    I’m at a loss of words. Ellen and I reconnected last year. Ellen and I meet in grade school and went on to high school together. We were tumbling partners, cheer leaders and track team partners. I spent many nights at Ellen’s house where I was always welcome by her most graciace mother
    ( cool ) and wonderful sisters. Scavenger hunts, sleepless nights because we were too busy giggling all night long . Ellen, thank you so much for all the memories and many laughs. I’m so so glad we were able to spend this last year talking, reminiscing and making plans for the future . I will miss you . Many blessings and may all of your loved ones find peace in all your love and all you have done . Your legacy will live on . You are truly blessed . I will always love you . Rest in peace my dear friend . ??? ????? ???

    I am shocked and saddened by this turn of events of the loss of Ellen. I was hoping to connect on Facebook. We graduated from Lisle in the old high school in 1973. Rest in peace, Ellen, If you see my Mom, Betty Nordstrom in heaven, give her a hug from me. She loved talking to you from school when she was the office secretary.
