Obituary for Ellen Hise
Ellen Taylor Hise, 73, of Golconda passed away Saturday, January 2nd, 2021 at her home north of Golconda. She was born October 12th 1947 in Carbondale, Illinois to the late Curt and Alice Taylor formerly of White County, Illinois. Ellen was the middle child with an older sister, Martha Bormann of Metropolis, and a younger brother Tom of rural Golconda. She attended elementary and high school in Golconda and graduated from Pope County High School with the Class of 1965.

In 1967, she received an associate’s degree from Southeastern Illinois College in Harrisburg. She transferred to SIU in Carbondale later and completed her BS in Elementary Education. After graduating, she married her high school sweetheart, Gary Hise, from Robbs, Illinois. Ellen and Gary had two daughters, Allison Green of Jasper, Indiana and Hillary Gee of Carmi, Illinois. Through the years she was blessed with five grandchildren, Carlie, Allie, and Oakley Gee of Carmi, Illinois and Paige and Kate Green of Jasper, Indiana. She loved being called “Grandma.”

She devoted 30 years of her life teaching junior high at Pope County Elementary. Her students loved her as a teacher and wrote so many favorable comments when they found out about her illness. “Mrs. Hise was always smiling or laughing and brightened any school room she was in.”

She is survived by her husband Gary of 53 years, her two daughters Allison (Keith) Green and Hillary (Andy) Gee, nephews Tyson Bormann of Metropolis, Dr. Clint Taylor of Carmi, Jess Taylor of Paducah, Kentucky, one niece Abbey Kaylor of Metropolis, her sister Martha, and brother Tom (Janet). She is also survived by hundreds of students whose lives she touched. Ellen is preceded in death by her parents and her brother-in-law Boyd Bormann of Metropolis.

A private graveside ceremony will be held at the IOOF Cemetery in Golconda.
