She was predeceased by her husband Sigurdur, father Eliman, brothers Henry and Elmer. Ellen was born on August 22, 1934 at home in Arborg. She married Sigurdur and started to raise their family. Ellen was well known for her knitting skills. Everyone in the family had an afghan or slippers. She loved gardening, doing crosswords and was an avid reader. She had a beautiful singing voice and could even yodel. The family moved to Winnipeg where Ellen worked as a nurse's aide. Ellen will always be remembered for her generosity and sense of humour. We would like to thank the staff at the St. Boniface General Hospital Dialysis Unit for their loving care and the Palliative Unit for their gentleness and compassion for our mother.
