Ellen Louise Vitt

December 1, 1952 — May 16, 2021

Ellen Louise Vitt

With her constant earthly smile, Ellen Louise (Taft) Vitt made a grand entrance into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ May 16, 2021, in her home surrounded by her husband and their three children. Ellen was born in Washington, DC December 1, 1952, a daughter of the late Gordon and Ginger Taft.

On June 26, 1976, Ellen married her husband of forty five years, Frank J. Vitt in Michigan City, Indiana and he survives along with their three children, Jacob Vitt of West Liberty, Ohio, Naomi (Brian) Solomon of Springfield, Ohio and Hannah (Brent) Hall of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Ellen was an incredible grandmother to Ali, Claire, Mia and Lydia Solomon and Madison, Olivia and Logan Hall. She is also survived by two sisters, Sue Genz and Kathy (David) Meade; a brother, Bill (Joanna) Taft as well as many extended family members.

Born with a love for music, Ellen learned to play the piano at an early age that would lead her to a forty four year stint of teaching piano lessons to hundreds of area children and adults. She found great joy in accompanying music groups such as the Chanteurs, the West Liberty-Salem School Choirs and musicals, community choirs/musicals and many church services at Grace Chapel Church where she was a forty four year long member, thirty five years of which she taught the five year-old Sunday School class.

She had a love for history as she and her husband restored and lived in one of West Liberty’s oldest homes for many years. Her knowledge of restoration helped her serve as an active member on the West Liberty Historical Society that is presently restoring the town hall.

The family would like to thank Universal Home Health and Hospice for their wonderful help and care of Ellen, the Grace Chapel Church and the community of West Liberty for their outpouring of love and support throughout this time.

The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20, 2021 and from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.  Friday, May 21, 2021 at Grace Chapel Church in West Liberty where Pastors Eric Mounts and Brian Solomon will officiate the funeral service at 11:00 a.m. Friday.

A lunch in will be provided and all attendees are welcome to attend so the family may celebrate Ellen’s life with you.

Inurnment will be at the Fairview Cemetery in West Liberty at the convenience of the family.

The staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in West Liberty is honored to serve the Vitt family.
