She is survived by siblings: John, Marie, Margaret and Pat; her nieces Emily, Abby, Amy, Jennifer, Megan and nephews: David, Jeffrey, Patrick, Michael and Cory as well as many cousins and dear friends.
Ellen was described by her closest friend, Wendy, as 'an eclectic spirit who brought both broad smiles and head scratching moments to those who knew her.'
Ellen loved being an aunt and carried a special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews as well as her 'adopted' families.
She was a graduate of McLean High School as well as the University of Virginia and has many lifelong friends from those experiences.
She worked for more than 30 years at the Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center and had a passion for her students and a love for her co-workers there.
