Ellen Mae Jackson “Ellie”

In her family she was known as Ellen. By her many friends and colleagues everyone called her Ellie. But whether you are family or friend Ellie was loved and respected by all. And so it is with great sadness the family announces Ellen’s peaceful death in the comfort of her home, “the cottage”, on January 21st, 2017. Ellie was the proud and devoted mother of Tim (Beth), Jason (Jenn), and Marsha (Eric) Harris and a much loved Grandma to Kyle, Emily, and Gavin. Ellen will be greatly missed by her twin sister Elaine Walker and her husband Luke and by her nieces Brooke Weaver, April Monteiro, and Beverly and Nancy Walker. Ellen was predeceased by her parents David and Agnes Jackson and her sister Barbara Whitfield. Ellie was a hardworking and dedicated real estate agent in the Forest area for over 30 years. The family wishes to express sincere appreciation to Dr. Ken Walker and his office staff for their attentive and compassionate care, CCAC and the wonderful VON home care teams and most of all to Ellie’s fantastic friends and the Forest community for their tremendous outpouring of support and kindness throughout Ellie’s brief illness. Visitation will take place at DENNING’S OF FOREST on Thursday, January 26th, 2017 from 2-4 an 7-9 p.m.  A Celebration of Ellen’s life will be held at the Forest Legion Br. #176 on Friday, January 27th, 2017 at 2:00pm.                                                       A private family committal will take place at Blackwell Cemetery at a later date.
