Obituary for Ellen K. Partridge

May 1, 1954 - December 21, 2016
Rockland, Massachusetts | Age 62


Ellen Kathleen Partridge, 62, of Rockland, Massachusetts died Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at South Shore Hospital due to injuries sustained in an accident. Her family was with her when she passed.

Born on May 1, 1954 in Quincy, Ellen was the second child of Ernest and Mary Partridge. She moved to Rockland as a very young child and graduated from Rockland High School in 1972. She worked as a cashier at Stop and Shop in Abington for the past eighteen years. She previously worked at WearGuard in Norwell and Electro Signal Lab in Rockland. Ellen was a friendly, generous soul and always had a smile or a kind word for everyone. Ellen enjoyed spending her time with family and friends especially her niece, nephews and grandnephew.

She was a master at crochet and created many beautiful and useful items for people in her life. It was highly unusual to see Ellen without her bag of yarn and her newest crochet project in tote. Ellen appreciated the Rockland Memorial Library; she visited every Wednesday to hold her weekly drop-in crochet group. Ellen was a member of the Rockland Democratic Town Committee and the VFW in Abington. She was a fan of the Boston Red Sox and loved her annual trip to Fenway Park with her brother and her nephews.

Ellen is survived by her dear mother, Mary L (Duggan) Partridge of Rockland, three loving siblings and (spouses): Christine Dion (Earl) of Norton, Maureen Bono (Stephen Sr.) of Whitman, and James Partridge (Kimberly Butman) of Rockland as well as six beloved nephews and niece Michael Dion of Ft Lauderdale FL, Stephen Bono Jr. (Cathleen Tarr) of Franklin MA, Christine Bono of Quincy MA, Brian Partridge (Elizabeth Golini) of Brooklyn, NY, Kevin Partridge of Rockland MA and Gregory Bono of Franklin MA. She is also survived by her long-time companion, Peter Cantwell of Rockland MA.
She is preceded in death by her father, Ernest E. Partridge.
