“A thing of beauty is a joy forever; It’s loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.” -John Keats
Take my hand Jesus said, I will lead the way. Quietly Ellen followed her trusted friend on Tuesday December 20, 2022.
An enchanted life she led with her knight in shining armor, Robert. Her road warrior partner shared the joy of camping, kite flying, and he made all her dreams come true. The love of Durango brought many years of nature to her. Hand in hand they delighted in their daughters April and Angie’s successes in life. Their daughter’s married bliss brought laughter from Grandchildren Samuel Hermanstorfer, Joshua (Savannah) Hermanstorfer and Amanda Sanderson who provided endless smiles and warm hugs. Life seen through a grandchild’s eyes is pure pleasure. Weekly Tuesday 2 cents kept the family close and helped record the events of life.
With a grateful heart for all who shared a moment in Ellen’s life; she wishes continued happiness and shares a smile to be passed forward. Remember Ellen’s joy of Christmas, Snow, and Flowers. While her life journey was challenging at times; faith and determination gave her the positive jives to continue on.
Surviving are her loving husband Robert DeWolfe, Daughters April (Dennis) Sanderson, and Angela (Rick Packard) Hermanstorfer, Siblings Gayle R Pemberton Stodgel, Pamela L Nelson Larrison (Steve), Gloria J Craig (Cliff), and William F Todd (Joy), Sisters-in-law Mary Joyce Lee (Robert) and Sandra Griffin Todd and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ellen was welcomed to Heaven by her daughter Susan Michelle, siblings Patricia J Todd Cappel, Thomas C Todd and parents Harold (Red) and Florence McDaniel Gibson Todd.
Private services will be held at a later date. Memorials can be made to Jefferson EMS, 351 E Racine St. Jefferson, Wisconsin 53549 or Mt. Morris Fire Foundation, 15 E. Center Street. Mt. Morris, Illinois 61054
