Elvira F. Ellie Bossone, 72, passed away after a brief illness on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center.

Ellie was born in Utica on March 7, 1947, the oldest daughter of Amiello Moe and Fannie (Moretti) Bossone. She was educated in local schools and was a 1965 graduate of T.R. Proctor High School. She later attended the Utica School of Commerce. Ellie began her work career at Revere Shoes in the Mohawk Street Plaza, she later took a teller position at Oneida National Bank, and eventually retired from customer service after over thirty years from Bank of America. Following retirement, Ellie was employed for the Utica School System at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School as a teachers aide.

Ellie loved her home, especially her garden and was also a very accomplished photographer. Many of her photos are treasured by her family and friends.

Ellie will be sadly missed by her beloved sister, Paula J. Bossone, of Topsfield, MA; one aunt, Lillian Bossone, and many beloved cousins and friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her Mass of Christian Burial on Thursday May 2, at 11 am, at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel/Blessed Sacrament Parish. Private interment will be in St. Agnes Cemetery. There are no calling hours.

The family would like to offer their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Cardiac-Thoracic ICU at St. Elizabeth Medical Center for their efforts and care during this difficult time.

Paula, I'm in complete shock to hear of the passing of Ellie. I just talked with her last week.I had the pleasure of meeting Ellie and your wonderful parents from being patients of Dr. Chazin. Had a lot of memories of your Mom and Dad, visiting him when he was hospitalized. Your Mom reminded me of my mom, quite and always a smile. Ellie was a very special person, once gave my mother a ride home from the office. I certainly will miss talking with her and seeing her on facebook. With my deepest sympathy to you at this time.

Dear Paula and family, I was so shocked and distraught to hear of my sweet friend Ellie’s passing. I’m so glad we reconnected after so many years of knowing her through my family members. She worked with my mom Vera also who was so fond of her, but then again, who wouldn’t for she was such a kind and beautiful person. So very sorry for your loss and want you to know how often she told me “God bless my sister, she is so good to me, don’t know what I would do without her” This life is at such a loss without this beautiful person in it😢 Cheryl Mondi

Dear family of Ellie - My husband and I met Ellie during our time together at Norstar Bank and later Bank of America. She ALWAYS had a smiling face and welcoming demeanor. We had many occasions to laugh and chat together over the years. I had recently run into her a few times in the last year or so and thought she still looked beautiful and maintained her shining personality. She will be missed but we were blessed to have known her and call her friend.
