She loved living in Friday Harbor and getting to know so many Islanders. She had worked at Spa D Bune as a receptionist bringing her grace and elegance. She was also a needle point designer and artist for over 25 years with national acclaim.
Ellie was a great support for many people with an ability to truly listen and offer her wisdom. A shining light to all who know her. Known to have said “If you look your best, you feel your best.” She kept this positive attitude throughout her life. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
The family wants to thank the friends and caregivers, the Hospice teams and a special thanks to Doctor Rachel Bishop who all became an important part of Ellie’s family and showed her such loving kindness in recent years.
She is survived by daughters Janie Ogle (Terry), Nancy Gaynor (Richard), grandchildren Amelia (Chad), Emily (Jason) and Adam, great-granddaughter Skye, niece Julia, cousins Jack, Joel and Lannie. Also dear to her were longtime friends Doris, JoEllen, Beth, Krista, Susan, Dana, Marie and Alison.
