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.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Kelowna
General Hospital or the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
