I am so sad to hear of Ellen's passing. She was a dear friend and co-worker. I am so fortunate to have been part of the " Dr. Magee family" and will miss her at our continued gatherings. We kept in touch with phone calls and since she moved to Shrewsbury I would pick her up for our lunches and dinners out. I enjoyed those rides and will miss her quick wit! She was so proud and loved to talk about her family. Sheila, Sandy, Maria and Joe please accept my deepest condolences. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am honored to have known Ellen as a dear friend and co-worker. We shared some great memories over the years at Dr. Magee's office as well as our lunches and dinners out of the office. After her retirement , we still kept in touch, which meant so much to me. I will truly miss our phone chats and her laughter. She was a great lady who gave a lot to her community, and she will be missed by so many.

For over 3 decades Ellen was my friend and a valued colleague. Never flustered, she was someone who, when she encountered a problem, just figured it out and got it done. This was true when she was solving a clinical problem in our practice. It remained true to the end when she planned her hospice care simply saying to me "I've had a good life". It was more than that, Ellen. Much more.

Thank you Dale. You described her to T. Your friendship meant a lot to her. Sandy
