Ellen received her B.A. from Immaculata University, as well as a Masterís of Reading and Masterís of Speech Pathology from Temple University. She spent over 30 years in the practice of reading, speech pathology, and ultimately teaching. As devoted as Ellen was to her profession, her passion for family, friends, and her exuberance for all facets of life was greater. She had so many interests, including service-based work, tennis, golf, bridge, travel and spending time with friends. She was a member of Saint Anne's Episcopal Church, Dunwoody Woman's Club, and Dunwoody Country Club. Memorial services and a reception will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 2 pm at Saint Anne's Episcopal Church in Buckhead at 3098 St. Anne's Lane in Atlanta, GA.

Eric and Liz, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with your mom at Rockbridge Elementary School for many years. I am also a Speech Language Pathologist. Ellen taught the self-contained language class so I worked with her and many of her students. When I retired she actually took my place as the Resource SLP. We would meet once a month for lunch with other retirees from Rockbridge. She would always share pictures of her grandchildren and talk about both of you. She will be missed at our lunches. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
