  2. Liz Roebuck says:

    Maryellen was a vital, generous, loving soul. She loved a good laugh, she loved her friends, and she knew how to be a good one. To know her was to know that her family was paramount in her life and she doted on each new addition. Her passing leaves a big hole in the lives of many of us who are grateful to have known her. May she rest in peace.
