We treasure the many happy memories we have of living next door to Ellie & Bernie. Great Christmas get-togethers with them and John & Anne Callahan. Then there were the great times sitting at the kitchen table with Ellie & Nancy when she visited. Please let us know if there will be a service. Unfortunately we just heard about Ellie's passing. Please accept our deepest sympathies. Ellie was a ver special lady.
