She will be missed by all.

Amy & Joe-My sincerest condolences to both of you! Your mother was a beautiful soul and a loss to the community. I will always remember and appreciate how caring she was to her neighbor Betty (my tenant) of many many years . Betty would have not had the quality of life she had thru her last years if not for the kindness and endless generosity of your Mother. Amy I know you are especially aware of just how much Ellen did for Betty. Above and beyond just being a good neighbor! I want you to know your Mothers kindness didn’t go unnoticed and was so appreciated! May she RIP Peace! Take comfort in the fact that your Mother was so well thought of and loved by many! Shelia Mitchell
Leo Roe left a message on June 28, 2020:
Ellen's classroom was right across the hall from my room at Philippi Middle. I always appreciated her ability to teach her students to understand how to do math in their heads, not on a calculator. She was a great role model and became a good friend. Always willing to listen to my problems in the classroom and giving suggestions to help handle situations. She was a wonderful mother and wife, being at George's side through out all his illness and procedures. I was so happy to see that she had found someone to make her happy again after George's passing. And was very honored for her to ask me to sing at her wedding. I feel so sorry that she and Bill had such a short time together. My sincere sympathy goes to Amy, Joe, and Bill as well as the rest of her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.

I’m so very sorry to learn of Ellen's passing. Jim and I first met Ellen and George in 1981 in childbirth class. (The Propsts had to "drop out" of the class early on account of...Amy!) A number of years later our son Daniel declared that Mrs. Propst was one of his favorite teachers. It was a privilege to know her!
