MACDONNELL, ELLA LINNEA

(1926 – 2013)

Ella passed away peacefully on

Sunday, April 07, 2013 surrounded by her family.

She is survived by her loving

husband Allan of 63 years;

children, Allan (Moyna), Nancy (Bob), Colleen, Kevin (Valerie)

and Garth; her grandchildren and

extended family members, Jennifer

(Chris), Jarett, David (Domineke), Jamie (Roland), Candice (Sean), Meghan (Scott), Blair, Shea (Nicky), Adam (Sara) and Jessica.

Ella was born in Eatonia, Saskatchewan to Gustav and

Hilda Anderson. Her family moved to Athabasca, Alberta then, at the age of seven, they relocated to Kelowna, BC. She had eight siblings and is survived by her sister Anna.

Ella and Allan lived on their farm in the Ellison district until 1978 when they moved to their current residence in Lake Country, BC.

She was especially proud of her ten grandchildren and

cherished the close relationship she shared with each one

of them. She will forever be remembered for her devotion

to family, home cooked meals and beautiful gardens.

Over the years, Ella had a keen interest in researching and developing a horse program that produced many quality

offspring. She always enjoyed riding her horses at their ranch and continued actively riding until last summer.

As per her wishes the family will hold a celebration of life

at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages your donation to

the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Special thanks goes out to the staff of Lake Country Manor, the team at KGH and Dr Penney.
