    What a beautiful woman! Ellen was so loved and adored, especially by her children. I am so thankful for the time I had with her when she visited Florida and Mike and I visited Utah, as well as phone calls and zoom calls. I will always be grateful for Ellen and Thayne for giving me Mike. I truly enjoyed her and she will be very missed.

    I got to know Sister Brower in 1993, when she sewed my wedding dress. She was so kind to me, and talented. She really made an impression on me of someone I’d like to grow up to be! She was generous and kind, and I’m sure will be remembered fondly by many

      Ellen will be greatly missed—she has been my dear friend and neighbor. Ellen served as a trusted counselor to me when I was a Relief Society president. She was wise and compassionate, but also had a sense of humor and an optimistic outlook on life. Thayne and Ellen have always made us feel like part of their family. Kevin and I love them both . If passing from this life to the next is considered a graduation, I am certain that Ellen graduated with honors! 💕

    An Amazing Woman! Thats how I feel about my Aunt Ellen. She was always so kind to me. That didn’t change when I saw her last week. She talked to me, laughed with me, told me I had grown into a beautiful, kind and loving adult (A far cry from my teenage years). I am so glad that I got to spend time with her before she left us. I will hold on to those memories for ever. I love you and can’t wait to see you again.

She was always will to help, made my girls dresses for a family wedding, so appreciated her help. We will cherish our friendship, we love the family and the fun times we had horse riding.
