Welcome to the memorial page for

Maryellen F. Conway

June 10, 1951 ~ July 9, 2017 (age 66)


Maryellen F. (Bellingham) Conway passed away unexpectedly Sunday July 9, 2017 at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia N.H. She was 66 years of age.  Maryellen was raised in Brighton, MA and graduated from Saint Columbkille High School . Maryellen lived in Melrose, MA for over 40 years with her husband Wally and her three boys before moving to Pepperell three years ago.


What Maryellen enjoyed most was her time at Arcadia where she and her family have spent their summers for more than 20 years. Even bad weather couldn’t keep her away. Nothing made her happier than spending time on the beach, her reign as “Madam President” or enjoying her Ice coffee while looking out her window.


Maryellen loved a lot of things but nothing was more important than her family. Every moment of her life was dedicated to the love of her children and husband. She spent every day for nearly 50 years with the love of her life and best friend. Nothing made her prouder than talking about her boys to anyone that would listen.  Whether she was directing traffic in her fur coat for a speeding go cart, ironing shirts at a moment’s notice, watching ice races from a freezing cold ice track or just being a shoulder to cry on; there was nothing she wouldn’t do for her boys.


Maryellen is survived by her husband of 45 years Walter Conway, her 3 loving sons Scott, Christopher and Justin Conway. Her Sister in-law Sandra Cadigan of Reading, Sister In-law Diane Stella of Cape Cod, Brother in-law Roger Conway and his wife Carolyn Conway of Mansfield, many nieces and nephews and countless friends.
