I have many happy memories of interviewing Ellen during her AAA of WNY years while I was with WGRZ TV Channel 2 News. of course, the Buffalo Bills Super Bowl years 1991-1994 were really special!

Condolences on the loss of Ellen. Among her many passions, none ecceeded her love respect, and pride for her two daughters & their families. And her affection for her family was interspersed with her regard for literature, public service (we benefitted from her presiding role at the Springfield Forum) her
Love of food and theater. She was thrilled that she shared pleasure, pain, & accomplishment. We are sorry to lose her with you.
