The 2017 Hospice Tree for Life is dedicated to the loving memory of Ellarose Carden by her family.
Ellarose Carden was born in Bogalusa on June 20, 1924. Her father was the first mayor of Bogalusa. Her mother was the daughter of Fritz Salmen of Slidell.
She was a beloved volunteer and avid supporter of
St. Tammany Hospital Hospice for more than 20 years and considered the staff and volunteers there a part of her family. She was the recipient of the hospice Blue Dove Award and often said, "Hospice gave me far more than I ever gave it." Ellarose and the Salmen Family Foundation have donated millions of dollars to charities, schools, churches and organizations throughout St. Tammany Parish.
Ella has positively impacted many peoples' lives with her strong personality, loving spirit and generosity. Her only hobby was to bring laughter and enjoyment to people - and she was very good at it.
