Goldie Evalena Ellis, 76, went home to rest in the Lord with family by her side at 3:23 a.m. Friday, December 13, 2019. at the Manor Court of Carbondale.

"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7

A true believer in Christ and a great example of His Love. Both motherly and a friend to many, with the most thoughtful giving spirit; helping, tending and looking-out for others was her blessing of joy in this life. She was tough in resilience and gentle in spirit. She had a curious mind and wonderful memory, for variety and learning. She was very practical with a good sense of humor. She enjoyed nature and fishing, yard saleing--"treasure hunting"--traveling the world from the comfort of home, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and games with family.

A diamond in the rough and her sparkling light will be dearly missed.

"A mother's love is the closest thing to God's Love on earth!"

She was preceded in death by her husband of forty-two years, Howard Leon Ellis in 2004, her father Herbert Nance, her step-father Harry Reeves, Her mother Esther Nance/Reeves, two brother John Reeves and George Reeves, daughter in law Linda (Short) Ellis and other precious loved ones.

She is survived by her brother Albert Nance and sister Eva Reeves;

her children Tony and wife Buffy (Brandt) Ellis, Troy Ellis, Jody Ellis, Jason Ellis and Robin Ellis;

granddaughters Myranda Hadsock and Autumn Ellis, great granddaughter Mattison Hadsock, and many cherished in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and loved ones.
