Mary Ellen was my nurses aide many years ago at Pottsville Hospital. She was one of the best. Always dependable, caring and cheerful. She was a real joy to work with. May she Rest In Peace after a job well done.

I am so sorry to hear of Mary Ellen's passing. We worked together for almost five years at Pottsville Hospital. I used to pick her up whenever she needed a ride to work, or whenever there was a snow storm, she knew I would be there for her. Although I have not seen Mary Ellen in many years, I will never forget her greeting the patients with, "Good morning! What a beautiful day". She was always so cheerful, the patients loved her and so did her co-workers, especially me. She was just adorable and a wonderful person to work with and know. Good bye Mary Ellen, you are in God's Arms now and He loves you. Rest in Peace honey, you deserve it.
