Ella had a love for Jehovah, she made her dedication in 1950 as a baptized witness, faithful for over seventy-one years. Her true passion was traveling and she combined those two loves by participating in the ministry going to many states to preach in "Seldom worked" territories. She had the wonderful privilege of being accepted with her family as a US delegate to attend an "International Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses in the country of Japan in 2013. There were numerous weekend getaways, family reunions, cruises and trips within the US. However, her favorite cruise hands down was "Wendy's 50th Anniversary" cruise with the family in 2018.
Ella was healthy, vibrant with youthful energy she amazed people with her true age especially in Japan where she was interviewed and shocked them all. She loved life and reading her bible, that's why Bible truths came easy for her. We will miss her dearly. That smile on her face but mostly her cheek kisses of "gold".
Services for Ella Mae will be held at a later date. The Waterbury Funeral Home of Waterbury has been entrusted with the arrangements. To leave a message of remembrance, please visit www.waterburyfh.com.
