In Memory for Ellen Dee Green Ellen died very young on April 3, 1989 after a battle with cancer. We met in Sunday School when we were 6 and remained friends until the end. Although time and distance often seperated us the bond we shared never wavered. Ellen moved from Cleveland to Boston and then to Maine. I visited her there but cannot for the life of me remember the name of the town she lived in. In Maine she did what she had always dreamed of doing --- raised poodles. Her house had several when I visited her. Ellen faced many challenges in her life and always met them head on. The hardest and bravest was when she knew she would not live much longer was to chose an adoptive family for the center of her life, her son Josh. Ellen and I got up to many things during our time together but even with time and distance I knew she always had my back. That kind of friendship does not come along very often. I still miss her every day.

Another under the radar "tender-heart"

Ellen was strong and could be tough.

I first met her at a Jr High School party at Cindy Goulder's house.

Her patented inceptive one line replies, delivered with a chuckle

cut through BS fast.

A gift I think from her Mom, more so than her Dad.

She kept you on your toes,

and you always knew where you stood with her.

She is missed.

Ellen Green was an old friend.  After leaving cleveland, whenever I came back to visit she and I would get together and always have  fun.  When I was at basic training in the military she surprised me and sent me a ,box of cookies.  What a treat! She had a big heart and is missed

I agree that Ellen had a tender heart. We connected once in Boton and I regret not keeping that up.

I saw Ellen around the last year of her life. Tragically I'll but loved her son Josh. Her son played hockey with our youngest Brian.
