March 1, 1934 ~ April 15, 2019 (age 85)

On April 15, 2019, Ellen Wylie Pelton, loving wife and mother of five, passed away in Summerville, South Carolina.

Ellen was born March 1, 1934, in Glasgow, Scotland, to George and Dorathea [Hall] Munro. Ellen graduated from St, Anthony’s Govan, Scotland. On April 7, 1958, she married Paul Pelton at Saint Quivox Catholic Church in Prestwick, Scotland.

Ellen worked at Elder Cottage Govan Hospital from 1953-1954, in New York as a Nanny, and at Prestwick AFB and Rhein Main AFB. She taught her children to be honest, giving, faithful, and strong. Ellen and Paul lived their motto "You and Me against the world" to the fullest. She passed peacefully at home which would not have been possible without Intrepid Hospice and the loving care of Lorraine’s Helping Hands.
