||I was raised in the UP of Michigan, a Yooper! I have been a waitress, Bartender, Cook for most of my life, but also am a Beautician and florist. Love working with the public. I am a Grandmother of 4 beautiful kids. My daughter is 29, divorced and has a serious disability due to an industrial accident, so we help as much as we can. Its never enough though. I haved worked all my life with Epilepsy. I have moved dozens of times and have zillions of memories and have had many friends along the way. I live life the best I can, and with great determination to keep pushing on. I have a wonderful husband, 2 dogs and a bird. I hope someday to see Publishers Clearing House pull into my driveway! Its may only be a dream, but it gives me something to believe in! We love you Ellen and watch your show everyday if possible! I wish all television shows were like yours. You are nothing but happiness and it spreads thoughtout all who watch you! Thank you for being you Ellen! God Bless!
