  1. Keith and Ingrid Ball :

    We are sorry to hear of Ella’s passing. Ella always had a pleasant disposition and a welcoming heart for all who came into her home, whether her home was in Brandon, or in Millarville where she lived in later life with Fred, my father. Ella gave Fred love and companionship in the last decade of his life and most importantly–a reason for living. She was a wonderful addition to the Ball family. Thanks Ella for a life well lived!
