The Ella Elizabeth Horst Thomas Memorial Fund 


Beautiful, brilliant, and all too briefly with us, Ella Elizabeth Horst Thomas died on January 23, 2018 at the age of 24. Throughout her short life Ella was known for her loving heart and generous spirit, as well as her quick wit and feisty personality. She had a passion for helping others, especially children, and a soft spot for dogs, including her beloved Mickey. All those fortunate enough to have known and loved her will miss her tremendously, especially her mom Martha, dad Chris and brother Solomon.



Here is an article her brother Solomon wrote about Ella: Solomon's Essay about his Sister Ella


  • The Coppell Middle School North community of teachers,staff, students and families would like to celebrate Ella's spirit and life through a small memorial space in her name.
  • We envision an outdoor space with trees and a bench, a place to rest, reflect and enjoy the outdoors and will work with the family on the final design.
  • Please join us in celebrating the life of Ella through a donation to the memorial fund. Ella was a much loved student at North and her mom Martha Thomas is a much loved current teacher.
