She loved her family deeply, sending cards acknowledging every holiday, birthday, anniversary, or accomplishment to all she knew. Mary Ellen was an excellent cook who kept a neat home. She was always put together, getting her hair done once every week. Mary Ellen was deeply rooted in her faith, attending Mass weekly. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her loving husband, Harry; grandson, Cristian; and sisters, Glenna Breig, Vera Breig, Norma, Breig, Betty Dickson, Agnes Glaser, Anna Mae Edgar, Grace Storer, Sr. Ruth Breig, OSF, and Patty Breig.
