The Love Kitchen is sad to announce the passing of Ellen Turner, one of the co-founders of The Love Kitchen. By her side the entire length of her hospital stay, was her twin sister, Helen Ashe. Ellen passed away at 11:17 PM on April 22nd, 2015, at UT Medical Center, with Helen and her family by her side.
A funeral and memorial service are currently being arranged by the family, who requests complete privacy while they work through this difficult process. Per Helen's request, The Love Kitchen will remain open and operating, as the twins' dedication to feeding the less fortunate will never fade. The Love Kitchen will be closed to the media this week as volunteers and recipients need some space to grieve together.
Complete details of services will be announced in the next few days. We thank everyone for their loyalty and support of the sisters, their family, and the organization that still holds their hearts, The Love Kitchen.
