Ryllys Eleanor Ellis (nee Bristol), 86, of Huron, passed away peacefully at Stein Hospice on March 30, 2018 after a brief illness. Ryllys was born on September 11, 1931 in Sandusky, and spent most of her life in the Berlin Heights/Huron area.

Ryllys and her husband Richard have managed the Ruggles Beach Bed and Breakfast since 1974, within which time she was also treasurer of the Ruggles Beach Homeowners Association. Ryllys expected excellence in herself and inspired all who knew her to do their best. She was an avid reader who encouraged her family and many generations of local children to love books and education. She also enjoyed walking, beachcombing for lucky stones, and spending time with friends and family. Ryllys was a generous and devoted wife, mother, and friend. She is survived by Richard, her loving husband of 63 years; her son Scott, daughter-in-law Nani Kadrichu, and granddaughter Maya, of San Carlos, CA; sisters Rachel Sculac (husband Robert) of Olmsted Falls and Reta Stark (husband Jim) of Norwalk; brother Roger Bristol (wife Joyce) of Austin, TX, and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Roy and Cordelia (Luteman) Bristol, sister Rose Acord, and brothers Roy Jr., Rex, and Randolph.

I remember Mrs. Ellis so fondly from the Berlin Heights Library when I was in high school years ago. We'd stop in after school and she was always so kind, friendly, and helpful. She gave me a recipe for making hard candy--all colors and flavors--which my siblings and I made at Christmas for a number of years...probably until I moved away. Although I haven't made the candy in years, I think of her whenever I remember "Christmases past" at home in BH. Peace to you all, Sandy Vartorella
