Memories of "Grandma Stellie"

Contributor: dvdmovieking Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Estella Charlotte Cornaby Ellison is my maternal grandmother. Her only child, Carole, is my mother. My sister, Holly, and I are her only grandchildren. We spent a lot of time with Stella. I can remember staying at her home for as long as a week at a time on many different occasions. She was an immaculate housekeeper, an amazing cook and fabulous laundress. I never, ever, remembered anything being out of place at her house. If she had a few dirty dishes but did not want to wash them for a bit she hid them under the kitchen sink in a plastic dishpan. She entertained her brothers (Wayne, Sterling, and Bob Cornaby) several times a week by serving them coffee at her kitchen table. Their wives would not let them drink coffee at home! I soon became fast friends with my great uncles. Mealtimes were a festive occasion! I learned to cook my favorite foods from Grandma: fish, macaroni and cheese, and corn fritters. She fed me so well that my mother threatened to "Roll me home" after spending a week with her. She entertained us by letting us play with my mother's old toys in the basement, letting us "swim" in a pool in the back yard (a blow-up wading pool complete with bubbles). She would sing songs to us and the ones I remember most are ,"Little Purple Pansies," and "Come Little Leaves." I can just hear her singing and I would cover my ears and scream, "Please don't sing!." I hope my grand daughter is not as naughty as me. The house was in Provo at 160 South 600 East. It was made of red brick and I can remember calling it a fat house. My residence at the time was a single wide trailer in Green River, Utah, so I guess her house was pretty fat! My mom had her tend me and the dog (a pommeranian named Tawney) when I was a toddler. There was a terrible thunderstorm one day and my mother came to pick us up. She could not find us anywhere. Finally she discovered all of us (me, the dog, and Stella) hiding in the hall closet---so the lightening did not get us! Stella loved Halloween. She got all excited to answer the door and hand out candy to the children. I never remember a costume, but she always scared the kids when she smiled and revealed a mouth full of nasty "Billy-Bob" teeth! Grandma Stellie loved beautiful dishes, clean houses, good food, and well behaved children. I think I am turning into her. Jeannee Lasson Hunt

Life timeline of Estella Cornaby Ellison

Estella Cornaby Ellison was born on 9 Dec 1904
Estella Cornaby Ellison was 12 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Estella Cornaby Ellison was 35 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
