Sorry to learn of Ellie’s passing. I worked with Ellie at New Day children’s Center. She was wonderful with the children and very helpful to me as a new teacher. She offered advice and always listened. I often think of her as there is a picture hanging at New Day honoring her retirement. I have so many memories.
