Ellen (Ellie) Cadder Putira, 85, of Manchester, passed away peacefully on July 27, 2019 with her family by her side. Born March 19, 1934 in East Hartford, CT daughter of the late Mae (Horan) and Robert Cadder.

She was an active member of Assumption Church in Manchester – volunteering with the Ladies Guild and yelling “Bingo!” most Tuesday nights. She is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years Francis (Frank) Putira and her five loving daughters: Mary Putira Snow of Manchester, Annie Gentile and her husband Thomas of Vernon, Bridget Bergeron and her husband Jeff of Ellington, Laura Walker and her husband Michael of Sayville, NY and Jennifer Peacock and her husband Jason of East Haddam. She was blessed with treasured grandchildren who brought her joy: Erin and Iain Snow, Dan and Brian Gentile, Sarah, Jenny, Joe, David and Kathy Bergeron, and Everest Peacock. She had the pleasure of her grandchildren’s spouses Samantha Gentile, Frank Levick IV, Pawel Chmura and Ashley Bergeron and was looking forward to welcoming a new grand-son-in-law Andrew Oliwa. Ellie was additionally blessed with her great grandchildren: Jackson and Marabella Gentile, Frank and Julius Levick and was looking forward to the birth of twin great-grandsons Chmura in October. She leaves behind a brother John Cadder of New Britain, CT who recently celebrated his 90th birthday which Ellie attended with family and friends. She is pre-deceased by her brothers and sisters: Robert and Thomas Cadder, Mary Bergman, Aggie Pomeroy, Ann Felber, and Kathryn Sawyer. Ellie put her faith and family first; friends were special and she saw the good in everything. Her home was always open to everyone and her smile and wit were her best features. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
