Sells, Ellen Marie

Ellen Marie Sells was born to Orland and Yvonne Sells June 29, 1949, in Columbus, Ohio.  She passed away at her home in Plano, Texas on October 21, 2018.  Ellen was preceded in death by her father Orland, sisters Wendy and Carol and her beloved nephew Rick.  She is survived by her mother Yvonne, sisters Sarah and Linda, niece Lynne, nephews Chris and David and all their families.  She also leaves behind a herd of friends from near and far, most especially her best friend Lisa, and her dogs Yummie, Holmes and Sally.

Ellen never lost her wickedly quirky sense of humor.  She was an avid reader and always had a book in her hand.  She loved to attend Scarborough Renaissance Festival and the Dallas Summer Musicals.  She was a loyal fan of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and, of course, Star Trek (LLAP).  She bled Scarlet & Grey…Ohio State football forever!  Go Bucks!!  Ellen also loved animals…birds, ferrets and especially DOGS.  Hers and yours.

Ellen was my best friend starting when we were 12 years old and we stayed in close contact until our mid-20's. She was just as funny then. I was so blessed to find her again several years ago! We had plenty of laughs about growing up in Columbus. She will be missed by many.

All of us who worked with Ellen looked for excuses to talk to her via telephone or email. She was so witty and kind. We miss her.

Ellen was always the sunshine in my day at TIG, smiling, and joking. She was a great woman with a big heart.
