Old Town -
On August 18, 2016, Ruth Hazel Price Ellis got her wish to see her name in the paper after ninety nine years of joyous living. She died in her home of natural causes surrounded by family. She was born on November 19, 1916, to Roscoe and Bertha (Perry) Price of Argyle.
Mom enjoyed a nursing career as an RN and saw many changes throughout the years. From 1959 to the mid-nineties she entertained vacationers at Ellis Camps in Beaver Cove, Maine. She was involved in her community, her church and local women's groups. Her passion was watching Wheel of Fortune and doing the daily crossword puzzle - IN INK!
Ruth was a proud mother of four, LeRoy Ellis (Joanna) of Greenville, Betty Ellis of Old Town, Nancy Koktavy of Old Town and Frances Rice of Lennox, South Dakota. She was a grandmother of seven; a great-grandmother of nine and a great-great-grandmother of two. Ruth was predeceased by her husband, LeRoy; parents; brothers, Wallace and Arnold; and son-in-law, Richard Rice.
The family would like to thank employees of Hospice of Eastern Maine - Sheryl, Dolly, Tricia and Pastor Dave for their extraordinary care and the gentleman at The Coffee Break Café for their friendship.
Donations in her name may be made to the Old Town Animal Orphanage or the charity of your choice.
Private interment will be at Fairview Cemetery, Veazie.
