Ellen Elizabeth Starling, beloved daughter, sister, aunt, friend, died January 28, 2022, in Bradenton, Florida where she had moved several months ago.
She was born December 2, 1977 in Wooster, Ohio to Ken Starling and Susan Snyder Starling (now Beno).
Ellen thoroughly enjoyed her high school years at Wooster where she cheered for both football and basketball, played violin in the orchestra, edited the yearbook, and ran on the track and field team.   At Lynchburg College, class of 2000, she majored in communication studies, was a cheerleader and a member of Kappa Delta sorority.
Ellen loved her career as an event and wedding planner in various cities and excelled at keeping brides calm on their special day.
Many of those years she lived in the South Carolina low country, loving the warm weather.   But living away from Ohio did not keep her from cheering on her beloved Ohio State Buckeyes.
More recently, Ellen returned home to Wooster for several years, and her friendly, out-going smile greeted friends and others as she undertook various positions.   During that time, she helped care for her father during his illness, all the while bravely and courageously facing her own struggles.
Ellen is survived by her mother and stepfather Susan and Jack Beno of Wooster, sister and brother-in-law Beth and Brad Keck of Wadsworth, and niece and nephew Edie and Joseph Keck. Ellen loved being their aunt and would often declare Edie to be her favorite person in the whole world.   Survivors also include aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. Her father, Ken Starling, predeceased her as did her grandparents, Verne and Juanita Snyder and Walter and Jean Starling.
Zoey was among many dogs and other animals rescued, loved and cared for over the years by Ellen.  Donations in Ellen’s memory may be made to Wayne County Humane Society, 1161 Mechanicsburg Road, Wooster OH   44691.
