Ellen was born on December 7, 1951, in Wichita Falls, TX to Charlie and Louise Guffey.

Ellen was preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Louise Guffey; and her brothers, Howard, Larry, and Gary (Butch) Guffey.

Ellen is survived by three brothers, Charles Guffey, of Houma, LA, Gene Guffey, of Dallas, TX, and Carl Guffey, of Amarillo, TX; and three sisters, Barbara Wolfe, of LaVon, TX, Fran Whistler, of Plano, TX, and Millie Bingham, of Amarillo, TX. Ellen leaves behind a daughter, Brandi Smith and husband Matt, of Wylie, TX; son, Jake Sloan, of Amarillo, TX; daughter, Shiloh Stanley and husband Cole, of Amarillo, TX; son, Heath Sloan, of Amarillo, TX; and daughter, Linda Ramirez and husband Juan. Ellen was blessed with thirteen loving grandchildren. Ellen had so many nieces and nephews that loved her very much.

Ellen worked for Marty’s from the time they opened until they closed, over 25 years. She was known as “a professional hostess and server. Many of her customers referred to her as “the best server” they ever had. After Marty’s, Ellen worked for United Super Markets and Walmart.

Ellen had an infectious smile and a heart bigger than she was. She was known for taking in stray dogs from the time she was a little girl and continuing through her adult life.

Growing up with six brothers and three sisters, Ellen was the baby, and she took advantage of being number ten!!!

Ellen lost her battle with cancer but what a fight she put up! She told the family “I have a few more things I need to do so I will go out fighting this dreadful disease.” And she did to the end!!!

While our family will miss her dearly, we know there was a celebration when The Good Lord called her home. There to meet her at the Pearly Gates was Mother, Daddy, Howard, Larry, and Butch asking, “What took you so long to get here?”

Until we meet again, Rest in Peace with no more pain.

  1. I remember how much you loved your children, which was something I could not truly understand until I had my own. I was saddened to see you were fighting cancer, but what cancer doesn’t know is that you STILL won. I know it must be stunning where you are. In any case, it was my pleasure to know you, Mama Bear. Love and light to you and your family. I am sorry this is delayed.

  2. Sweet, kind, encouraging, and peaceful. Our family always thought a lot of Ellen. I remember when she fell in love with Paul and she told me about notes they would exchange. She was so…giggly! She fought the good fight and now is with Jesus, in heaven, the best place anyone could be. Praying for you guys in the coming days and months and even years. Grief never goes away, it just takes on a different form. But it’s a reflection of a great love that we were blessed to experience in our lifetime. Love you guys and gals.

  3. Miss and love you Mom. I am so glad you don’t have to endure any more pain. Give my granny a big hug and kiss.
