The last few days I’ve spent my time reminiscing on the life of Ellen Marie Worzala. I haven’t found to many times to weep as she lived her life very purposefully and intentionally with love as her guide.The life that she lead is quite awe- inspiring. She may be one of the lucky ones that can say that she’s truly lead a full life valuing family and friends. Most of my memories leave me with smiles and gratefulness. In her own creative ways of entertaining us, helping us to find calmness in the mess and chaos of everything. Never forcing always guiding with a gentle hand. Cherished grandmother, beloved mother, treasured sister. The woman never meet a stranger once she was done. She aimed for laughter even during monotonous routines in life. To be of good cheer to spread a smile into everyone’s life. I’ve been graced to have family come to me to mention the impact that my grandmother has left on those around her. So many speak of how kind how caring how she was a mother or grandmother figure that they had never had. From my cousins, aunts and uncles. The values that she carried for loving those around her, being dedicated and loyal when others would have given up speaks of her divinity, or at least personally for me. I’m convinced that she was a caregiver to the hurt and vulnerable. It explains her drive to do foster care, animal rehabilitationists and her steadfast role in our lives juggling so many hats. From nanny to teacher, librarian photographer family supporter, artist, storyteller, piano teacher. Done with smiles and a true want to be present in your life. She went out of this world blowing kisses to those she loved. I’m grateful and thankful for this fact. I hope this knowledge brings you the same comfort that it brought me.I know that she watches over all of us today. I invite you to share your stories of the ways she has touched your life. Hopefully she touched your life as she has touched mine. However I’m a bit biased. She’s been my remodel for so many years. I hope to do you proud! I’ll keep my promise to you. I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.

I have known Ellen since the mid 1970s when we taught together at Pierce School. She was a loving kindergarten teacher who befriended a new teacher. Later she joined the noon time Bible study and became an even closer friend. When I came home from the mission field, I always had lunch with her once a furlough. She was a good prayer warrior and financial partner for many years. I miss her.
