Ellen Bennett, 86, of Bow passed away on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at The Birches of Concord. Born in Methuen, MA on April 11, 1934 the daughter of Allan and Ellen (Sears) Devine.

She worked for New England Telephone as an operator for many years, transitioning to Verizon and to a role in administration. She was able to retire early and enjoyed the beach, golfing, gardening, shopping, playing cribbage, Bingo, hosting family holidays and loved doing projects around her home. She will lovingly be remembered as a woman of great strength. She seemed to be able to fix any problem no matter what. She was a loving wife, a dedicated, loving mom to all four of her children and a wonderful grandmother. She had a teasing sense of humor that no one could escape...everyone who entered her home immediately felt comfortable and welcomed. She had a youthful, fun presence, whether it be zipping around town in her convertible or playing games with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Ellen is survived by her husband, Robert W. Bennett Of Bow, NH; son, Tony Ceriello and wife Teri of Pembroke NH; daughters, Julie Ceriello of Warner NH and Gina Johnson and husband Peter of Bow NH; grandchildren, Alicia Dixon and husband Richard of Contoocook NH, Nick Ceriello and wife Brandi of Loudon, NH, Gina Marcotte and husband Shane of Manchester, NH, and Cole Johnson of Bow NH. She is predeceased by husbands, Michael Ceriello, Robert Thomas, her son Brian Ceriello, her brothers, James Devine, Charles Devine, Allan Devine, and John Devine and is survived by sisters, Priscilla Milot and Kathleen Dahlin as well as three great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
