Ellie was predeceased by her husband, Mark Elbert Woods and her brother Donald Barrett. Left to cherish her memory are her loving and devoted children, Maryann Allen, Erich Woods and Karl Woods; granddaughters, Amanda, Meg, Ashley, Tina, Karis and Sarah and two great-granddaughters Kara, Brianna, Aubrey and Erin.
