Memorial services for 85-year old Florence “Ellen” Ireland are Wed, March 1, 2023 at 10:00 at Chamberlain Chapel in Chadron, NE, with Pastor Aaron Sprock officiating.
Burial will be at a later date at the Redington Cemetery in Morrill County, NE.
Florence “Ellen” Ireland was born on Feb 5, 1938 in Scottsbluff, NE, to Forest and Edna Ireland and passed away Feb 15, 2023, at the Pioneer Manor nursing home in Hay Springs, NE.
Ellen had two siblings, William and Maurice, lived in the Scottsbluff area until age of 11 when she moved to the Beatrice State Home. After 26 years on June 19, 1975, Ellen moved to Alliance, NE, to participate in Area I (OMR) services.
Ellen worked at Hardees preparing salads and lived in her own apartment, but 27 years later moved into a Group Home in Alliance where she enjoyed the companionship of her housemates. She made many friends in Alliance over the years.
Ellen moved to the Hay Springs area in Dec of 2019 and entered Pioneer Manor less than 3 weeks before her death. Her immediate family is deceased.
To all those who were blessed to call Ellen – Ellie to some – their friend, they have memories of a sweet and sassy lady who hated chicken but loved coloring, shopping, going on adventures, hot dogs, pizza and hamburgers.
Ellie liked nothing better than going on coffee dates or getting her nails done. She remembered all her loved ones and nothing made her happier than spending time with them.
Ellie will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
