She is survived by her son David (Betty), two daughters, Dorothy Edge and Lillian (Rob); three grandchildren, Gary (Jill), Bary (Dulcy), Dallas (Kevin); and five great-grandchildren, Kaiden, Andy, Jason, Shelby and Shayla.

    Dave and Betty,
    It’s been a very long time since I have seen your Mom. Seeing her picture reminded me of those sparkling eyes and that wonderful smile she always had. She was a lovely lady and will be missed by all.

    With deepest sympathy,
    Lisa

    To Family of Ellen Bryant:
    It was our privilege to worship with Ellen at our monthly church service at Brentwood Care Center. Ellen always greeted us with a broad smile and a twinkle in her eye. She enjoyed the old hymns and participated as much as possible. On behalf of Foothills Alliance Church in Calgary, we extend our love and pray that the “God of all comfort” will wrap you in His arms and carry you through these difficult days of loss.
    Sincerely
    Margaret Griffin

    Dear Dave, Dorothy, Lillian and all the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time with the loss of Ellen. I know she was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother and a very dear friend to me and my family. Her smile and kindness will always be remembered by me. Strange how Ellen and my Mom both passed on March 8th and I am sure my Mom was waiting in Heaven for her dear friend and they will be together again.
    Bless you all. Love Jenny
