In Memoriam Remembering Ellen Gee. January 29, 1950 – November 3, 2002, in the Canadian Journal of Sociology Online, 2003
— Susan McDaniel
Ellen Gee was a renowned SFU sociologist and Chair of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology until her untimely death in 2002. She was an authority on Canadian demography, the sociology of aging and the sociology of family, with over 100 scholarly publications in these subjects. Ellen was the heart of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology which she chaired for more than six years. She left an indelible stamp on the Dean of Arts office where she served as Associate Dean for four years. Her loss is deeply felt in our First Nations programs and in Gerontology where her ongoing involvement made a real difference. Ellen meant a lot to a lot of people.
