Ellen S. Minahan

Minahan, Ellen S. (Conway) of Braintree, formerly of Weymouth, passed peacefully and entered the gates of heaven on February 14, 2024. She lived a miraculous life lasting 102 years. Ellen was born and raised in Brookline. MA, to the late John and Mary Conway. She was a graduate of St. Mary’s of Brookline. Ellen volunteered at South Shore Hospital and worked for several years for Alves Photo. She was a devout Catholic and a longtime parishioner of Immaculate Conception Church. Ellen was adored by those who knew her, she radiated pure love and kindness, and truly had an endless stream of wisdom. In her free time, you could always find Ellen immersed in one of her favorite mystery novels or a gritty drama. She had the voice of an angel and was a proud member of the Sweet Adeline’s Singing Group. She was a world class cribbage champion and you could always find her looking absolutely stunning wearing her signature pink lipstick.

Loving mother of Jack Minahan and his wife Maureen of Naples, FL, Patricia MacDonald and her husband Richard of Naples, FL, Dennis Minahan and his wife Debra of Duxbury and Nancy Taylor and her husband Greg of Pleasanton, CA.
