In memory of
Carole (Bucher) Ellis
Ellis (Bucher), Carole, passed away Monday, October 10, 2016 at her home. As a wife, mother, grandma and friend, she had an enduring impact on so many people and will be greatly missed. Carole is survived by Joe, her husband of 60 years, who was her soul mate and fellow "tumbleweed" in their adventures across the U.S. and Mexico. They had an endless quest for fun and adventure, always side-by-side, best friends, with an unconventional and fulfilled bucket list. She is also survived by her 4 daughters, Susan Brown (Mike), Laura Gibson (Jack), Linda Rodman (George) and Bonnie Wright (Shawn); 10 grandchildren, Kelsey Brown and Allison Brown-Vine (Doug), Nick (Ashley), Andy, and Carly Rodman, Bailey, Jenna, and Kyle Gibson and Mollie and Sadie Wright; and great-grandson, Mason Rodman.
