Ellen Page McLennan
June 4, 1956 – February 17, 2021
Ellen Page McLennan, 64, of Hanover, Virginia passed away on February 17, 2021.
In addition to her parents, Hazel and James McLennan, she was preceded in death by her brother Richard McLennan.
Ellen was born in Richmond, Virginia on June 4th, 1956, and was the third of four children. Ellen attended Fairmont State University in West Virginia and then went on to work for the United States Postal Service, where she retired from a 35 year career in 2008. Ellen leaves behind two brothers, James and Andy McLennan; three children, Rachael, Justin and Taylor; and two grandchildren, Alivia and Mackenzie.
Ellen loved her children and her grandchildren more than anything in the world, and will be remembered for her sense of humor, her kind and gracious personality, and her love for her family.
A service will be held Monday, March 1st at 2 pm at Westhampton Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the SPCA of Richmond.
I’ll always remember Ellen as a kind and gentle soul. She had a deep love for her children and grand children.
I’m so very sorry to hear of Ellen’s passing. She was a such a kind, sweet person. I have good memories of times our families spent together when we were young and was glad to see her a couple times in the last several years. My thoughts are with her children and the rest of the family. She will have very good company in Heaven with her dear parents and brother Richard.
So very sorry to learn about Ellens passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her children and grandchildren. Many fond memories of her. May the Lord comfort you in the days ahead.
So sorry to hear of Ellen’s passing. She will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with you.
So sorry to hear of Ellen’s passing. I knew Ellen more when I was younger and our families gathered. My mother was Betty McLennan Barden and Ellen’s father was my mother’s brother.
Ellen once gave me some very good career advice that you can love what you do or make good money at a job to do what you love. I never forgot that advice and have shared it often, especially with my children. She was always kind to me and I looked up to her.
I also remember seeing her refrigerator for some reason when I was younger and it was full of jello. I remember wondering why anyone would want that much jello. Apparently, that was how she satisfied her sweet tooth and kept her beautiful figure. I wished I could copy that at the time but I lacked the discipline.
The picture on this memorial page brings me right back to that time and some happy memories. I hope Ellen’s family and friends can dwell on their own happy memories at this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
She was my second non growing up. I remember this photo of her growing up in the all white room no one was supposed to go in especially Sandy. She will always have a place in my heart. I’m sure she lathed all the cheerleading trips she had to take with us
