A tribute to Ma Ellen

Jennifer Lombard, Steenberg

Ellen Margaret Cupido, of 76 Sullivan Street, Steenberg, passed away peacefully while surrounded by close family and friends on Mon-day November 21, after a short illness.

She was born on August 14 1930. Ma Ellen leaves behind six surviving children out of eight.

She had 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Ma Ellen was known for standing at the gate of Sullivan Street and greeting all the neighbours on their way to work.

She was also very well respected as one of the oldest residents. She was well-known for her creative knitting.

She will be dearly missed by her family. Thank you to all the nurses at Victoria Hospital for their assistance during her short illness and her home doctor, Dr Janaria for all home visits.

May her soul rest in peace and rise in glory. For funeral arrangements call me on 073 445 1098 or Pam Nero on 076 284 4382.
