Verna Dean Taylor Ellis

January 17, 1934 ~ May 31, 2021 (age 87)

Verna Dean Taylor Ellis, a faithful wife and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Verna is well-loved by her family, friends, and neighbors. Thoughtful of her family, keeping them in her prayers continually. She wants you to know that your Heavenly Father loves you and she will be looking over each of you.

On Memorial Day, May 31, 2021, Verna passed away peacefully in her sleep. Verna goes to join her husband, Gene Ladell Ellis, in the heavenly paradise. We couldn’t find two people more deserving of a heavenly resting place. Gene is proud of the legacy that Verna has protected through their five wonderful children.

Growing up in Molton and Oakley, ID with a small tight-knit community caring for her community became a staple in Verna’s life. Naturally, she worked at Perry Elementary as a cook taking care of all the school kids for years. She is famous among her grandkids for making peanut butter, butter, and honey sandwiches, and tuna on toast. She loved her grandkids.

Verna loved and cared for her siblings, children, and grandchildren throughout her life and will be missed dearly. She was preceded in passing by her parents, husband, and sister, Shirley Taylor.

She is survived by her sister Vonda Hammer and her brother Clayton Taylor.

Verna and Gene’s legacy will live on with their five children: Carma Ellis, Craig (Tami D.) Ellis, Elden (Susan) Ellis, Brent Ellis, and Brian (Tami P.) Ellis; 17 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Verna will be saving a place for you with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Verna loved spending time with her family whether it was camping in the mountains, hanging out at parades, or visiting in person (sometimes virtually).
