Ellen A. Pyle, 68, of Fort Wayne, IN passed peacefully at home in the arms of her loving husband on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at 6:06 p.m. after winning her own three-year battle against Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer.
Ellen was born and raised in Tipton, IN by parents Arnold J. (Arnie) and Anna M. (Annie) Weber. Ellen had an incredibly happy childhood with a multitude of relatives and friends from Tipton, Sharpsville and Kokomo, IN. She moved to Indianapolis for a career in Human Resources and Executive Recruiting after graduating Indiana University, then to Los Angeles where she was an Apparel Industry Recruiter until Indiana drew her home in 1986. That is when she met her future husband, Kent, at a Colts football game. Their 1987 marriage entailed a permanent move to Fort Wayne, IN where they developed friendships they’ve held onto for 35 years. Besides raising her three boys, Ellen’s most favorite things in life were family, friends, music, dancing, sporting events, volunteering, her role as ‘housemother’ at Delta Tau Delta Fraternity (Miami University), substitute teaching at Homestead High School, and 17 years as an insurance agent for Wise Insurance Agency.
