Ellen Bell


Ellen Bell of Westbank,

B.C. passed away peacefully

at St. Paul’s Hospital in

Vancouver B.C., on

December 22, 2012. Ellen

was born and raised in

Sioux Lookout, ON.,

to Frederick and Bernadette (Doyle) Bell. Ellen who was seldom seen with anything

but a smile on her face was loved by all. Her home was

always open to those in need including many foster

children, family, friends and any neighbourhood children

in need of a compassionate caring motherly ear.

Her mastery of the kitchen showed as she loved to bake

and cook from a young age. If you ever met a stranger

that felt like a friend when you left it could very well

have been Ellen. No matter what the circumstances

Ellen made you realize you are very important. She was

a very proud member of Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic

Church and the Ladies Catholic Women’s League.

Ellen is survived by her loving husband, Jack of 28 years, daughter Dawn, sons Lou (Val), Robert (JoAnn), Wayne, Tracy (Christine), Richard, Ron, Mark and Jim, sisters;

Arleigh, Aldene, and Linda, brothers Jim and David,

numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

As per Ellen’s wishes a cremation has taken place.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 25, 2013, 11:00 A.M. at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in

Westbank B.C. and interment service to be held in

Thunder Bay ON. during the summer of 2013.
