I am so so sorry to hear of Ellen's passing. Although I haven't seen or spoken to Ellen in many years, I have so many fond memories of Ellen and our times together in high school with Patti Dolan and many others. Ellen was quiet but had a great sense of humor and made us laugh constantly. I remember many times Ellen spent at my house on Gorden Drive talking with me and my mother. Anytime I was in Paramus visiting my parents, passing Ellen's house and if I saw her outside walking from her car I would beep knowing she probably didn't know who I was passing by in a car with MA license plates. Again I'm truly sorry to your family for your great loss of a mother and a sister. Memories will keep Ellen alive in your hearts. Corinne Fragala O'Shea

Ellen was a great person and a good friend. It is sad that her life has been ended too early. A happy person and always positive. A great daughter to her Dad and a loving mother. She was always supportive to her son's needs. You will be missed.
With deepest sympathy,
