Coach Sosnoski Remembered

Ellen Sosnoski was a passionate coach who cared for her student-athletes as if they were her own daughters.  While Ellen has been taken from us much too early, during her brief time on earth, she touched the hearts and influenced the lives of scores of students in positive ways. Our prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Ellen’s family and with all of those who knew her and loved her. 
A celebration of Coach Ellen's life will be held 11:00 AM Saturday at the Elysburg Presbyterian Church, 320 W. Valley Ave., Elysburg.
