Ellen was born to William “Bill” Condon, Jr. and Antoinette “Toni” (Schutz) Condon on August 10, 1981, in Omaha, Nebraska.  Ellen was raised in Ralston, Nebraska, where she attended St. Gerald Elementary, and St. Joan of Arc and Ralston Middle Schools.  She continued on to Ralston High School and graduated in 2000.  She enjoyed playing softball from middle school through high school, then mixed league.  Ellen was close with her extended family, enjoying camping, racing, and family gatherings.

While she was in high school Ellen decided that she wanted to be in law enforcement.  During her junior year of high school, she spent two weeks training with the Nebraska State Patrol in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Upon graduating from high school, Ellen worked several loss prevention jobs, including Oakview Mall Security and a Loss Prevention Officer at Younkers.  She continued her education at Metropolitan Community College, taking night classes while still working full time jobs.  After graduating from MCC with her Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice, Ellen worked as the Head of Loss Prevention Younkers in Sioux City, Iowa.  She lived in Sioux City approximately one year before she realized she missed Omaha.

She moved back to Omaha and started her career at Douglas County Corrections January 2, 2007.  Working at DCC as a Corrections Officer she met many lifelong friends.  Ellen worked in many roles for the county, including Chaplain. On December 2, 2009, she received a promotion to Corporal.  She worked at Douglas County until May 2021, when she became too sick to continue.

In May of 2015, Ellen and Kyle met thru mutual friends.  They got married October 1, 2016, in Bellevue, Nebraska.  They enjoyed traveling together, including trips to Nashville and Steamboat.  They lived in Louisville, Nebraska, until Kyle got tired of her complaining about the bad drivers on Highway 50.  In April of 2018, they bought their house in Gretna, Nebraska, that they made a home with their beloved dogs.

    Her vivacious spirit, the way she sparkled when she saw someone or something she loved, the way she left such an imprint on all of us. My heartfelt condolences to Kyle, her entire family, those she served with at County and the tons of friends she left behind. Love you Ellen….Mama Cathy

    Oh Ell… it wasn’t supposed to end this way…
    I’ll miss your wit, your love and pure joy of cows, that genuine belly laugh, those beautiful green eyes, your love of children (especially mine) and a shared history and kindredness that only we knew.
    Rest easy Auntie Ell. I’ll miss you, dearest. Hug Codge and Old Girl and Mark from all of us.

    Much love to Kyle, Toni, Tank and Billy during this time.
