Mary J. Bernstengel Grippe

Wall - Mary Grippe, 92 passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on January 23, 2018 at Sunnyside Manor in Wall. Born in Hoboken, she also lived in Manasquan and Freehold. Mary was a lifelong bookkeeper and had worked for Fishermen's Dock Co-op in Point Pleasant, Squan Tavern in Manasquan and Olde Silver Tavern in Manalapan.

She was an avid reader and was always surrounded by her paperbacks. Mary was always up for a good time and as all who knew her spoke her mind, you never knew what she was going to say, but loved her anyway.

Mary is survived by her three daughters; Alicemarie Johnson, Karen Ann Kokoll both of Wall, Julia and her husband John Elmer of Brick; grandchildren, Dawnmarie and husband Thomas O'Rourke, Dana and her husband Jody Estey, Joe and Kera Johnson, Sgt. Christopher Elmer, Rachel and Danny Elmer of Brick; great-grandchildren, Austin, Sydney, Nina, Parker and Molly. She is also survived by her longtime caregiver and friend Ellen. Mary would like to thank her special friends Kathy and Steve for never forgetting her on the Holidays.

The family would like to thank the entire staff of Sunnyside Manor for their years of loving care and attention, we want to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation for taking such good care of our Mother. Also, the family would like to thank Grace Hospice for their kindness and comfort during her final hours.
