She will be greatly missed by her three granddaughters Jacqueline (Shawn) Brown of Russell, Ky., Ashley (Peter) Bate of London, England and Leslie (Mitchell) Vincent of Ashland, Ky. and ALL her great-grandchildren Freya Bate, Gavin Vincent, and Max Vincent who all called her Granny-Ella. She is also survived by her brother Bill Grizzle and his wife Nora of Westwood, Ky. and Sister-in-law Merle West of Ashland, Ky.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made in her name to the Community Hospice Center of Ashland, KY at 1480 Carter Avenue, Ashland, KY 41101.
