From Mary Ellen’s family-

Mom dedicated her entire life to her family. Her love was selfless, her compassion endless, and her devotion fierce. If there was a problem, mom was looking for a solution.  If it could be fixed, she’d fix it. If it couldn’t be fixed, she would pray, and then find a way to fix it. She was a woman of unbelievable faith, a teacher and mentor to so many over the years. 

Mom was a talented artist, creative and resourceful. She was an expert at making something from nothing and our memories are filled with Halloween costumes and school science projects, dollhouse furniture and matching summer outfits for little granddaughters, innumerable blankets and baby booties, and crocheted chickens stuck to the refrigerator. 

She kept everything imaginable in her purse and was prepared for any emergency, broken appliance, boo-boo, or request for candy from sticky little hands. She had a song or story ready to entertain in any situation, and when she had used them all, she would create a new one on the spot. Her sense of humor was epic and her dad-jokes were awful, but she filled our lives and our spirits with laughter, even in her final days. 

She touched more lives than she knew and we imagine her crown will be so heavy with jewels, she’ll need to pull it around in a wagon, with Buddy, purring and riding shotgun.
