On April 4, 2021, Audrey Jean Ellis, loving wife and mother of three children, passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 91. Audrey was born on March 18, 1930, in Shelby, Montana to John and Irene Clinton.

Audrey had a passion for travel throughout her life and chose to make Arizona her home, where she met her husband, John (Jack) Ellis. They married in 2010 and lived happily in Sun City West.

Audrey is survived by her husband, Jack Ellis, two children, Daniel Hiatt and Diana Cline, two stepchildren, Jeff Perrine and Debbie Perrine, 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

Audrey and Jack belong to the United Church of Christ in Sun City West. Audrey's strong faith gave her comfort and, in the end, peace. She had requested her body be donated to Science Care. There will be no service at this time. Her beautiful soul will be missed by all who loved her.

A special thank you to our caregivers, Marie Contreras and Araceli Rosas, for their care and support.
