Ellen (Mearsheimer) McDonald went with God this past Saturday July 14, 2018. After having bravely battled cholangiocarcinoma for 18 months, she passed peacefully in the arms of her husband Tim, her daughters, Caroline and Megan and her brother TJ at Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, NJ. Ellen leaves all of us broken-hearted but we are strengthened by the many wonderful memories she has left behind.
Born on October 10, 1961 at Phelps Hospital in Tarrytown, NY to Col Thomas Mearsheimer and Ruth (Baumann) Mearsheimer, Ellen grew up in Croton-On Hudson, NY. The Mearsheimer Family was a pillar in the Tarrytown community for decades and, being the youngest of five, Ellen left a lasting mark on her hometown. She was an outstanding student and an extraordinary athlete throughout her time in Croton and graduated from Croton Harmon High School in 1979.
