Ellen passed away in 1918 and is buried at William Ganong Cemetery in Westland, Michigan. Buried with her in the Frederick Sims Family Plot are husband Fred and daughters Anna and Jessie.

Her children Janet, John and Frederick, who all died very young are likely buried in the same family plot, however no official record of their burial has been located.
