Tribute & Message From The Family

DEDHAM----Ella Louise (Lundin) Porter, 88, a lifelong resident of Easton, passed away Sunday, July 5, 2020 at Newbridge on the Charles after a period of failing health. She was the devoted wife of the late Wallace E. Porter Sr.

A daughter of the late Eric and Anna (Anderson) Lundin, she was born and raised in Easton and was a graduate of Oliver Ames High School.

Ella fondly recalled her early years working as a waitress and was also employed as a medical transcriptionist.

She was a Girl Scout leader for many years and a longtime volunteer at the polls on election days. In her later years, Ella enjoyed playing bingo and cards and socializing with her friends at Elise Circle.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Karen, Jane, Wally, and Diane,
I was your mother's roommate at Hebrew Rehab in Roslindale Nov/Dec 2018. She was a lovely person and a wonderful roommate, despite the fact that we were both in much pain (I had just lost my husband and then suffered a very bad femur break right afterwards). Even though we didn't know each other well, in such a situation a real connection is made. I've thought of her often and extend my deepest condolences to all of you. Ellen Fishman
