Messages & Condolences
Ron, Trina, Amanda and Andrew,
I just heard, April 8th, that your Mom/Grandma passed away. I’m so sorry for your loss.
She was a sweet lady.
I got to know her the last several years at Medicalodge.
This last year has been so hard on families…
May she rest in peace.
I am glad the Lord to you when he did. You did not deserve to be in the home isolated from your loved ones any longer. You are reunited with Grandpa Chester.
This last year was so unfair to us all.
Im glad I got to see you for the first time in a year a few weeks ago.
Like I said then, Ill see you soon
It was as a honor to know Ellen and her grandson and granddaughter are her legacy. She will be very missed by all.
My deepest sympathy for all the family. Ellen unique in every way loving, kind, a joy to know. Loved her family so much. She made this world a better place for all who knew her. Ron, Amanda, Andrew so sorry for your loss.
Ronney, Your mom was a hoot to work with though I could tell she pulled no punches and told just what was on her mind. Working with her was fun and I enjoyed the brief interaction we had many years ago around the time you also worked at King.
Ronney so sorry to see where your mother has passed. Enjoyed working with her for many years at King Radio. Knew her for many years. You have great memories to cherish of your mother. Think of you and keeping you in my prayers. Marlene McCoy Bendon
