Will Ell Nebel Todd passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 80 on September 3rd, 2020. She was surrounded by her loving daughters, Katherine Todd Monjure and Will Ell "Lelly" Todd Childress and their spouses. She was predeceased by her husband, the love of her life, the late Richard "Dick" George Todd Sr., along with her son the late Richard "Ricky" George Todd Jr. Will Ell and Dick resided in Metairie in the home they built in 1970 and developed many friendships. She frequently referred to her neighborhood as "The Street of Dreams". Will Ell adored her grandchildren as they were the light of her life. She was affectionately called “Myee” by her grandchildren - a precedent after Kevin was born and began to speak. Mom would greet Kevin and say “Where’s my Kevin?”. From that point on she was “Myee” and loved hearing her grandchildren call her name. She was an outspoken and opinionated person, but generous to those she and her husband encountered that were in need. Will Ell is survived by her two children, Kathy Monjure and Lelly Childress, along with her six grandchildren, Kevin Monjure and his spouse Abbie Monjure, Elizabeth Childress, Rebecca Monjure, Mark "Richard" Childress, Emily Monjure, Matthew Monjure, and her sister Susan Nebel Nielsen and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
