CALIG: On Wednesday, February 10, 2016, Ellen Calig. There is nothing like a mother’s love and no one loved her children more than Ellen. Born on January 9, 1940, she was the daughter of Donald and Dorothy Israel and the beloved sister of Roslyn Shore of Atlanta, Ga., and Fran Schreiber (Marvin) of Allison Park, Pa. Ellen met her husband, Eliott, at age 13 when he pulled her from a sewer that she had jumped into after a ball, injuring her ankle. They married five years later and raised three children, Debbie (Kevin) Brode of Allison Park, Lynda (Greg) Theiler of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Jeffrey (Lauren) Calig of Cleveland, Ohio. She was the Grams, Bubba, Bubbie to grandchildren Danny, Matthew, Michael and Andrew Brode, Sarah and Rachael Theiler, and Gillian and Ethan Calig, all of whom she loved, spoiled and stalked on Facebook. Ellen was a passionate, energetic and engaging woman. Her house was the place where her children’s friends gathered for food, fun and a little counseling, where Steeler games were passionately watched along with every other major sports event. She then turned her energy to Linton’s, an upscale woman’s boutique. With her keen eye for fashion and gift with customers, she went on to become the buyer and store manager, traveling to New York regularly to buy clothes for the store and customers she loved. Our hearts are broken to say goodbye to the most giving Mom, best friend, best Bubba and devoted wife. We love her and miss her so much already. Rest in peace.
