Ellen M. Lonergan (née Walker) of Hawley, PA passed away suddenly on Sunday, March 28, 2021 at the age of 77.  She was a beloved mother, cherished sister and treasured friend.

Born in Scranton, PA, Ellen was a graduate of Blakely High School and Marywood University, where she received a degree in Dietetics, and made lifelong friends.

She and her husband, Bob, spent their early married years living in New York and California before settling in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania to raise a family.  Nothing was more important to Ellen than her three children and she made raising them her life’s work and legacy.

Having worked in the Poconos as a teenager, she said returning to Hawley felt like coming home.

Ellen was a talented artist, particularly in ceramics, and a skilled gardener.  She had impeccable taste in interior design and fashion.  She had a passion for horses and horseback riding and was a member of the Beaufort Hunt for many years, once hosting the start of the ceremonial hunt from her property.  Her love of horse culture extended to her much-adored corgis (most recently, Aubrey).

She will be remembered for her remarkable beauty and brilliant smile, her fun-loving spirit and sense of humor, her contagious laugh and above all else, the deep love she had for her family and friends.

Ellen is survived by her two adult children, Ellyne Lonergan (David) and Dr. Robert P. Lonergan, III (Paige); three grandchildren, Aidan, Cullen and Declan Lonergan; brothers, Thomas J. Walker (Janet), William M. Walker (Kathy) and Jeffrey S. Walker (Colleen); and five nieces and three nephews.  She will also be lovingly remembered by her cousins, in-laws and myriad friends.  She is preceded in death by Robert P. Lonergan, Jr., MD and their daughter, Meaghan E. Lonergan.

The funeral mass will be held Saturday, April 10 at 10 a.m. at Holy Cross Parish at St. Patrick’s Church 200 Delaware Ave., Olyphant, PA followed by burial at St. Patrick’s Cemetery and a celebratory reception at The Regal Room 214 E Lackawanna Ave., Olyphant, PA will follow.  Condolence messages can be left at the Frank T.
