Lillian “Lilly” Marie Ellis, a resident of Yoncalla, Oregon, passed away on November 21, 2009, due to complications of kidney disease. She was five years old.
Lilly was born in Roseburg, Oregon on April 14, 2004.
Lilly was full of life and put her whole heart into everything she did. She loved to dance in ballet, play T-ball, and be with her family.
She had a love for everything that life had to offer. Lilly had a never-give-up attitude. She had a soul that touched everyone’s heart who crossed her path.
After a courageous battle with kidney disease, she is now looking down at us and is still touching our hearts.
The family would like to thank everyone for all the prayers, fundraisers and support.
Lilly is survived by her parents, Joshua and Christie (Kelley) Ellis; her brother, Gavin; several grandparents; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and a multitude of friends.
