Ellen Jo Grossman Goldenberg, age 83, of Quincy, died Sunday, May 10, 2020 at 9:15AM in Good Samaritan Home of Quincy.

She was born August 18, 1936 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Abram and Annette Kaplan Grossman.

Ellen was a 1953 graduate of Quincy Senior High School. She received her undergraduate degree from Drake University in 1957 and went on to receive a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from University of Illinois-Chicago and a second Master's from Northeastern University in Inner City Studies.

In her earlier years of employment she worked for the Cook County Department of Public Assistance and later, the Chicago Housing Authority. She went on to become an experienced Certified Travel Consultant. At one time, she owned and operated her own agency in Evanston, Illinois. Ellen moved from Chicago to the St. Petersburg, Florida area before returning home to Quincy.

As her career as a Certified Travel Consultant suggests, Ellen had a love of travel and had the
opportunity to take many trips abroad, several cruises, and plenty of domestic trips as well.

Ellen was a member of the B'Nai Sholom Temple in Quincy.

Ellen was preceded in death by her parents.

Memorials: B'Nai Sholom Fund for Valley of Peace Cemetery

Private graveside services will be held at Valley of Peace Cemetery.

I had the pleasure of knowing Ellen when she lived in Florida and I was her travel agent for many years. I had as much of an adventure planning her travels as she had taking her cruises and trips. We moved to Vermont from Florida in 2006 and Ellen visited us a couple of times before going into the nursing home. You were always a PIP Ellen.

Rest In Peace Ellen.
