Ellie's early life was spent in Syracuse, N.Y. Ellie and Don created many friendships and memories at Bristol Harbour. While raising her daughters she took great joy in assisting families in her role as a real estate agent. A devout Catholic, Ellie attended daily Mass and found great happiness in the "Lunch Bunch" from her catholic community. She enjoyed gardening, decorating, sewing, traveling and spending time with her beloved kids, grandchildren and large Irish family. For the past two years, Ellie was a resident at the Friendly Home.
She received the most incredible care from the entire staff. A very special thank you to the gang on Porter South. We will always be grateful for the love and tenderness you showed our special mom.
