    We have shared over sixty years of friendship with Ella living across the street from her. Memories of good times will last forever. She was kind and generous serving our family through thick and thin. Her cookies, nut bread, soups when Mom was sick, etc. will not be forgotten. She really lived for her family and you guys reciprocated in the end. Cindy was devoted to her unconditionally.

    Gondeks + Johnsons are a good mix. There will be distances of miles between us but memories will remain. Stop over when you are in Unionville; we just might be home.

    One of the most loving and people I have ever know. Always worried about other people even when she
    Was as sick as she was.
    Thru the years she was always there for me if I needed someone to talk to, I just hope I helped her as well.
    Ella will always be in my heart and thoughts..may she be in peace now.
