Ellie was a fighter from the very beginning. She beat all the odds stacked against her and lived for a beautiful 9 months. In her short life Ellie brought great joy to all those around her. We are heart broken at losing our sweet, beautiful girl, but we know that she is watching over us from Heaven this year for Christmas.

her loving parents,
Daniel and Michelle Haskin, Dubuque, IA;

her brothers,
Tobias “Toby” Haskin and Dimitri “DJ” Haskin, both at home;

her maternal grandparents,
Rich and Ann (Kelly) Gibbons, Dubuque, IA;

her paternal grandparents,

and Rose (Cliff) Hunt, Waterloo, IA;

her maternal great-grandmother,

her paternal great-grandparents,
Harold (Sharon) Haskin, Backus, MN,
Ruth (Gary) Lienemann, Nashua, IA
and Gene Murray, Waverly, IA;

and several aunts, uncles and a cousin.

Ellie was preceded in death by her maternal great-grandparents, Robert Gibbons, Gene and Elmerial Kelly; and her paternal great-grandmother, Jeanne Haskin.

Ellie’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Omaha, as well as Dr. David E. Kragenbrink and the nurse and therapists who made home visits, for all of their caring support of Ellie and her family these past months.
