I can't believe it's been 11 years. The last year and a half here have been in turmoil, but things are getting better. I'm happy you were safe through all of this. We still talk about you, and remember the fun times we had in "Chat". Sending ♥ from one Gemini to another ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Ellen ♥ Has it really been 10 years? You are in my thoughts every day. Your name came up in chat, the other night, as it often does. We were talking about you, and , Adrie. Just not the same, when you both made us laugh.
You would not believe what is happening here. You are definitely in a safe place, away from all this. I am visualizing you in a beautiful garden, enjoying the warmth of the sun. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥






















Posted by Jeanne Zieff on August 10, 2020
I can't believe it is 10 years. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I know you are so much with us, guiding us and protecting us. I pray that you are at peace, you are happy, free from any pain and smiling.
What a brave, courageous person you were.
You are dearly missed.
Forever in our hearts, forever in our souls.
We love you forever.

Happy birthday fellow Gemini. Nothing much has changed. We all still love and miss you so much. We have lost a few "Chat" members since I last was here. Bea Rosencutter, and Bobby. I am sure you have been guiding them through their transition
I still get a laugh when I think about some of the silly antics we had in "Chat" .

Hi Ellen My husband use to help me with computer on sending a message to you here and even before when I couldn't get into nf chat room. Now my husband is there with you. He passed away the 17th of this month. He no longer is sick or hurting from his cancer. Someday I will get to meet you and see my husband there too and meet people from nf room. I haven't been in the chat room since you went to Heaven. Here's a hug to you and others.

Happy Birthday

Shared by C J on June 3, 2021
Today, we celebrate you life in spiriit. You were a gracious, loving friend, who always had kinds words. You helped many people by offering you kindness no matter the situation.

I know you will offer your hand by your spirit and people will remember that when they think of you. 



My sister

Shared by Jeanne Zieff on August 12, 2010

Ellen was an amazing person that was multi faceted. Ellen was a sister that I could count on each night for my phonecall. I could also count on those three words each night-I love you. I do and will  miss them forever. Ellen was a daughter. She had a wonderful relationship with our parents, especially our mother. Ellen was an aunt-she took great pride in her two nieces, Arielle and Genna. Ellen was a friend, cherishing her old friends and constantly keeping in touch. Ellen treasured her new chatroom friends, both NF and East New York. Ellen loved family and would often term cousins as Aunts, Uncles, Sisters and Brothers. Ellen was an artist, appreciating paintings, and drawings. She also had an amazing talent and painted beautiful pictures. Ellen was a respected Professional. She adored the children she provided Speech Therapy for and the feeling was mutual. Ellen was a traveler, visiting Europe and many sites in the United States. Ellen stated that her favorite places were Israel and New Mexico. Ellen loved the Beatles, especially John Lennon.Ellen had a deep religious faith and a strong sense of tradition. Ellen was the strongest person I have ever met. Through her many, many, challenges and obstacles, she perservered and purchased a beautiful co-op. It was furnished with sweet, sentimental, adorments and the sense of love and warmth permeated her home. Ellen fought valiantly against the physical and emotional challenges of NF and then faced the battle of cancer. Ellen did this alone-with strength and dignity. Ellen was my sister, Ellen is my inspiration and has taught me not to be afraid. I pray that Ellen is in peace, pain free and is surrounded by love and joy.

Pure Brooklynite

Shared by John Hamelin on August 12, 2010

Ellen was born in Brooklyn and was pure Brooklynite, right down to her accent. she loved the  Brooklyn neighborhood she grew up in speaking of it often in the NF chat room, and often talked of attending neighborhood reunions. she also was a diehard Mets fan but she also managed to make room in her heart for the Yankees something most Mets fans would cringe at. I also know she loved having been a teacher and spoke often about her students, I'm sure she helped so many Children and she touched so many people. she probably never even realized what an impact she had on so many peoples' lives.
