    Such a wonderful couple – they will be missed by all who knew them. Both hardworking with great senses of humour. Mary Ellen created amazing dinners, and had a lovely home.

    I had the pleasure of working with Mary Ellen through Brown Bros.
    She was a bright light and I always looked forward to her visits in the office.
    Rest well.

  4. We knew Mary Ellen and Eugene when they lived in Revelstoke. They were our neighbours. Such great people and we became good friends. Had a lot of good memories with them. They had their once a year pig roast and high water days in Beaverdell. Never forget the good times we had with them. I am going to miss my dear friends. May they rest in peace. Val and Will Solomon
