Lonnie, Jerimiah , Fawn and Dave; My heart is broken for you. I loved Ellen so much. We really didn’t have any contact the last couple of years, but she was my friend and I will miss her terribly. All my love goes out to you. I will keep you in my prayers.
You were the best nurse! I knew you loved your job. I’m glad I had the chance to work with you. I’m keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
To all of you I do not know in Ellen’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. I have never had a person make such a profound impact on me in such a short time. I only knew Ellen for 8 months. What a great lady. Prayers for you for peace, comfort and strength during this time
My heart hurts for this loss. Ellen’s family is in my thoughts and prayers. She was a coworker of mine, but also became my friend. She was truly an outstanding nurse. She did her job with ease and compassion. She was always understanding and kind. She also talked highly of her family. I’m truly blessed to have known her.
Ellen’s sarcastic sense of humor, her compassion for both her residents and staff made her a great friend and coworker! She was the best gift Metron of Belding had. I miss working with her (and Lonnie & Sarah) My heart breaks for all of you. She was an amazing woman.
I can’t find the words to explain the loss I feel. I had over twenty years of memories with this beautiful person. My heart is broken. Prayers to the family for strength and healing. She will be remembered and loved by the many lives she touched.
This is such a shock!. Thoughts and prayers to the family. She was the best boss a nurse could ask for. Always willing to help, even if it was just taking the time to listen. She will be greatly missed.

There are no words that could ever ease Susie’s (we’ve called her by that since the 80s), family through such heartbreak. She raised 3 amazing kids, worked her butt off to provide for not only her wonderful family, but her residents at both Laurels and Metron. Sue was a strong independent woman with a heart full of love and admiration for her children and grandchildren. Her sense of humor, ability to stay calm during any situation and perseverance to get things done, made life easier, plus provided stability for those around her. When she took you under her wing, you knew everything would be okay and your life would improve because of her sincere care for you and your family. I am so grateful to have had Sue as a friend, have her there for me during a major transition period of my life, voice her concerns when she knew something was not in my best interest and make me snort laugh until my sides were sore.
