Obituary for Ellen R. Conry

Ellen R. Conry, 91, of Belmar, passed away on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, with her family by
her side. Ellen, daughter of Michael and Mary (Jones) Doyle, was born in Newark, where she
lived most of her life.

She was a graduate of Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, Newark, and the College of
St. Elizabeth, Convent Station, where she earned a B.S. degree in Mathematics. After
graduating, Ellen worked for General Electric in Schenectady, N.Y. She returned home to
marry the boy next door, the love of her life, and raised eight children. Ellen was an active
member of Our Lady of Good Counsel parish and school. She enjoyed spending her
summers with her family in Belmar before moving there year-round in 2001.

Ellen was predeceased by her beloved husband of 62 years, Donald W. Conry, Sr., in 2014,
as well as by her siblings, Mary White, Ann Behan and Dr. Michael Doyle.

She is survived by her loving children and their spouses, Donald and Mary-Ellen Conry,
Maryann and Raymond Walters, Michael and Pamela Conry, Patricia and David Zaros,
Barbara and Dave Rhodes, Dolores and Ed Poppert, Jean and Bill Joyce, and Carolyn and
Dan Flint. She is also survived by 23 adored grandchildren, Donald Conry III, Joseph Conry
(Jonathan Sykes), Megan (Devin) Veca, Christopher (Erin) Walters, Michael (Tricia) Walters,
and Mary (Robert) Geary, Michael (Erin) Conry, Caitlin Conry, David (Debbie) Zaros, Melissa
(Anthony) Moussa, Stephanie (Dave) Lennon, Michael Paul Zaros, Katie (Ryan) FitzGerald,
Victoria Rhodes, David Rhodes, Julie (Alex) Deluccia, Brian Poppert (fiancée Nicole Trubin),
Kevin Poppert, Bridget Joyce, Billy Joyce, Daniel Flint, Thomas Flint, and Margaret Flint, and
17 cherished great-grandchildren, Aidan and Emma Walters, Owen, Timothy and Nora
Walters, Ryan and Catherine Geary, Grace, Ella and Alexandra Zaros, Sophia, Anthony and
John David Moussa, Charlotte, Patrick and Andrew Lennon, and Lillian Rose Deluccia, as
well as her sister-in-law Barbara Clarke and her husband Gerald, many nieces and
nephews, and close friends, the Zampetti Family.

Above all, Ellen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who
would never turn down a game of Scrabble. We are honored to have had her in our lives.
She will be sadly missed and never forgotten.

Visitation will take place at O’Brien Funeral Home, 2028 Hwy. 35, Wall, on Sunday,
November 3, 2019, from 2-6 PM. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Rose Church,
Belmar, on Monday, November 4, 2019, at 10 AM, with interment to follow at Gate of
Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover.

In life we are reminded that those with whom we come into contact have a beginning in advance of our meeting. It is in those unknown periods that we come to discover the roots of our new friends. There is always the past that complements the future. Having the pleasure of working with Don Jr. I came to know a most agreeable sort. I never questioned whence his heart and mind originated as I knew there were those before him who shaped his destiny. This begs the question: Can we know someone who we have never personally met. The answer is everyone time I was with Don, Ellen R. Conry was there too. In that respect I will miss her though in all her children she lives on. May the sun in her Heaven keep warm all those whose lives shine more brightly on earth.
