Welcome to our CaringBridge website for our incredible Ella. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Ella took her life on Sunday 10/25/20 and we are heartbroken.  Ella was extremely sensitive to what was going on in the world from the climate change to politics to racism to LGBTQ issues. She also fought anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, deep depression caught up with her, and her concern for the world was too much to bear and she decided to leave us.  
Ella was born Elijah Philip Major to Kris Norman-Major and Tom Major.  Marissa was 3.5 years old when Ella was born.  As a toddler Ella loved dress up, trains and anything musical!  By high school she was an avid singer, cross country runner and track and field competitor, a student of politics and history, talented singer and actor and, most of all, friend.  She had more friends than you could count.  She could often be found in the back yard with friends around a bon fire talking until 2 am, or engaging in Sunday afternoon rounds of D & D!  
She was incredibly musically talented playing the piano, guitar, violin and her most played instrument- her beautiful voice! Ella was studying music and history at Roosevelt University in Chicago. She loved classical music of all sorts, and was particularly fond of Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Beethoven, and Debussy.
Ella came out to the world as a transgender woman in July of 2020.  She was finally able to be herself and friends and family accepted her with open arms.
We can't believe we have lost our daughter, our sister, our friend.  Your support is more important than we can ever put into words.  Thank you.
