  7. CandleImageMaryellen was my “coolest” aunt- Family visits to Colorado Springs to see aunt Maryellen, uncle Mike, and my cousin/BFF Dennis count among the fondest highlights of my childhood summers. She had “attitude” in a good way, and really cared about family. We kept in touch over the years, and her letters were always treasured. Rest in peace dear aunt Maryellen.

  8. Maryellen and I were best of friends for almost 40 years. I met her when I was like 19 when my son was just nine months old. She lived in Colorado Springs at the time up Pikes Peak. We hit it off and became pen pals every month for years. I lived in Louisiana at the time. Then years later I moved to Colorado Springs. Maryellen was my angel! She visited me like every Thursday the whole time I lived there. Which was years. She always treated me like a daughter she never, had and my 3 children like her grand kids. When she got older she called me knowing she was not remembering anymore too well and wanted to see me one last time, so I flew down to Humble Texas and spent a last week with her. She loved her grandson Logan and told me she gave him her home and belongings and was moving to Wyoming and Denise and Eva were going to take care of her to the end. Thank you Denise and Eva. You are her rock! I stopped contacting her in the end so she didn’t feel bad that she didn’t remember me anymore. I loved her with all my heart.

  9. Rest in Peace my sweet Aunt Maryellen.
    She was kind, devoted to her family, honest and true. I will never forget her.

  10. CandleImageI will truly miss my sweet aunt she meant the world to me she has become a new n beautiful Angel :: love you always
