Ellen Marie Ford

Aug. 26, 1958-Sept. 4, 2017

The giggle and the laughter have faded and will be missed by all her family and friends.

Ellen Marie Ford, a lifelong resident of Plainville, passed away on Sept. 4, 2017, after a two-year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family and friends. She was 59 years of age.

Ellen was born Aug. 26, 1958. She graduated from Plainville High School in June 1976. After graduating, Ellen worked as a bookkeeper and office manager for several local companies in and around the Plainville area. Since December 2011, Ellen had worked for Northeast Carbide in Southington, Conn. She loved working for this company and appreciated all the help and support they had given her during her illness.

Ellen was a happy, family oriented free spirit who brought great joy to all of us. She was devoted to her only daughter, Melissa. They were the “Gilmore Girls” of Plainville, always together and always laughing.

Ellen is predeceased by her parents, Stephen and Marie Ford of Plainville and her brother, Stephen Ford Jr. of Chester, Conn.

Ellen leaves her wonderful daughter, Melissa, Melissa’s husband, Kevin Albert, and her beautiful grandson, Owen. She also leaves her “Big Sista,” Kathy Ford Stelik and her husband, Craig Stelik, of Narragansett, R.I,. and their children, Todd, Aaron and Kate. And, she leaves her very devoted brother, Kenneth Ford and his wife, Gail, of Middletown, Conn., and their sons, Tom, Patrick and Daniel; her best friend, Katherine Verano and her daughter, Kaitlyn Berkel and friend and beach buddie, Debbie Donahue.

At Ellen’s request, there will be a private family memorial to be scheduled at a later date.
