THE STORY:

Bonnie Bertram wrote -

Ellen Melinda Smith was an Angel born on December 31, 1984 but was called home December 16th, 2015. Ellen was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension on March 17, 1998 and was given 2-6 years to live. She defied medical logic throughout her life and never let her PH keep her from living life to the fullest. From going to Spain in 2010, going through nursing school, to finding a job as a nurse at a doctors office, she continued to pursue her dreams for the sake of living life to the fullest. Although she wasn't able to have the wedding of her dreams, she did get to marry the man of the dreams on July 20th, 2015. Ellen truly appreciated and valued the people in her life and loved to learn . She loved history, the Cubs, music, learning about people, and had a love for animals....and diet coke! Ellen's smile was contagious and her spirit will live on through the MANY lives she touched while she was with us here. Ellen dreamed of helping find a cure for her disease and in her honor we would like to help raise as much as possible to donate directly to the PH association for research for a cure.
