Mary Ellen ("Dude" to those close to her) was born in Hayfield and grew up in the Great Depression. She lived a life of service to her family, friends and the community. Her positive outlook, sense of fair play, work ethic, and charity to others were inspiring to us all. In her early years, Dude's parents, siblings, nieces and nephews were the center of her life. In midlife, she and her husband created a wonderful household for their son filled with a backyard skating rink, late night monopoly games, a dog, and constant love. In her later years, three grandchildren completed her world.
We could always count on Dude. Her spirit will continue to guide us along the path of goodness.
