Obituary for Leslie Ann Ellis

Leslie Ellis, 73, of Muscoda, Wisconsin passed away Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at Lancaster Care Center. She was born on May 5, 1945 the daughter of Reuben and Dacia (Romaine) Johnson (Jurs), in Chicago Illinois. Leslie moved to southwest Wisconsin in 1999 and really loved the area. She had a life-long love of animals and nature, especially dogs, horses and rabbits. Years ago, she raised and showed dogs and rabbits. She had quite the success with one certain poodle at the shows. She would have liked to have been a veterinarian, and would have been great at it, but she said her math scores would have prevented that.
One of her favorite activities, in recent years, was to ride her wheelchair with her dogs down to the river in Muscoda and talk to campers and boaters there.
The most important thing to her was her faith in Jesus Christ. She attended Blue River Valley Church until her health prevented her from doing so. She enjoyed their visits while she was in the nursing home, as well as of friends and family.

Leslie is survived by her children: Tami Ellis of Cobb, WI, Tim (Elizabeth) Ellis Redding, CA, Jeff (Missy) Ellis, Folsom, CA; grandchildren: Zack and Zoe; step-grandchildren: Adreanna and Becca; brother Craig Johnson; many cousins, other relatives, and friends.

Leslie was preceded in death by her parents Reuben Johnson and Dacia Romaine (Johnson/Jurs) , Stepfather, Bud Jurs, and baby, Jason.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Blue River Valley Church, 1526 Church Rd, Muscoda, WI. The Pratt Funeral and Cremation Service is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences can be made at
