Neda took a vital role in the upbringing of her nieces and nephews, as we were her pride and joy. She also looked up to her siblings and loved them fiercely. Her laughter was comforting and her love was rich.
She spent 30 years as a certified nursing assistant caring for those in her community. She loved her dolls and stuffed animals, all of which she called her babies. Her favorite activities were spending time with family and friends and eating Kentucky Fried Chicken any chance she got.
Her greatest love and devotion was to her church and church family at Healing Heart Church of God in Marion, Indiana. Her family will forever think of her when they see praying hands.
She is survived by her two brothers: David (Nancy) Ellis of Indiana and Joe (Patricia) Ellis of Washington State; by her two sisters: Norma Ledington of Oklahoma and Kay O’Malley of Indiana; by her brother-in-law, Bill Foreman of Marion, Indiana; by over 60 nieces and nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and great-great- nieces and great-great-nephews across the country and one of several cousins, Wayne (Marge) Ellis of Marion, Indiana.
She was preceded in death by her mother and daddy, Glen and Charlotte Ellis; by her three sisters: Judy Judd, Marilyn George, and Becky Foreman; and by her niece, Amber Kay Ellis.
A virtual memorial service will be in the near future. Haskell & Morrison Funeral Home in Vevay is assisting the family during this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you save a life by wearing a mask.
