    Ellie Paige Ferko, precious baby girl of Malinda and Michael Ferko, was born into the arms of angels on Thursday, May 31, 2018, at Orange Regional Medical Center.
    Born at 39 weeks, she weighed seven pounds and was 20 inches long.
    Though Ellie never spent time with us on earth, she was much loved and touched many lives. She will never be forgotten.
    She is survived by her mom and dad; brothers Michael and Zane; her maternal grandparents Maurice and Sandra Geary; paternal grandparents Michael and Nancy Ferko; her paternal great-grandmother Helen Chervenak; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends; all who anxiously awaited her arrival.
    Visitation was held June 4 at T.S. Purta Funeral Home in Florida.
    A Funeral Mass was celebrated on June 5 at St. Joseph Church in Florida, N.Y.
    Burial was in St. Joseph Cemetery.
    Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Downs Syndrome Association Hudson Valley (http://dsahv.org/) or The Star Legacy Foundation (http://starlegacyfoundation.org/).
    Michael and Malinda would like to personally thank our nurses at the Rowley Family Birthing Center for all of their love, compassion and support during this very difficult time. We will be forever grateful.
    Funeral arrangements are under the direction of T.S. Purta Funeral Home.
