My thoughts are with all the Hollands. Ellen was my mom's high school classmate and I was lucky enough to share a birthday with her. Among other things, she was great about tracking me down and sending me a birthday card no matter how old I was or what obscure place I was living in. I was lucky to know Ellen and will miss her. Godspeed 4/9/28! - bbd

My condolences to the Holland family. In hauling the Pantagraph for six years I got to know most of the north side of Wapella, for better and worse. Ellen and Bill were first class people who were a pleasure to do business with. She was a great friend and classmate to my mother as well. My prayers are for the well-deserved repose of her soul.
