Ellen was born on May 7, 1934 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Ellen married Gordon Spence on July 12, 1952 in Prince Albert, SK. She loved flowers and couldn’t wait to get to the green houses. She would buy as many flowers as she could fit in her car. Then make more trips back. She taught herself to play the organ and enjoyed singing along to her favorite songs. Throughout the years she did a lot of crocheting and knitting. She was also a very good cook and enjoyed baking. She had a good sense of humour and was never afraid to laugh at herself. She was kind and caring, and always available to listen if anyone had a problem or concern.
