In Memory of Pati Alexander and "Queenie" Rena Lawson Evertt 


In memory of a beloved member of the community and our Ellis Center family, we have created the annual Queenie award.  Friends, colleagues and family have donated in her honor for the years since she passed to the Ellis Center where her granddaughter, Adair, attends school and has grown and thrived.  

This year’s Queenie award winner, Pati Alexander was also an impactful part of not only the Atlanta community but the Ellis Center family as well.  We cannot begin to measure the way that she touched so many families, and we privileged to offer the opportunity to highlight her career and life.  

Whether you are a friend of Queenie or Pati, or just a friend of the Ellis Center, please leave your remarks below in honor of these amazing ladies that we can share with their families.  Additionally, you can donate on their behalf to continue our mission, supporting the families that we serve in Atlanta that both loved.
