Ellie was a wonderful mother. We were lucky to have her be part of our family. I'm glad we were able to have such a nice visit (and laughs) a few weeks ago.

Kevin, Terri, Jeff and Andy, I am so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a wonderful person, and I will remember her always smiling that great smile of hers, and her infectious laugh. I will always have fond memories of hanging at the house in Mattydale, jumping off the roof into the pool and Roy and Ellie being ok with that! Great people, wonderful family. Please accept my sincerest sympathies.

Dear Family;
Ellie was previously my mom’s roommate at Buckley Landing (My mom passed last year). My daughter and I became acquainted with Ellie during the visits with my mom. She was so friendly and I enjoyed our conversations as she spoke highly of her family. She was a beautiful soul and will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Denise & Lindsey Wallace & Buonocore Family
