to thank Fran, Katie, Eileen, Mary and all of her friends at North Hill for the care, love and kindness shown to our mom.
Due to Covid restrictions, a celebration of Ellie's life will be held in the spring of 2022 at St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Wellesley.
