Ellen was very caring, thoughtful and an attentive listener to all.  Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were very important to her.  She was an avid gardener and took pride in her flowers.  Hobbies included baking, playing cards and attending various musical engagements and fiddle contests with her husband.  Both she and Brian loved to travel and spend time at their trailer at Lake Dore and at home where family and friends were welcomed with open arms, food and music.  She was an active member of her home church and the former Micksburg United Church, now located at Champlain Trail Museum.  She and Brian played a significant role as members of the Micksburg Seniors Club.
