She was preceded in death by her father, Conrad Ellis; daughter, Travacca Couch; and her great-grandson, Jameson Williams.

She will be missed and lovingly remembered by her mother, Vera Ellis; sister, Connie Steele; daughters. Maura (Tim) Duncan and Tara (Kevin) McDonald; son, Nicholas (Sumer) Johnson; other children, Pat Rosenthal, Marty Penny, Ross Penny and their families; grandchildren: Alexander, Desmond, Dakota, Cheyenne, Sabrina, Gregory, Tiffany, Olivia, Lucas and Willa; and great-grandchildren, Jayda, Rayleigh, Torri, Levi, Lorelai and Bear.
