For 40+ years she was a LPN at St. Francis Hospital. She was friendly and had such a wonderful bedside manner that she was loved by her patients and co-workers. Ellen made up funny words like "yako, yako" and "yao" and cheerfully scattered her humor.
She is now reunited with her husband James, daughter Karen, brother and sisters. Ellen is survived by sons Gerald (Linda) and Glenn (Denise), four grand- childen, four great-grandchildren, and brother James (Winifred) Yamada.
Forever in our hearts. Private services pending.
