Ellen Richards

April 29, 1953 ~ December 31, 2019 (age 66)


It is with great sadness that the family of Ellen Dale Richards announce her recent passing in the Wadena Hospital on New Years Eve 2019.

Ellen was born to Fred (posthumously) and Else (Wolff) Richards on April 29, 1953.

Ellen was a generous, caring person who loved family and gardening. We will miss her short but numerous phone calls informing us what was happening with the other family members.

Ellen loved travel and living her time in Edmonton, Saskatoon, and London.

Ellen was predeceased by her parents Fred and Else, brother David and sister Angela. She is survived by sister Norma Jean Sowada (Sieg) and brothers Lynn (Susan) and Vernon (Ione) Richards. Also, nephews Cole and Philip (Tracy), nieces Dawn (Ed), Jennifer (Frank), Samantha (Craig) and Victoria (Joey) and numerous cousins and friends.

Rest in Peace Dear Sister.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
