Condolences


Dear Aunt Ellie, I was so sad to hear of you passing away and now you are with our wonderful Lord. I remember when I was about 8 years old and you would visit our home with Steven and Uncle Jimmy. Nancy would get into a wrestling match with Steve and Nancy would win. Sometimes the whole family would hang out and just have great laughs sitting outside in the back yard while Dad would be grilling. Uncle Jimmy would tell stories and have us laughing. I love you Aunt Ellie and will miss you until we meet again. Love always, your niece Lois

Steve, I am so very sorry for your loss. I haven't see Eleanor for many years but I have fond memories of your mom. What a wonderful lady she was. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
-Patti Pearson

Ellie, God has His hands full with Mary Brewer, Jean Loebner and you together again. The Penguin Trio are creating havoc in Heaven with all their antics and laughter. (I am sure of it as they did so down here.) Thank you for the special Crown Charm and all the other special things you gave me. But most of all, thank you for the love and friendship you shared with me. May I celebrate your life even though I miss you. Steve, Ellie will be missed by so many whose lives she touched. May God wrap His arms of comfort around your family and those of who were privileged to call you friend. With Love, Joyce Ann
-Ernie & Joyce Ann Jaillite-Loebner

Ellie was a wonderful friend to my mother, Jean Heuerman Loebner. Mom loved her so much and our family, Terry, Debbie and I loved her too. She made us laugh and smile when we were sad. What a sweet person to have in our lives. To her family who I never met, I wish you peace and good memories of Ellie. She is truly in a better place.
