She excelled at all things creative but photography was her true calling.

Her favorite destination was Africa to which she felt a deep connection and made several trips to the continent. Ellen was a kind and generous person, giving and loving to all of those in her life. As an avid dog lover she was never without at least one of her dogs and they often would accompany her on her travels. Ellen is survived by her sons Christopher, Kevin and Alex Weinress and 10 grandchildren. She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed.
A memorial service will be held in Santa Barbara,Ca on August 17. In lieu of flowers, Ellen asked that you donate to Aid For Africa www.aidforafrica.org .
