Ellen Braveman slipped peacefully into eternity on Thursday night in Aptos,
California with her son, Stephen Braveman, and her daughter-in-law, Wanda
Braveman, by her side. She was 96 years old.
Ellen was born on March 4, 1925, in Boston to William and Anna Marsh. After
marrying Ted Braveman and having three children — Barbara Kimel (predeceased),
Pamela Taylor and Stephen — Ellen and Ted moved to the San Fernando Valley in
Ellen was an excellent student and loved learning. She was the sunshine that lit up
every room. Ellen loved all kinds of music and always took the opportunity to
dance and sing along.
She enjoyed many world travels. Ellen and Ted were dedicated members of their
Jewish communities, Shriners, Masons and City of Hope.
Family always came first to Ellen. After losing her husband Ted of more than 40
years, Ellen found love again with her partner, Jack Kaplan, who naturally became
part of the whole family.
Nana Ellen loved having her grandchildren Matthew Kimel, Ashley Dadon, Melo
Taylor, and Amanda Taylor around her. She also had the opportunity to know her
three great grandchildren: Hudson Dadon, Brayden Dadon and Ari Dadon.
Ellen leaves behind her daughter Pamela and her husband Chris Taylor; her son
Stephen and his wife Wanda; Barbara’s husband, Eddie Kimel; grandson Matthew
and his fiancé Mariana Leite (with a baby on the way); granddaughter Ashley and
her husband Barry Dadon; granddaughters Melo and Amanda and many cousins
who loved Ellen.
Ellen valued people making choices. Her favorite phrase was, “That’s why there
are so many-colored jellybeans.”
Ellen was blessed with a long and happy life. She will be missed by those left
behind and welcomed into the arms of those gone before her.
