JANE RUTH BLACK NOWAK

NOWAK, JANE RUTH BLACK Born to John and Jennie Ruth Black in Louisville Kentucky, Jane departed this life March 8th 2014.

SNELL, ELLEN

2014-04-13
ELLEN SNELL

SNELL, ELLEN When little Elen Rechnagel was trudging through South Dakota's winter snow to a one-room schoolhouse it is unlikely she ever imagined her life could be exciting. Born September 8, 1923, she was the only girl (four brothers) in the family of Hans Adolf and Mathilde Rechnagel. When Ellen was seven years old, the family moved to a small farm a few miles from Freeman S.D., where she completed her schooling through high school. Ellen dreamed of becoming a nurse, but at the time nursing was frowned on by many of the more conservative elders. So Ellen attended business college in Chillicothe, Missouri. Immediately after graduation she applied for a civil service job. It was the beginning of World War II, and the most exciting job was in Washington, D.C. By the time she arrived it was 1942. She was a secretary in the Navy Department. Her boss at one time was Gene Tunney, World Heavyweight Boxing Champion. Shortly after her arrival in Washington, Ellen met black-haired, hazel-eyed PFC James Snell at a party. They were married in 1943 at a Lutheran church in Washington. After a short deployment elsewhere, James was stationed as a honor guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier and became a corporal. Ellen's Navy job ended with the arrival of their first baby, Karen. Ellen soon returned to work, this time with the Association of American Railroads, and sensitive position during the war. As Secretary, she knew when, where, how, and why of troop movements. Clearance for such a position entailed FBI checking you out almost from the date of your birth. She worked there until 1945 when her husband was discharged from the army. James Snell had been a carpenter in the greater Detroit Area before his induction in the army and he was anxious to get back to his trade. His job in Washington with Railway Express just didn't do it for him. They moved to Wayne, Michigan in 1947. Ellen again went job hunting and found a job as a secretary to the head of Radiology at the Wayne County General Hospital. She remained there for 27 years, until she retired in 1978. Between jobs, moving and taking care of life's necessities, Ellen and her husband were blessed with three other children-boys. They had ten grandchildren, five boys, five girls. There is one great-grandchild, a girl. Ellen lost her husband on April 22, 1984. Ellen had joined the Golden Hour Club in 1979, and is one of the original members of the Bingo Committee. She has served in the kitchen and as club secretary twice. Ellen has also been on the Commission on Aging for twenty years. She has been a avid traveler with the Golden Hour Club and on her own. Her travels included: Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, and Nova Scotia. She has also been in all fifty states and has traveled extensively in Canada. Ellen's hobbies included painting, crocheting, quilting, reading, and walking. She attended St. John Lutheran Church in Westland. Funeral services for Ellen were March 10th, 2014 from St. John Lutheran Church and she was interred at Parkview Memorial Cemetery in Livonia.
