She and her husband, Duane, raised their three children (David, Richard, and Barbara) on a small farm in Germantown, Wisconsin.

Some of Ellie’s favorite activities included gardening, storytelling, traveling, golf, bowling, and creative writing.

Ellen was a devout Catholic and was able to travel to several important religious cities, including visiting Jerusalem and the Vatican.

One of Ellie’s core characteristics was her zest for life. She had always enjoyed meeting new people and spending time with her dear friends and family.
