    To Ellie’s family,

    I met your mom in the early ’80s when I did an internship in medical records at OSF. She was so kind. We then worked together for about a year. Things happened, I took a job in the ED, then moved to IA for medical record school. One year in, my mom died. Your mom took me under her wings. I will always be thankful for her grace. She has always had, and always will have a special place in my heart.

    My deepest heartfelt condolences to the Thibault family!!! Ellie was a wonderful woman, a terrific mother, and an amazing part of the community. She always made me feel welcomed. She will be missed greatly.

    We are so sorry to hear of her passing. She was always so welcoming and will be remembered forever. She gave our daughter a beautiful angel figurine when she was born and it is on display in her bedroom to watch over her. She will be missed dearly.

    On behalf of our father Roman Gill (and our mother Gayle, RIP) we extend our deepest condolences to you all. We have good memories of the many times our folks gathered with Bob and Elly. Those were such good days. Now your folks are together again! May all the joyful memories and God’s abiding peace sustain during this time of grieving.

    Patty and family, your parents were dear to us and we have wonderful and fond memories growing up as cousins. Your dad would always laugh when I called him “cuz”! Your mother was a remarkable lady and although she will be missed, is now again at your father’s side! Much love, Ted & Diana Cunningham
