Grace Ellinghause

Loan manager

October 15, 1990

Grace Ellinghause, who retired 30 years ago as a loan manager for Commercial Credit Corp. in Baltimore, died Wednesday in Boulder, Colo., after suffering a stroke. She was 94.

A native of Baltimore, Mrs. Ellinghause had been living in Boulder for the past 12 years.

The former Grace Bateman attended public schools in Baltimore and Jacksonville, Fla., and was a 1913 graduate of Polytechnic High School in Marysville, Tenn.

After the death of her father, Rev. Robert J. Bateman, in the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, the family moved back to Baltimore.

Mrs. Ellinghause worked as a loan officer for the Ayers Loan Corp. from 1943 to 1956, when it merged with Commercial Credit. She retired in 1960.

After her retirement, she worked as a volunteer with the Little Sisters of the Poor and with the Red Cross at the Baltimore Veterans Administration Hosptial.

She was married in 1919 to Fred W. Ellinghause Jr., a department store executive who died in 1961.

Surviving are a son, Fred W. Ellinghause III of Boulder; two grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.

Graveside services were held Friday at Green Mountain Cemetery in Boulder. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Golden West Foundation, 1055 Adams Circle, Boulder, Colo. 80303.
