Of Medfield, Massachusetts and formerly of Pittsford, New York, passed away on April 26, 2020, at the age of 90 due to COVID-19. Ellen was the dearly loved wife of Edwin Kinnen for 67 years and the proud mother of Susan (Scott) Wilson, Janet (Nathan) Pyles, Peter (Sheila) Kinnen and Andrew (Jackie) Kinnen. Also the beloved grandmother of eleven grandchildren, and sister of Mimi Kegerize, and Jane Miller. Born with a green thumb and a tender heart, her gentle and perpetually kind spirit will be missed by all.

Ellen was my co-worker at Kirkhaven Nursing Home in Rochester, NY. We job shared the Director position in Health Info. Management.
More than colleagues, Ellen became a special who was always good natured, kind and generous. She was known to place others
before herself. Ellen took her work seriously but she also loved to laugh and appreciated good humor. My sympathies to the family.
Ellen, may you rest in peace.
