Jeanne Marie Ellenson

Jeanne Marie Ellenson passed away peacefully on June 18, 2017, in Orlando, Florida, after a long illness.  She was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, to Marie and Joseph Center.  Prior to marriage, she was a flight attendant for National Airlines and a professional model.  She was a devoted wife and mother.  She was married to the late Gene Ellenson for 44 years.  She enjoyed his career as a much beloved football coach for the University of Florida and always enjoyed cheering on the Gators.  After Gene’s death, she remarried Thomas Scott and they enjoyed ten happy years together prior to his death.  Jeanne loved animals and was a pet mama to many dogs in her lifetime, who will be waiting to greet her at the end of the Rainbow Bridge.  Jeanne was predeceased by both of her husbands and her parents.  She is survived by her children, daughter, Donna Mikulski and husband Ed, son, Eugene Mark Ellenson, grandson, Andrew Rivera, step-daughters Barbara Johnson, and Debbie Scott and her cousin, Doris Armstrong.  In addition, she is survived by her long-time caregivers, Norma Picard and Claudia Banton.

I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

At John 5:28, 29, Jesus said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” This means that all the dead in Sheol, our loved ones included, will come back to life. Acts 24:15 reveals more about this grand event, stating: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” So even “the unrighteous,” many individuals who did not know and serve Jehovah, will get a future opportunity to gain God’s favor. Psalm 37:29 states: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” Just some comforting words.
