Ella was born on August 9, 1936 and died peacefully on October 26, 2021. She was born in Jeffersontown Kentucky in a sharecropper’s cabin. She grew up in an orphanage, an experience that shaped her into a giving person who extended kindness to all. Although she and Joe married 47 years ago, they have been together for 56 years. They lived in Mentor for the last 29 years and resided in Willowick prior to that.
She worked as an assembler for Libra Industries. She enjoyed traveling the world “cruising” with Joe and wintering in Florida. Ella also enjoyed old county music.
Ella was a considerate woman who was dedicated to her family. She never met a stranger.
She will be missed by all.
