Ella Kay was a loving mother and caring grandmother, sister and friend. She enjoyed the simplest things in life but her greatest joy was her family. With a big heart and gentle spirit Ella loved doing things for others. She wasn’t able to do a lot of physical labor, but she spent a lot of her time doing crafts for other people.
