She is preceded in death by her parents, Herbert Paul Davis and Frances Taylor Davis, one brother, Timmy Davis and one sister, Brenda Cox. Ellen leaves behind her loving husband Oliver Gause of the home, three sons: Jeff Gause (Tammy), Jamie Gause (Dalina) and Buddy Gause (Danielle), all of Bladenboro, three brothers: Tommy Davis (Corinne) of Bladenboro, Bobby Davis (Lesly) of Elizabethtown, and Jimmy Davis (Wendy), also of Elizabethtown, and two sisters, Marie Jackson (Joe) of Bladenboro and Pam Taylor of Elizabethtown.

Ellen graduated from Mount Olive with a Business degree. She became a supportive veteran's wife who loved to bake and was the local cake delivery person. She was a loving sister, wife, mother, grandmother and soon to be great-grandmother. She loved working in the yard with her flowers, fishing, spending time with her kids and grandkids. Her favorite place was on the back deck just enjoying the outdoors. She was an avid golfer, 4-H leader for many years and a NC State Wolfpack fan!!!! Ellen enjoyed crafts, especially the last 15 years, making handmade ornaments. If you got one of her ornaments, you knew it was made with love. She sent an ornament to a Supreme Court Justice and even sent one to Former President Trump!
