Esther Lavern Ellis, 94, of Amarillo, TX died November 2, 2020 after a short illness.

She was born Dec. 8, 1925 to Earl John Ellis and Lola May Thomas Ellis at their home in Stevens County.

She worked for many years as a nurse and a home healthcare nurse. In the early 1950’s, she was terminally ill with tuberculosis but was healed by God in a tent meeting conducted by Oral Roberts.
