Ellamae Farden was born May 10th, 1934 in Tilden Twp., Polk County, MN to Walter and Florence (Cote) Farden.  She attended country school in Red Lake Falls.  On June 1, 1954 she married Ludger Longtin.  Sadly, he passed away in 1999.  The couple was blessed with 7 children.  After many military moves, they claimed Crookston as their home in 1969.  Ellamae was an active member of the Cathedral of the Immaculate of Conception in Crookston, Catholic Daughters, and Red Hats.

Ellamae enjoyed quilting, knitting, crocheting, embroidering, and many other crafts.  Because she was so generous, many people were the recipients of her beautiful handiwork.  Over the years she volunteered many hours at the hospital, Golden Link, her church, and schools.

Ellamae is survived by her 7 children, Barbara (Thomas) Chapman, Baxter, MN; Thomas (Debra) Longtin, Waukesha, WI; Patrick (Dorothea) Longtin, Macomb, MI; Steven (Robin) Longtin, Sunapee, NH; Greg (Judy) Longtin, Harvey, ND; Eric (Julie) Longtin, North Branch, MN; and Matthew (Julia) Longtin, So. St. Paul, MN; 13 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; one sister, Kathy (Wayne) Schantzen, Thief River Falls, MN; and one brother, James (Nelda) Farden, Golden, CO.

Ellamae was preceded in death by her husband Ludger; brothers, Walter, Jack and Daniel; sisters, Jeanne, Shirley, and Patricia and one grandson, Jonathan Longtin.
