Ellen and I were childhood "sweethearts" in public school (46). It lasted until Kenny Browd "stole" her away from me and took her to the prom. Very sad to hear of her passing. If anyone knows about her life please post it.

Ellen passed away this past April from cancer. She was a wonderful person and is missed by all who knew her.
Steve Spinner was the lucky one! In the fifth and sixth grades at PS 46 she was the girl every guy wanted to be seen with.
Rest in Peace Ellen.

What a shock to see this. Ellen was such a friendly, upbeat, lively, energetic, beautiful girl in high school....the one we all wanted to emulate. She will be looking down at this reunion and smiling.

I met Ellen at the beginning of 10th grade and we became good friends. I thought she was the girl who had everything - cute, smart and a scintillating personality. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Apparently she had everything but longevity.

I am truly stunned and shocked at learning about Ellen's passing this year...It's been over 40 years since we graduated from Lewis and there have been only a handful of people that I have wondered about during this time...Ellen was one of those near the top of the list. I was immediately attracted to her by her sense of self, her good nature and the strength of her integrity. We spent a lot of time together from our Sophomore to our Senior year, especially as G.O colleagues....I can't ever remember a single moment where she said anything negative about anyone or anything...It's sad, when many of us as we age, become reflective and attempt to connect with those who meant something in our lives, only to find out that they're gone...Though I haven't seen her in decades, I am still saddened by this loss.

It is very emotional for me to read everyone's comments about Ellen. I was the lucky one who was able to call her friend until the end of her life. For those of you who were not that fortunate, Ellen remained the same upbeat, selfless person she was throughout high school. She apologized for being an unnecessary burden to those she loved. She married Glenn Stein 30 years ago who was the love of her life. Their children, Charlie age 26 and Ally age 22 are fantastic people who Ellen was extremely proud of. Until two years ago when she retired, Ellen taught elementary school. I know she would modestly be touched by everyone's sentiments.
Have a wonderful reunion. Sorry I have to miss it.
