  1. I was very sorry to hear about Ella's passing. I can still remember Ella and Lyle's visits to my family's home (Cecil and Lucy Pierce) and seeing them when we had those large family reunions. I still recall the Packard my father used to drive. Ella was a very kind woman. Please accept our sympathies.

  3. Our sincere sympathies and prayers are with the family. Wish the weather had allowed us to be at the funeral. Aunt Ella was a dear, sweet lady and we will certainly miss visiting her at her lovely home in Belmont. She raised a nice family, took care of Uncle Lyle in his "old age" and now, it's her turn to rest. God bless and know she is with Him.

    Lovingly, Sharol and Bill White and Family
