I'll always remember Ellen's smile and enthusiasm. My favorite memory is Ellen behind her bass and beside Bill on banjo, playing for the field school dancing the Virginia Reel. She truly will be missed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ellen at the Chamber of Commerce when she came to a meeting. Always smiling. I told her that Coach Kelso was my English teacher at James Blair. She was so pleasant and pretty. Condolences to Coach and family.

Miss Ellen was everything and more that this tribute to her reflects. How very, very, very, much she will be missed. Wherever she went and with whomever she interacted with, she left a huge bouquet of sunshine, happiness, and uplifting positivity. I will always remember her with that great and beaming smile and laugh. May a choir of angels sing her to her rest and my our Dear Lord and Savior touch her family and friends with His grace, comfort and peace. A friend.
