Ellen was also active with the Boy and Girl Scouts, Little League, DeMolay and Job's Daughters. Ellen was happiest when she was spending time with her family and loved to travel. Whether it be a cruise with her daughter Betty, a road trip to Mardi Gras with her son Bill or a whirlwind tour of Washington D.C. to see the cherry blossoms with her son Ken, Ellen was always ready to grab a bag and go.
