February 4, 1921 - March 30, 2015
Longtime Ephrata, Washington resident, Ellen Fenimore, passed away Monday, March 30, 2015 at 94 years young. She was born February 4, 1921. Ellen will be remembered for being forever young at heart and wherever she made her home she had dear friends of all ages. Ellen and Paul owned and operated Fenimore Flowers on Basin Street in Ephrata in the early 1960’s. After they sold the flower shop Ellen worked at Potter Drug until it closed. Her husband, Paul, worked for the Grant County PUD as a meter reader and for House Laundry. They were also active in The Loyal Order of Moose. After retirement they traveled south to Arizona in their travel trailer where they sometimes served as park hosts. In the summer months they spent time as park hosts at Daroga State Park near East Wenatchee, Wash. where they managed the park, greeted guests and Paul maintained the campgrounds and gardens. Ellen was a character and would tell her friends that she always got good grades in school because her teacher was also her Sunday school teacher ... and she was the “teacher’s pet”. She also said when she would wake up during the night and was not able to go back to sleep she would lay in bed and pray for her friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas J. and Bernice Williams; brothers Thomas Jacob and Lewis H. Williams; her husband, Paul J. Fenimore; daughter Paula Ann Fenimore Crippen; and son-in-law John Crippen. Ellen is survived by grandsons Will Crippen of Dallas, Texas and Jesse Crippen of Louisiana; nephew T. James (Carole) Williams; and nieces, Carol Jane (Dan) Hovanes, Margaret Kaye (Dave) Polk, Sheryl Williams; and many dear friends. Joint inurnment for Ellen and Paul will be at the Ephrata Cemetery, Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. A memorial service for Ellen will follow at 11 a.m. at United Methodist Church, 117 C St. NW, Ephrata.
