Reading Ellen’s obituary was really a delight so thank you for her story! I did not know the genesis of the Funk family competitiveness - now I do. My sincere condolences for your loss. What a wonderful life Ellen led. What a wonderful family you have. Jim

Terry (Wood's sister) and her partner Phil send all love and support to the Funk family. You were so fortunate to have had such a lovely and loving "Grandma" as a family matriarch. My parents had the MOST fun with Hank and Ellen, and one of my favorite pictures of my son Jesse shows him (maybe age 10?) piloting the boat on Lake Namekagon; so Ellen was part of Kidner lives for three generations. Our thoughts and hearts are with you.

Dear friend to Betty and "Shim" Ellen will be remembered for her wonderful smile, humor and elegant style. The kids will fondly treasure hearing her laughter during Bridge Club. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

The Funks- Ellen and Hank were dear friends of my parents. What I recall about Mrs Funk was her wonderful laugh- and she was laughing almost anytime I was around her. So contagious. She and Hank had a pre wedding party for me and my soon to be husband with all of my family and their Aquinas group of friends. It was memorable.I love looking at the video. You can hear that wonderful laugh of Mrs Funk's. Now you are with the angels and your beloved Hank. Your family will miss you and take comfort knowing where you have gone.

Our condolences on Aunt Ellen's passing. She and your dad are together again. The tribute brought back so many great memories of summer trips to LaCrosse with the Funk cousins. Your mom and dad were so welcoming and never seemed fazed by the chaos that ensued when George and Ginnie's brood of Schneiders rolled into town. We're sad here, but I'm sure it's Happy Hour in Heaven. I would say "May she rest in peace" but I'm sure upstairs there's activities to be organized and she's right in the middle of all of it. Farewell and God Bless, Aunt Ellen, a full life, well lived and an example to us all.

The obituary hit it right on the head....well written. What an awesome lady and kind of the queen of the Schubert Place neighborhood..... also having to corral the Desmond’s. And who could forget when Rex killed your rabbits...Mrs. Funk was “most cross.” I always has a special place in my heart for her as we shared the same birthdays. Often I would call or send a card. Rest in peace. You have earned the greatest of all rewards!

What a wonderful tribute. I remember Ellen fondly from your family gatherings in the backyard next door. Now I understand the existence of the Funk Olympics! She will still be overseeing and loving all of you at this year's event. Play fair! Have fun! Much love and condolences. Janet
