I'm so very sad to hear about Mary Ellen passing. I worked with Mary Ellen for 20 years and enjoyed her funny side and kindness. She was so very happy to be blessed to be Jordan's mother. She was so proud of the man he became and bragged on him daily.. I feel so bless to have talked to her before her passing. I will remember her fondly. My God be with her loved ones.

Maryellen was the wife of one of my closest friends, Steve,who recently passed away. She tolerated our obsession with old cars with grace and lasting tolerance. She was a true fighter who bore her tragic diagnosis without complaints. She will be missed by many.

My condolences to Maryellen’s family. My dad was her cousin, Bill Rader. He passed away in 2015.

- Eric Rader, Tuesday July 20th, 2021

I’m heartbroken to hear of Maryellen’s passing. She was such a kind and wonderful friend in high school. I lost contact with her after school and little did I realize that she was living and working in Springfield all this time. If only I had been able to connect with her or meet up with her at our 20th or 25th reunion. Sadly now I will no longer get that chance. I send my prayers and thoughts to her family.

- Jo Ann Taylor(Mills), Tuesday July 20th, 2021

Maryellen was such a sweet co-worker. She was always smiling and cheerful. She was very proud of her son and talked about him often. My condolences and prayers to the family.
