Dear Cathie, Kevin and family, My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I have many fond memories of your mom from the days I used to babysit both of you, and later at the University. May your cherished memories keep her close. Barbara Tattersall (Eckmier)

Our sincere condolences. Ella May was very special. Maria remembers her from when she was a student and then getting to see her every year with Cathie at Flora Gardens. And she saved my (Tim's) butt many a time at the Department, since she tended to stay after hours and I was so often late at getting paper work done. Love Maria and Tim.
