Elzora Zella Carter was born on November 18, 1936 in Little Rock, Arkansas to parents Belvie and Lilian “Lily” Nicely Carter.

Ellie has been married to Charles Rose for 29 years. They enjoyed living in their country home near Fosston. Ellie was the mother of six children, Robert Erno, Billy Joe Erno, James Joseph Erno, Roy Lee Erno, Tommy Dean Erno and Harold Ray Erno.

Ellie was known to greet everyone with “How are you doing, hon?” No matter what the challenges she faced, she kept her faith in sweet Jesus, the Lord almighty and her love of family and friends. She has cried and prayed for the people less fortunate and forgave those who didn't forgive.

She loved to garden and take care of her hosta plants and her flowers. She will be loved, cherished and missed. Though Ellie’s health changed recently, she was courageous and she fought the good fight. She was ready to take her journey to heaven.

She is survived by her loving husband, Charles, of Fosston; her children, Tommy Dean Erno, Roy Lee (Fay) Erno and their children, Samantha Tatman and Rachel Ostil; Harold Ray (Madora) Erno and their children, Jason (Jacque) Erickson, Brandi (Derick) Knutson, Clinton (Christina) Erickson, Annebelle (Nathan) Davies, Nicole (Adam) Pulay, Justin Herdina, Dustin Erno, David Erno; and other grandchildren, Sonny Erno, Dusty Erno, Nikki Erno and Kelly Erno.
