   She was born on January 11, 1933, at Mallory, a daughter of the late Arnold Andy and Ollie Jane Toler Belcher.

   Waiting to welcome her to Heaven was her loving husband of 53 years, Jack McDaniels, Sr.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by her step-mother, Ruth Belcher; infant siblings, Mamie, Louise, and Henry Belcher; brothers and sisters, Sebert Belcher, Goldie Mills and her husband, Homer, Belva Amburgey, Chris Spears and her husband, Benny, and Rufus Ray Browning; her parents-in-law, Price and Effie Ratliff McDaniels; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Virginia Huffman and her husband, Freeland, Lucy Brown and her husband, Dave, Glenda DeBord and her husband, Junior, Emmazell Sizemore and her husband, Clyde “Skinny”, Effie Bennett and her husband, Dana, Lavodise “Bobbie” Gillispie and her husband, Harvey “Bear Track”, Edgar McDaniels, Eddie McDaniels, Price “Mac” McDaniels, Marvin “Buck” McDaniels, and Edward “Butch” McDaniels and his wife, Linda.

   Ellie was a home maker, a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a lifelong resident of Landville.  She was also a lifelong member of Landville Freewill Baptist Church.  Ellie spent her life traveling and singing for the Lord.  Her hobby was working in her yard.  A practical joker, Ellie loved to laugh and her laughter was contagious and a joy to all around her.

   The family would like to thank the staff at Trinity Healthcare for their care and compassion especially Kelly Nelson.  A special thank you to her niece, Susie Bray and her great-niece, Cindy Brown for taking care of Ellie and for Cindy always cutting her hair.  We would also like to extend our appreciation to Rev. Butch Cobb and the Landville Freewill Baptist Church for their care and support for our mother.
