Born in Woburn, MA on April 24, 1939, Ellie was one of four daughters of the late Gunner and Helen May (McKenney) Ek.

Ellie graduated from Woburn High School. She was a locally well-known hairstylist, owning and operating the former Finer Cut Hair Salon which she opened in 1975, in Sturbridge. She enjoyed traveling, but her greatest passions were her family and her customers.
