Ellen was a voracious reader, especially of newspapers, but she enjoyed her "love story books" as well. She loved to watch the news and staying up to date with current events. She was a self-admitted "Yellow-Dog-Democrat" and loved to discuss all matters political. She was a student of history and loved to go visit points of interest and historical importance. She was an avid seamstress, quilter, and needle pointer, and won many awards for her creations. She was member of the Red Hat Ladies in Gettysburg and loved to socialize with her friends. She was a member of the AAUW and League of Woman Voters.
Ellen was known for her honesty, good nature, sense of humor, and quickness to charity. She loved her family, and kept in close contact with many cousins far and wide. She was known to "adopt" her son and daugther-in-law's friends and many refereed to her "Mom."
Ellen was a woman of deep Christian faith, and was a member of The Cashtown/McKnightstown Charge of the United Church of Christ. She loved being a preacher's wife and was very active in the life of the church.
She is preceded in death by both of her parents and her beloved husband of 26 years, Rev. Charles E. Falk, Jr (d. 2004). She is survived by her only child, son Frederick C. H. Falk, his wife Lisa (Schroyer) Falk, and their children Charles E. "Chip" Falk (7) and Charlotte E. "Charli" Falk (5) and many cousins, friends, and "adopted" sons and daughters.
