Ellen Winkler Funeral Expenses

On Saturday, March 30th, Ellen was involved in a fatal car accident that sadly took her life. 

If you ever had the pleasure of meeting Ellen, you loved her, as she was one of a kind. She could brighten up every room just by being there with her infectious personality. She was the biggest OSU fan I have ever met, but her love for the Buckeyes still didn’t compare to the love she had for her kids. 


Jaime lives in Ohio with her husband and 3 children, seen below:


Bryan lives in Utah with his wife and 3 children seen below:


and Ellen resided in Texas. So there are a lot of moving pieces in this tragic event.

I started this fundraiser to help her children, Jaime and Bryan, offload the financial burden of making arrangements to bring Ellen home, and all the necessary travel expenses during this tough time. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.
