She led her family by example and instilled the values of commitment to her family and hard work to her children, friends, and all those she touched. She was detail oriented and completed tasks to perfection. Ellie was incredibly proud of her children, particularly for the loving and devoted adults and parents they have become. She absolutely adored her cats. Ellie lived for family gatherings and was famous for always bringing her vegetable relish tray complete with large black olives. She will be remembered for her warm smile and great laugh. Ellie was born on August 1, 1937, in San Diego, California and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ellie graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1955. Ellie was proud to be a Nittany Lion and alumnus of Penn State University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Education in 1959. Ellie changed the lives of many children as a teacher in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jefferson City, Tennessee, Morristown, Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee and Hudson, Ohio. The family plans to have a Celebration of Life for Ellie in the future, after her husband Charles passes, in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania where they will be laid to rest together.
