Elizabeth Ernst Ell
May 19, 2011

Elizabeth "Betty" Ernst Ell, 90, formerly of Wilkes-Barre, died Thursday, May 19, 2011, at Star Hill Rest Home in Monroe Township, Pa. She was a devoted and much loved mother and grandmother. Born March 10, 1921, in Wilkes-Barre, she was a daughter of the late Dr. William G. and Isabel Wideman Ernst.

Betty attended Wilkes-Barre Business College and worked as a secretary for the federal government prior to marriage.

She enjoyed doll collecting and attending flea markets in her later years. She made many friends in those circles, as well as those of her church and various senior centers.

Betty was a member of the Parish of Saint Nicholas. Her faith and devotion to God was steadfast.

An infant daughter, Bernadette; sisters, Adele and Isabel; and a brother, William Ernst, preceded her in death.

She will be missed by her daughter Paula and her husband, Rick Klass, of Monroe Township; grandchildren, Jackie and Erick Klass; great-granddaughter, Lillie May Verrill; and nieces and nephews.

Celebration of Betty's Life will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday from McLaughlin's, Wilkes-Barre, with funeral Mass at noon in the Church of Saint Nicholas.

Interment will be in Oak Lawn Cemetery in Hanover Township.

Visitation will be held at McLaughlin's from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday.

Betty's family thanks the staff of Star Hill Rest Home for the compassion, dignity and respect they offered over the past 4 years, and the caregivers of Erwine's Home Health and Hospice for the excellent care and compassion Betty was given in her final moments.
