Ellen was a huge Detroit Tigers fan and she enjoyed doing crossword puzzles daily. She also liked to travel, most recently visiting Ireland and Scotland. Ellen served the Catholic Church her entire life. She was a very active parishioner at Our Lady of Good Counsel. She sang in the choir, served as Eucharistic minister, and she volunteered with the Felician Sisters doing their nails and hair.
