Obituary for Ellen D. Wall

Ellen Savage Wall passed away At Kingston Residence of Sylvania on Jan 28, 2013, with her family by her side at the age of 84. She was born February 24, 1928 to John M and Kathryn Fox Savage. She was the 4th of 9 children. They lost their mother at a very early age and were raised by their father. His goal was to keep their children together and to ensure they were all educated. Ellen attended St Ann's (St. Martin de Porres) Elementary School and graduated from Notre Dame Academy. After graduating from Notre Dame she planned on attending nursing school when her father became ill and she had to work at the family grocery store, The Savage Market. It was then that she met and later married Ray; they were married in St. Ann's church 64 years ago and had 3 children. Ellen spent her life caring for others. She was a long time parishioner of St. Agnes Church and then at Christ the King Church where she attended mass often daily and volunteered whenever needed including Communion distribution, funeral services and mobile meals. She was called on many times to assist her siblings, family, and friends whenever in need. Her children, grandchildren, and friends were her life. Her outgoing, social, and spunky personality was admired by all. Her smile and her laugh were infectious. Because of her close relationship with her many siblings she formed an unusual bond with so many of her nieces and nephews. She was affectionately known as “mean old Aunt Ellen” a title she cherished. She is survived by her husband Ray; daughter Beth (Dr. Kris) Brickman; sons Tim and Kevin Wall; grandchildren who referred to her as “Monie” are Kelsey, Kendall, Cameron and Cory Brickman, Mackenzie, Parker, Madison, Kennedy, Tanner and Cooper Wall; siblings, Marie Witherell, Fran Somers, Libby (Frank) Campbell, Nancy Coyle, Jim and Robert (Sue) Savage and sister-in-law Julie Etzel. She was preceded in death by her parents Kathryn and John M Savage; brother John F. Savage, sister Margaret; brothers-in-law Tom Witherell, Scott Somers, Hank Coyle, Bill Etzel; nephews Marty Witherell, Joe Etzel and neice Sally Witherell.
