She was born on November 23, 1919 in Benton Ridge, Ohio the first child of Daniel and Ruth (nee Freed) Ridge. She was a 1937 graduate of Benton Ridge High School and a 1941 graduate of Findlay College.
On May 24, 1941 she married Warren W. Clark, who preceded her in death in 1992. Sadly, Mary Ellen and Warren’s only child, Thomas L. Clark passed away in 2015. In October of 1992 she married John A. Budd, who also preceded her in death.

Mary Ellen was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved entertaining family and friends and decorated and celebrated every holiday with gusto! She and her first husband, Warren, celebrated 50 years of marriage, residing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In retirement, they spent winters in Port St. Lucie, Florida and summers in Huron, Ohio. She was a loyal volunteer having served over 4,000 hours of service in the 1960’s and 70’s at West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. Mary Ellen especially enjoyed teaching her grandchildren about beach glass and lucky stones on the shores of Lake Erie in Huron.

She had an extensive collection of teddy bears given to her by her second husband, John, during their marriage. Mary Ellen moved to Ashland, Ohio at Brethren Care Village in 1998 and enjoyed a very social life with other residents.

Mary Ellen was a 1999 charter member of the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. as both of her husbands and her brothers served during the war. She was extremely dedicated and proud of this element in her life. She was a member of Christ United Methodist Church in Ashland.
