To my cousins, Jim, Bette, & Gary and families, our thoughts and prayers are with you as Aunt Sis joins Morris in everlasting life. I remember the great times we had each summer, and sometimes winter gathering at the farm, playing ball, and always having a great time. Those are the memories we all share. I wish I could be there, but know I am with you in spirit on this difficult day.

Ella had a good "run" with children near enough to share with her, check in on her, and take care if her.
For all her children, but especially for Jim, Frances, their children and grandchildren: our thoughts are with you. Recall the fond memories with joy.

Garold and Yvonne, Jim and Frances, Glen and Bette, Gary and Wendy

I am so sorry for your loss and pray the peace of our Lord will help you through this trying time. I always felt my cousin Ella was one of our family through all the great stories of her that Mom and Dad told. In fact she played a big part in Mom and Dad getting to know each other and in their engagement. Of course she was Mom's Matron of Honor and best friend all of her life.
I would love to post the last picture she gave me of her with the Mounties. It is one of my favorites. I have so missed my email friend these last 10 months, and now wish I had kept some of her letters. She was such a giving person. I do have the CD she gave me of the band she played with for the dances. It is so fun to listen to.
I won't be able to make the service but please know that I am with you all in spirit. I send love and prayers to all of you. Linda

To Gary & Wendy and all of Ella's family.
I have known Ella for a long time. She was a very talented, caring mom, grandma & friend. She was lucky to live a long, full life, leaving such a legacy for her family. I know you will think of her often & smile, the warm, welcoming smile that she had. Our sincerest sympathy at this sad time.
