  1. I remember the great times that we had when Aunt Ellie was my boss at The Dutch Pantry. She used to make us laugh, I’ll think of those fond memories.

  2. I met Miss Ellie at least 40 years ago. I worked for her at the Ground Round as her bar manager for at least 8 years.
    I not only did that but I also managed a Waldenbooks in the Capital City Mall. I convinced Ellie to leave rhe restaurant biz due to immense stress and join the wonderful world of retail.
    Soon she was managing the Waldenbooks in the Colonial Park Mall.
    I traveled with her. We threw Oscar parties together. We went to the Book Expo in various cities for over 20 years.
    She was one of my best friends.
    She taught me to hold my head up high and be proud of my sexuality that I was ashamed of for most of my life.
    We lost touch about years ago but I would see her daughter Deb and her son in law Tom on occasion and I was always updated.
    My heart just cant take too many more hits.
    I love you and I will always miss you Miss Eiilie.

  3. The time she flirted brazenly with the head of HR. She could never find her purse. ?
    We really had some good times. Someone should notify Luanne. She made friends with Dave Peltzer and he went to her little store for an autographing. She loved her kis and grandchildren. I could go on for ages. She was some woman!

  4. Rest in Peace sweet Ellie. May you fly with angels and may God comfort your extended family and friends during their time of grief. We will hold your memories close. ?
