    Welcome back home Ellie. Last time we spoke you were coming home as you and Clarence made sure you would come back. My goodness Ellie we go back so far I lost count maybe 1984 to 1986. All the way to the end of Amador County Women's Bowling Association. What a time we all had as some wanted it all there way or no way. I remember one Senior Sweetheart Tournament, before they stopped them, you and your committee did such a wonderful job and everyone was having fun and you had a granddaughter with you to help and as the three of us watched the fun and heard the laughter your granddaughter said: "Grandma, there's so many of you." Gray hair and all but we filled GCL's every tournament. Ellie, Don spent Thanksgiving week in the hospital and then when he came home he caught???? We also found he has kidney stones to take care of so we missed your "last goodbye" at Daneri's but not here at home with the two of us. We love you and Clarence and we send your family our love and sincere sympathy but what a "truck load" of memories they share as we hold many close to us too. As Always, until we meet again, With Love, Don & Sandi Rettagliata

    Met Ellie and Clarence when they attended church at Amador Free Will Baptist. She was a doer and always ready to help out. Took our kids bowling several times along with Danielle and Michael. I cherish those memories. Saddened to hear of her passing. My condolences to the family.

    Ellie lived across the hall from me at prestige assisted living. She loved our Lord and we spent much time sharing memories and how God kept through good and hard times. She was a diligent worker at anything that came her way. She was straight forward with her counseling yet never knew a stranger May God bless her family and remember her legacy as a gift to her. Love , Janet😘
