Ellen gave her heart and life to her Lord in early girlhood and united with the Wesley Methodist Church. Then in the fall of 1925, she with her husband, took their stand with the Church of God at Sunnyside, Oklahoma.

In her last illness and suffering she was always kind, patient, and uncomplaining, manifesting the love of her Saviour, greeting all with a smile that came to see her. She was loyal to her family, her church and her Lord for whom she was always ready to testify of his love and saving grace.

She leaves to mourn her departure, a devoted husband, four children, father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John McDonald, Caldwell, Kansas; one brother Ercille McDonald, four sisters, Mrs. C.S. Shellhammer, Mrs. Frank Ulrey, Medford, Oklahoma; Mrs. Lloyd Courtright and Miss Gladys Faye McDonald and numerous other relatives and host of friends.

She was Loved and Highly respected by all who knew her. This records the passing of one more of the Lord's Jewels from this world to that home our Savior has gone to prepare for those who Love Him.
