Ellis, Carolyn (Carol) L. Ellis, age 71, passed away peacefully on April 27, 2018. Carol was preceded in death by her husband, Frank, in 2005. She is survived by her son Billy Finger (Mary Ann), her daughter Cindy Sielawa (Paul); her grandchildren Rayna and (Kevin) Sherwood, Carol Sielawa, Taylor Sielawa, Adam Finger, Kristen Sielawa, Byron Finger, Dillia Finger; great-granddaughter Adalee; mother Ruth Presley; brother Curtis (Linda) Presley and family; sister Faye (Mack) Hughes and family; as well as many other relatives and friends. Carol was a loving and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great gammie who deeply loved her family and friends. Carol touched the lives of many people with her kindness, compassion and bigger than life sense of humor. Even before her last breath, she was joking with hospice caregivers about her “sexy” legs. Carol was proud of her work as a CNA and loved her patients with every ounce of her being. In addition to her work as a CNA, Carol was a postal carrier for the USPS. She enjoyed reading and could be beaten by no one in a game of trivia. Carol’s true love, Frank, left her too soon in this life. She is now joined with Frank and all those she loved who have gone before her, especially her granny.
