Ellen Vandestraat Obituary
On November 21, 2023, Ellen Louise (Muir) Vandestraat, our endearing and precious mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend died peacefully in her home which overlooks the golf course in Sun City West, Arizona.
Ellen was born in Spirit Lake, Iowa July 13,1948. It wasn’t long after that when the family moved to Jackson, Minnesota. She enjoyed all the outdoor activities the different seasons had to offer.
After Ellen graduated from Jackson High School in 1966, she spent most of her years on the west coast and in Arizona, where she worked as a paralegal then later as a real estate agent in San Diego, California.
Ellen loved the ocean, spending time with her children and grandchildren and shopping.
Ellen is survived by her children: Enoch (Olga) Borozinski of Henderson, Nevada and Sarah (Mason) Hess of Desert Hills, Arizona. Her grandchildren: Vance and Maxeem and Ethan and Ava Hess. Her sisters Carla (Roland) Shearer and Sue Muir; along with many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents David and Lydia Muir, her former husband and father of her children Leonard Borozinski, her husband Herman Vandestraat, and her nephew, Matthew Sharar.
Ellen will be dearly missed but it is a comfort to know that she went HOME to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
