BLACKLOCK, Ellen Marie

June 4, 1963 – Calgary, Alberta
September 28, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta

 Ellen Marie Blacklock, beloved daughter of Louise Blacklock (nee Schmaltz) (Larry Corneil) passed away on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the age of 50 years.

Born in Southwest Calgary in 1963, Ellen graduated from St. Mary’s High School and Mount Royal College. Ellen loved spending time with friends here and at their summer retreats at Wasa Lake. Ellen, like her sister, shared a passion for rescue animals. She had a warm heart, a big smile and was taken too soon.

Besides her mother Louise and Larry, Ellen is survived by her siblings, Anne (Pat) Murtha, Rob Blacklock, Cheryl Moir, Debbie Blacklock, and Lynn (Brad) Barthelette; nieces and nephews, Adam (Bridget) Murtha, Justin Moir, Chelsea Moir, Riley Murtha, and Allysha Barthelette; three aunts; one uncle; and numerous cousins.

She was predeceased by her father Earl.

 Softly

 Softly the leaves of memory fall.

Gently we gather and treasure them all. Unseen, unheard, she is ever near, Forever loved, forever missed, and oh so dear.

Please God, forgive a silent tear, the constant wish that she were here.

Others are taken, yes we know, but she was ours and we miss her so.

 

A Celebration of Ellen’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Thursday, Octobber 3, 2013 at 3:00 p.m.  If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the  ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation) PO Box 34160, Calgary, AB T3C 3W2, www.arf.ab.ca, or to a charity of your choice.  Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Ellen Blacklock, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    My sincere condolences to the family. I have many warm memories of Ellen from our cabin at Wasa Lake. She traveled there many times throughout the years with my sister Diane and friends. Ellen always had a smile and a woo hoo to share with friends. The last time I saw Ellen she had made the trip from Calgary to Cranbrook in late November 2009 to share her condolences with my mother when our father passed. Rest in Peace Ellen. And to the family; I am so sorry for your loss.

    Sooo sad and sorry to hear about dear Ellen! I remember her big smile and warm heart and her unique laugh! Although I have not seen her in a while my memories are like yesterday. We went to St. Mary’s together and a highlight of my day was seeing her smile! Brother Rob was always a fun guy too.
    I wish her Gods speed and universal guidance to freedom from this planet! Love you Ellen!
