Roxanne Karis Ellis

Roxanne K. Ellis, 66, beloved wife of 38 years to Jim Ellis, transitioned to paradise in her savior Yahuah Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Glens Falls Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

She was born March 26, 1951 in Cambridge, NY to the late Robert K. and Ida MacNeil.

She loved nature, the trees, gardening and especially blueberry picking, her freezer was always full of them.  She was an all-around country girl, trips to Maine with her husband were on the agenda every year sometimes even 2 or 3 times a year.  Roxanne worked for Bates Industries in Glens Falls, where she enjoyed working with Chuck Bates.  Her dogs Betty and Buddy meant everything to her and they will miss her.  Roxanne loved everybody and in return they loved her.  Ed Perkins her former pastor of the Bachur Fellowship in Salem was dear to her heart, now they are together in the third heaven.  Cooking was one of her specialties very fitting, because her husband loved to eat.

She is survived by her loving husband Jim Ellis of Salem; brother Richard (Linda) MacNeil, Ronald (Barbara) MacNeil, Randall MacNeil; sisters Roberta (Ted) Johndrow, Rebecca, and Rosalynn (Michael) DeGroat; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
