Ellen Cuda

          Ellen Cuda was a member of The Captains Women’s Association . . .
          and so much more.

     Ellie was born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1937, and graduated from The Masters School, Dobbs
     Ferry, NY and Bennett College, Millbrook, NY.  She proudly raised her three children in
     West Hartford, CT, before retiring to East Orleans and Boca Grande. Ellie died in 2010
     after a valiant battle with ovarian cancer.

     Wherever Ellie lived she dedicated herself tirelessly and wholeheartedly to volunteering
     in her community. The Wadsworth Atheneum, The Hartford Stage Company, The Hartford
     Garden Club, Eastward Ho Country Club, The Cape Cod Museum of Art, The Boca Grande
     Historical Society, Lemon Bay Golf Club, The Boca Grande Womens Club and Stephen
     Ministry were all blessed by her many talents.

     Ellie’s love of animals was legendary; from her first dog Mike and her horse, Longwood
     Lady, to her beloved wirehaired pointers, she brought happiness to all around her.

     She was an avid golfer, reader, gardener, cook, and lover of the sea. You could often find
     her walking at sunrise on Nauset Beach or Mill Pond.

     Her abundant generosity, strength, and grace inspired many. Ellie’s special gift was her
     ability to meet and love people just as they are. Through Ellie and her husband Richard's
     generosity, Cape Cod Healthcare built The Ellen B. and Richard S. Cuda Women’s Health
     Center and Garden at Wilkens Medical Complex.

     The facility offers comprehensive, state of the art diagnostic capabilities specific to
     women's needs. The garden offers a setting where patients and their loved ones may find
     peace and comfort.
