Ellen was born in Renown SK, lived near Candle Lake grades 1 to 9 and moved to live with her grandmother (Mary Nickason) in Moose Jaw to finish her school years. She married Verdie Mellquist April 11, 1957 (divorced 1983), moved from Moose Jaw to Craik, Strongfield, Saskatoon and then Elbow from 1963 to 1975. In 1975, the family moved back to Moose Jaw and Ellen started working at Valley View Center. She received her Personal Development Worker Program certificate in 1976, which encouraged her to continue her education. She graduated from Psychiatric Nursing program from Wascana Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences in 1982 and Emergency Medical Technician, also at WIAAS, in 1984. She retired in 1997.
Ellen loved any time she could spend with her children and grandchildren. She lived on Valley View Drive from 1977 to 2019. She loved her home there: the view of the valley, sitting in the warm sunshine that poured in through her front windows year round and planting her flowers every summer. She had a very strong faith believed that she will see us all again in the new world.
A Private family graveside service at a later date.
