Her children will rise up and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:27

Ellie went home to heaven on Nov. 12, 2016, at 88 years if age in St. Louis, Missouri.

She is survived by Laurie Leeper of Fortuna, California; Timothy Ives of Vancouver, Washington; and Kerri (Rick) Bonasch of St. Louis, Missouri. She was blessed with nine grandchildren, Daniel, David, Jacob, Ryan and Abraham Leeper, Angela Langfield, Timothy Ives, Melissa Duffy and Matthew Bonasch; and 24 great grandchildren.

We were so blessed to have her as our mother and grandmother. She touched the lives of those who knew her.

Ellie was a rugged new Englander, born Jan. 20, 1920, in Portland, Maine. She met her beloved Hal “Doc Ives” at UC SF Dental School while in Dental Hygiene School. She was a longtime Happy Camp resident; she loved her Family, Jesus, Maine, music, dogs, ice cream, the sea and the Klamath River!

Graveside services will be held at the Happy Camp Cemetery in the spring.
