Ellie was born and grew up in New Bedford, MA. She was an only child. Her mother had a very difficult time during her delivery and her parents decided not to have any more children. After graduating from the New Bedford High School in 1955 she decided to become a nurse. She got her RN degree at The New England Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in Boston in 1958. At the same time she attended Boston University and received a Masters Degree there. Ellie was asked to teach at New England Baptist Hospital immediately after graduation and never actually did any nursing. She also lead a student Bible study at the school. She taught there until a year after getting married on 20 April 1968.
When the children were in Jr. High she volunteered in the office at the Brockton Christian School where the children attended. She continued there until her death. She ran the library and sometimes taught a few classes. Ellie was a friend of the students, librarian, substitute teacher, and doer of anything that needed done at Brockton Christian School and Bethel Christian Academy.
She actively worked in God's ministry affecting the lives of many at The Evangelical Congregational Church of Easton in the earlier years of marriage. Later at Christ Community Church of East Tauton, Ellie was a Bible study teacher, Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) leader, active in women's ministry, children's Sunday school, VBS, and helping people in ways most of us will never know.

Ellie's life on earth is complete
The Lord's handmaiden is with Him.
My grief is overshadowed by knowing
The joy the one I love now has.
As she left to be with Christ,
Her spirit delayed a few minutes
On that greatest of journeys,
To awaken her daughter saying,
"Honey, I have to go now."
