Ellen had an illustrious career in the mortgage industry that spanned almost 40 years and thoroughly enjoyed her career right up to the very days before she passed. She also loved to read, crochet, sew, craft, watch Christmas movies, shop, and spend time with her family. Most of all, Ellen was known for her quick wit, infectious laugh, and her compassionate desire to care for everyone she met.
