Obituary

Ruby Elaine Eller was born June 21, 2016 in Wilkes County North Carolina to James Thomas & Izchel Eller.  She was in the advanced kindergarten class at Wilkesboro Elementary School.  She was fluent in both English, Spanish and also Chinese.  Elaine was an active little tot who attended ballet, gymnastics, swimming classes and loved singing.  She had also begun her career as a basketball player.   She was an awesome BIG SISTER and friend to her brother, JJ.  She was always thinking about him and would not accept a gift of candy, money, or whatever the case may be, without offering it to her brother first.  Elaine was his protector. 

Elaine was a “daddy’s girl” and her parents’ miracle child.  She and her dad, Jamie, were inseparable.  He was her very own super hero – not only in life, but death. 

She was preceded in death by her father, her hero and paternal grandparents, Jack and Janice Eller. 

She is survived by her mother, Izchel, her brother, JJ, maternal grandparents, Marco A. Martinez Perez and Rubisela Martinez, maternal great grandparents, Heliodoro Rodriguez, Celia Mellado, her aunts, uncles and a host of cousins.  

Funeral services will be held 2:00 PM Saturday, April 16, 2022 at Wilkesboro Baptist Church with Dr. Chris Hefner, Pastor Magdaleno Negrellos, Rev. Casey Walker, Rev.
