Ellen M. Grubbs, age 49, passed away Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at Mt. Carmel East Hospital. Ellen was an energetic, smart, funny, caring, athletic, independent woman, but she died at the age of 49 after complications from an asthma attack. Ellen had asthma her whole life but that didn't stop her from being a champion swimmer, having two sweet, responsible kids and rescuing a slew of dogs. She loved water parks, Ohio State, country music and debating politics. She was the type not to let on that anything was wrong or complain. Argue, yes, complain, never. Defying doctors odds was her hobby. But every once in a while asthma would jump up and bite her, like it did on the night of January 31. Ellen worked at Alliance Data as a Senior Compliance Analyst. Survived by her husband, Russell L. Grubbs II; daughter, Caitlin M. Grubbs; son, Russell L. Grubbs III; mother, Mary Lou Vinzant; sisters, Carol (David Lyndsky) Vinzant of New York, NY, Mary Ann (Glenn) Fuller of Lake Zurich, IL, Karen (John) Asa of Arlington Heights, IL; brothers, Tom Vinzant of Kenosha, WI, Gary (Lorraine) Vinzant of Des Plaines, IL; mother-in-law. Esther N. Grubbs; sisters-in-law, Pat (John) Seymour, Pam (Bill) Tabor, Lisa (Bill) Rathburn; several nieces and nephews and their children; huge circle of friends and family around the country. Preceded in death by father Guy E. Vinzant, father-in-law Russell L. Grubbs. Russ kept a vigil at the hospital throughout her long coma. Rusty her dueling partner in debates.
