Funeral services for Ellen A. Kallio, 80, of Cook, formerly of Orr, will be at 1p.m., Monday at Trinity Luteran Church in Cook, The Rev. Marcus Hess will officate.

She died Friday, Sept. 12, 1997, at the Cook Nursing Home after a six-month courageous battle with cancer.

She was born August 6, 1917, to Victor and Elizabeth (Aho) Paavola in Gheen, the eighth of 11 children. When she was 18, she moved to Chisholm to work at Kallio's Dairy. There she met and fell in love with Tony Kallio, and they were married May 27, 1936, in Chisholm. In 1937 a daughter, Beverly, was born, followed by sons Dick in 1940 and Darrell in 1941. In 1945 the couple purchased the Linden Grove Store and operated it until the 1970's. After retirement they moved to Orr and opened th A&E Drive-in, which they operated until selling it in 1976. After Tony's death on November 27, 1977, she lived in Virginia for a time and then moved back to Orr to the Kallio Apartments, named as a memorial to her husband, who had been mayor of Orr.

She was a very hard worker throughout her life, a wonderful and a kind, caring friend. She enjoyed Lake Vermilion, cards (she was a cribbage champion) and friends. She had resided at the Cook Nursing Home since 1995. Her family chose this poem about her: It broke our hearts to lose you - But, you didn't go alone - A part of us went with you - The day God took you home.
