Maureen D. Ryan, 75, wife of Yonkers Raceway's long-time track superintendent, Ed Ryan, passed away peacefully last Wednesday (Feb. 6th), surrounded by family at her daughter's home in Boca Raton, FL.

Mrs. Ryan was predeceased by her parents, Daniel and Theresa (Bartletta) Carmody, and her sister, Eileen Carmody. She was born Feb. 26th, 1943, in Hoboken, NJ, where she was raised. Mrs. Ryan graduated from Sacred Heart Academy. While spending summers in Monmouth Beach with her family, she met her future husband. They were married in 1964, moving permanently to Monmouth Beach the following year.

Maureen Ryan was known for her gracious spirit and beautiful heart. She had an unforgettable smile and an enthusiasm for life that touched everyone in her presence. A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, nothing was more important in her life than her family. She was one of a kind, whose light, laughter, and love continue to guide us forever.

In addition to her husband of 54 years, she is survived by her children and their spouses, Erin Ryan and Nancy Segall of FL, Kelly and Felipe Benedit of Monmouth Beach, Kathrine and Philip Sciortino of Monmouth Beach, Tara and Ralph Beltran of OH and Edward and Elsa Ryan of Monmouth Beach, and all seven of her beloved grandchildren, Katelyn, Lauren, Philip, Thomas, Padraic, Isabel and Juliana.
