Wauneta married her husband on May 4, 1957, in Colorado. They moved to Bruneau in 1983 and Wauneta resided there up until a month before her death.

We will always remember and admire mom for her love of life. She was fiercely independent. Mom had a few sayings she lived by: “Age is a state of mind.” And “You have to move it or lose it!”

Our mom is lovingly survived by her two sons, Bruce (Sherry) Ellington, and Dale (Goldie) Ellington. Her grandchildren Zachary, Chad, Erica, Alexander and Carley. Wauneta and Calvin were always very proud of their family. She was preceded in death by her husband Calvin Ellington in 2015.
