"Ella B" as she preferred to be called was well under 5 feet in height but her personality was as big as the sky. She was the life of the party.
Her cousin Jane Armstrong Healey relayed the following. "While we lived in Indiana, we made a trip to Denver to visit Aunt Maud. All six of us plus Ella B crammed in the car. Ella B always went everywhere with us. The car did not have air conditioning, of course. Our luggage was on the running board of the car.
When we went through Kansas, which went on and on and on, forever, my dad looked out and said our luggage was gone. We thought he was joking because he always made a lot of jokes. Well sure enough it was. And the rest of us didn't have too many clothes, just a few things but Ella B had wonderful wardrobe. She purchased some with her earnings and she sewed some for herself. So we all prayed Ella B would find her clothes. My dad drove back to the last town that we had passed. Nobody knew anything about the luggage so we put an ad in the paper. We drove even further back to the next town. We went to the newspaper office to place an ad about losing our luggage. The person, who had found the luggage, was also preparing to place an ad. So our luggage was saved."
