Alma R. McKay

AGE: 64 • Hazlet

Alma Rose McKay (née Conroy), 64, of Hazlet, passed away on October 13, 2017 after a brief battle with cancer surrounded by family and friends. Alma graduated in 1971 from Raritan H.S., and married her high school sweetheart James J. McKay, III in 1975. She was a lifelong resident of Hazlet and lived previously in Highland Park, Richmond VA, Roanoke VA, Atlanta GA, and Ridgefield CT. Alma cherished her family above all and was generous to a fault, always finding a way to comfort or aid someone in need. Alma was happiest near a pool or the ocean, but rarely in the water, since she preferred a spritz bottle. Alma was a renowned shopper, especially on the "Home Goods circuit", and was concerned before her passing about how the economy would survive her loss. Alma passed to the Margaritaville in the sky, where the Pinot Grigio and Bloody Mary's never give you the "flu" the next day, and the filet mignon is always served perfectly. She is survived by her husband Jim, daughters Deanna and Jennifer McKay, son Daniel Polanco, brother Harold Conroy of CT, nieces and nephew, and guard cat Mac. She is predeceased by her sister, Joyce Conroy of Aberdeen.

Arrangements were entrusted to the Shore Point Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Inc., 3269 State Hwy/Rt 35 N, Hazlet. For further details and information on the visitation and funeral service dates and times, as well as directions and to send condolences to the family, please visit,
