Delaware, Ohio

Florellia “Ella” Long, age 83 of Delaware, OH, passed away Thursday, February 4, 2021, at her home in Delaware. She was born August 22, 1937 in Washington Courthouse to the late William and Nellie (Wilks) Burton.

Left to cherish Ella’s memory are her daughter, Lea Ann (Alan Gibbs) Long of Delaware; she was loved and cherished by her granddaughter, Amber (Tim Denton) Gibbs of Kershaw, S.C. and great-grandsons, Hunter and River Lee; sister, Helen Henry of Columbus; niece Karen (Doug Rich) Copper of Obetz, OH, several other relatives and friends, and special caregivers, Ethel and Katelynn Coutts.

Ella was a very sweet and kind person, who cared about others. She was a paralegal by trade, retiring in 2000 from Robbins, Preston & Beckett law firm in Columbus after more than 30 years of dedicated service. After her retirement from the law firm, Ella moved to Delaware, and went on to work for a while as a receptionist with Urgent Care, and for Walgreen’s in Delaware and Westerville. Ella enjoyed traveling, and taking pictures, crocheting, soduko, word search puzzles, watching television and movies, gambling in Las Vegas, taking cruises, reading, and listening to music. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family.

In addition to her parents, Ella was preceded in death by her special friend, James V. Long; brother, William Burton Jr.; sisters: Dorothy Kinsinger, and Florida Burton.

Due to the national emergency relating to the Coronavirus, the family has decided to postpone any public celebration of life services until a later date to be announced.

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center is honored to serve the Long family.
