Ellen loved going to the horse races at Arlington Racetrack and playing poker with her family and friends. Since high school, she had a group of friends called the Loafers and they continued to meet regularly through the years. She worked at the Village of Palatine for many years as an administrator and always had a smile on her face for the villagers who came in. Ellen was a big Cubs fan, and was so happy when they won the World Series in 2016.
