Ellen is someone I first recall being with at Clarke.

She wore glasses. To me she looked like she was halfway between a nerdy look and a pretty girl look. I could never decide.

About the only thing I can recall about her is that sometimes people would purposely mispronounce her name by saying, "Duh - widdawich."

I don't recall having one single conversation with her. In high school, I believe she hung out with people like Anne Wetenkamp, and Jill Jansky.

To my knowledge, I have not seen her since graduation. She went onto college at UW Platteville. Eventually she got married and became Ellen Hoffman. I think she may have lived in Illinois for many years. But now it appears as if she and her husband have moved to Wyoming.

UPDATE - 6/18/07 - Thanks to Shannon Koch for providing this photo of Ellen from graduation day, June 4th, 1989. Diane Debauche is on the right in the top one.

When I think of Ellen I seem to remember her giggling alot :). She was really smart too if I recall.

I sat next to Ellen in study hall for a semester. Sophomore year I think. For some reason, we started passing dirty notes to each other. Like, really sexual, like those letters people write to Penthouse. Except maybe a little sicker. I think we had a notebook that we'd write in and pass back and forth. It went on for a few months, if I recall.

I thought Ellen was pretty cute, but we never seriously thought of going out or anything. We just wrote each other pornographic letters. No big deal.

Ellen actually lived in Switzerland and might still be there. She is an engineer for Caterpillar.

Ellen has been living in Japan for the last couple of years. I don't know for sure if it is a permanent thing or if she will be coming back to the United States anytime soon. I'm pretty sure they moved there due to her husband taking a job there.
