Ella Mae Motta (Ellie) 69 years old, of Burlington, Wisconsin, passed away on June 9th, 2023 at Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington, WI.
Ellie was Born on December 11th, 1953 in Cleveland Ohio to Nile and Jessie Barcalow. She lived much of her life in the Eastern Half of Ohio. She went to John H. Lehman High School in Canton Ohio. Ellie Married Thomas L. Motta on April 24th, 1974 in Beaufort, South Carolina.
Ellie was a loving wife, mother and grandma and is survived by her mother, Jessie Totten, her husband, Thomas L Motta, her son, Thomas A Motta, her daughter, Heather (Josh) Schueller, her grandchildren Jason and Jarad Schueller, her sister, Nila Dedmon, nephew, Johnny Dedmon III and nieces, Kathy Anderson and Zephyr Kobie.
She loved being a homemaker and being able to welcome her kids and husband home and hearing about their days. She was always interested in the details of her family's days and helping with homework when possible. Her love of reading was passed on to her daughter Heather.
Some of the things she loved were listening to music from the 50’s to the 80’s, reading (didn’t matter if it was the paper, magazine, or a good non fiction book – especially historical books), animals (especially dogs), being around family (when possible) and hearing from her son Tom A about how the teams from Ohio - Cleveland Browns, Guardians (aka Indians), Cavaliers, and of course the Ohio State Buckeyes (mostly their football) - were doing. Her favorite shows to watch were The Walton’s, NCIS, and Law & Order.
She is preceded in death by her Father Nile K. Barcalow, her Sister Nancy Anderson, and her Brother Clyde (Sonny) Winfield Barcalow.
A Visitation for Ellie will be held on Friday, June 16th, 2023 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (9600 W Grange Ave. Hales Corners, WI 53130) beginning at 3:30PM until time of service at 4:30pm, with a light luncheon to follow immediately after service. 5:30PM on Friday June 16th.
