Ellen and Allen Shank
presence in our lives will never be forgotten. Her love and care for our daughter Rebecca for the years after I returned
to work was so significant in her life and ours. We will forever think of her as "E's Mommy," as Rebecca
called her. Beyond that, she was always ready to help others who needed her, contributing so much to her community, church,
family, and friends. Prayers for all.

Sending Love Hugs and Prayers she will be GREATLY missed.
Mr. Clepper - my sincerest condolences to you & your family. I had Mrs. Clepper
in 10th grade for English during the 73-74 school year. She was a wonderful teacher; so kind, patient, and always
smiling. That year the high school musical was Camelot and she was in charge of the make-up for the cast members.
I was on the make-up team and I remember we all practiced putting make-up on each other, one day after school in her classroom.
Also, you were my math teacher when I was in 9th grade. I have fond memories of both of you as my teachers. My
prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

sympathy to the family. Mrs. Clepper was one of the best teachers I ever had in school and the skills I learned from
her English class have served me well during my life and career. She was also a sweet lady and she left a lasting imprint
on my life. May God comfort her family.

was my English teacher about 47 years ago. It speaks volumes that I still remember her beautiful smile all of these
years later. My sincerest sympathies to the family
