Ellen Smith was a mother to many, there was never a time where someone was not welcome in her home. She fed all well past their stomachs capacity with the best food known to man. Ellen was a devout Catholic and never feared her departure from this life to that of our eternal glory. Often she would say, “I’m ready when He is.” You see, Ellen wasn’t afraid of death because she knew what was waiting. So, as you read this please remember to smile, to rejoice in our time on Earth, and to love all. All Ellen wanted was peace in humanity. She displayed that everyday. Please remember to celebrate her life, celebrate your families, and celebrate the memories you have of her. May God bless you all!
