Arrangements Are Made For Elli.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on September 11, 2008

Elliott “Elli” Reed
September 8, 2008

After her 20 day fight against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Elli earned her angel wings in the early morning hours of Monday September 9, 2008. Her strength and fight amazed all those who followed her difficult journey and she has been an inspiration to her family and friends.

Elli is survived by her parents, Brian Emmett and Cassi Erin Reed. Paternal grandparents, David and Shirley Reed. Maternal grandparents, Aaron and Teri Vorthmann. Paternal great-grandparents, Emmett and Phebe Reed and Dale and Darlene Florea. Maternal great-grandparents Dorsey and Patty Pope. Aunts and uncles include: Charles and Heather Linhart, Nathan Reed, Corey and Annie Vorthmann and Staci Vorthmann. Elli is also survived by many extended family members and countless friends.
Elli is proceeded in death by maternal great-grandparents Alfred and Bonny Vorthmann and paternal great-great-aunt and uncle Doyle and Arcile Payton. We are certain that they were all there welcoming Elli into their arms as she joined them in heaven.

We will be celebrating the life and journey of Elli with a visitation which will be held at Price Funeral Home in Maryville Mo on Friday September 12, 2008 from 6-8 pm. Elli will be laid to rest at a graveside service to be held in Treynor Ia at St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery on Saturday, September 13, 2008 at 11 am.

In lieu of flowers, donations are asked to be made in Memorial of Elli or to The Ronald McDonald House in memory of Elli.
