Ella Mae Hoxit, 90, passed away Nov. 7, 2020.

Born April 17, 1930 in Jackson County, she was the daughter of the late Charlie and Ollie Mae Ashe. She had lived most of her life in Transylvania County. In addition to her parents, her husband, Glen; son, Ronnie (daughter-in-law Beth); brothers, Jessie (Edith), Edward (Nadine), Grady (Frances), James; and sister, Pansy (James Monteith), preceded her in death.

She is survived by her son, David (Linda); daughter-in-law, Joan; five grandchildren, Alisha, Brian (Susan), Matt (Michelle), Mikey, and Jonathan (Angel); two brothers, Paul (Rowena), and Randy; 14 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and sisters-in-law, Pat, Mary Jane, Mary Ann, Rowena, Lynn, Louise, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She and her husband, Glen, were married 68 years before his death in 2014. They both worked at Ecusta during their life. They traveled to many places, including visiting relatives in Washington State and Nevada. They traveled every summer and soon were called “The Road Runners.”

Known by many as “Miss Ellie,” she had a colorful personality and lots of friends, and never met a stranger. She was a classy little lady and will be missed by all who knew her.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday Nov. 10, 2020, at Blue Ridge Gardens of Memory.
