Deppest of condolences to Mary Ellen’s loved ones. Her and my mother Sarah Nice were good friends. My mom was on life support for ten days @ OVMC back in 2008. She never woke up but Mary Ellen was there everyday. Everyday praying and talking to her and sharing her strength with my family. My mother and I had been estranged for over 15yrs. Mary Ellen shared stories and her face was in many photos I found in my mom’s apartment. It was good to know that she was my mother’s friend. Peace to you Mary Ellen and tell my mom that I always loved her.

I am very sorry to hear that Mary passed away. I met Mary through my work on the ambulance taking her to doctor appointments. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends!

I will never forget Mary Ellen Cesar Dorn

she was a high school classmate. In her later years she was a very kind and humble lady. She was a believer in Jesus Christ. Although she in gone from this earthly life… I know she will enjoy her new home.
