Ellen was born on the 9th day of August 1914 in Pocatello, Idaho, the daughter of Charles and Josephine Carlson. She was the 4th of 8 children.

Ellen attended schools in Pocatello and graduated from Poky High. She worked for a short time for Mountain Bell and also modeled clothing for Fargo's with her sister.

Ellen loved working in her yard and flower gardens. We always found them beautiful and in immaculate order. She also loved dabbling in the stock market.

Special thanks to all the loving care Ellen received by the girls at Ashley Manor and also Creekside Hospice. Special thanks to Tracy Cassia, Ellen's best friends for always being there. We will miss you Mom and Grandma.

As per Ellen's wishes there will be no service. Arrangements are under the care of Manning-Wheatley Funeral Chapel, 510 N. 12th Ave.
