Elizabeth A. Llewellyn

August 15, 1945 ~ November 21, 2018 (age 73)

 


On Wednesday, November 21, 2018, Elizabeth Ann (Ellison) Llewellyn, R.N., a beloved mother, friend, and nurse, passed away at the age of 73. She was born on August 15, 1945 (VJ Day) in Rugby, England, to Kathleen (Thorne) and Harry Ellison. She graduated from St Cross Hospital Nursing School in Rugby in 1967 and began working as a hospital nurse. That same year she married Steven Llewellyn and they raised two daughters. In August, 1974, she leapt over the big pond and moved to Southwick, MA, USA, with her family. A year later, she moved to Feeding Hills/Agawam, finding her true home for the rest of her years. She became a full time mom and homemaker who took great interest in her children and their activities. In 1987, she went back to nursing school to get a U.S. associates degree and graduated from Springfield Technical Community College Nursing Program in 1989. She began her nursing career again and throughout the years, held positions as a hospital nurse, a visiting nurse and a nursing trainer until her retirement in 2006. She was a natural caregiver and throughout her nursing career, she was one of the fiercest patient advocates you would ever meet. She enjoyed helping others and was always there to listen and help. She was the proudest of mothers and loved spending time with her girls. She loved to travel with them including trips to Florida, the Caribbean and numerous trips to England. She was sister to Margaret and a devoted daughter to her mother, Kathleen. Since 2013, she made several trips to see Kathleen, Margaret and her cousins, including the celebration of Kathleen’s 100th birthday in 2015. Throughout her life, she was a lover of a good book, Masterpiece Theater, a hot cup of Lipton tea (“oh, this is good”), Bailey’s Irish Cream, Cadbury chocolate, and LL Bean. She was a lover of dogs and had them throughout her life, particularly enjoying her grandpuppies when she no longer had a dog of her own. She was British to the core, known for her accent and her love of the royal family. She will be remembered for her kindness to others, her humor, and her ability to tell it like it was. She was predeceased in death by her father Harry. She is survived by her daughters, Anne and Judy, her mother, Kathleen, and sister, Margaret. She will be missed by the ladies of the Thursday’s Sisters Book Club and by her grandpuppies, Ralphie, Rosie and Opus. Calling hours will be held from 4-6pm on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at Colonial Forastiere Funeral Home, 985 Main St, Agawam, MA with a Celebration of Life service beginning at 6pm at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Trinity Health at Home (W Spfld MA office) at http://www.trinityhealthathome.org/trinity-health-of-new-england-at-home-ma or Our Companions Animal Rescue & Sanctuary at https://www.ourcompanions.org/.
