Matthew Joseph McCormick

Alberta (Bert) Ryan, age 89, died Thursday, December 14, 2017.
Born in Philadelphia, Mrs. Ryan has been a Hopewell resident since 1985.
Bert loved to sew and bake, her family often shared wonderful meals and baked desserts from her German Hungarian family heritage. She loved spending time at her home in Barnegat Light NJ with all her grandchildren and great grandchild, miniature golf outings and evening ice cream treats were a favorite. She enjoyed walks on the Barnegat Light jetty and watching the sunset over the bay at the 25th street bay beach with her husband Bob. A plate of broiled scallops, fries and coleslaw was their favorite shore dinner.
When Bert and her husband first married they moved to Fairfield Connecticut, although they moved back to the Philadelphia area in just a few years they never lost their love of coastal New England. For many years she and Bob would take fall driving vacations through New England to see the beautiful foliage, visit historical sites, coastal towns and enjoy lobster rolls.
She is survived by her children, Kathy, Bob and Matt; daughters-in-law, Diane and Kathy; grandchildren, Jennifer, Geoff, Sarah, Sean and Shannon; great-granddaughter, Anna. She was predeceased by her husband Robert J Ryan, her brothers Danny and Al and her parents Albert and Julia Hunziker.
