So sad to hear that Ella had died suddenly, we shall miss her walking her dog as she did every day.

Ella was born and went to school in Bishop Burton. Her father was foreman at Grange Farm, and when she married she moved to Weel where her husband became the lock master and they had a house that came with the job. Ella worked at Broadgates Hospital in Walkington as a receptionist and after her husband retired they moved back to the village in 1982 but Ken died shortly afterwards.

Ella loved her garden and it was always immaculate.

She will be greatly missed by many friends and neighbours.

Our sympathies go out to her son and family
