Obituary of Ellen Sue Minchak

Ellen Sue Minchak passed away at her home in Pearl River, NY on May 30, 2021 at the age of 74.  She was surrounded by family.  Ellen was born February 8, 1947 to Henry and Ann Cassi in Englewood, NJ.  She was married to Eugene Minchak on August 5, 1972 at St. Margaret’s Church in Pearl River, NY.


Ellen loved to travel with her family, especially cruises.  After her retirement in 2013, she and Eugene enjoyed many amazing trips by air, land, and sea.  One of her favorite places to visit and daydream about was Hawaii.  She loved visiting family and exploring while traveling.  She had many devoted friends and loved spending time with them.  Her greatest joy, however, was her grandchildren.


Ellen is survived by her husband Eugene Minchak of Pearl River, NY; her son Mark Minchak and his wife Kerri Minchak of Baldwin, NY; her daughter Christine Minchak of Nyack, NY; her son Scott Minchak of Pearl River, NY; her grandchildren Kaitlin Minchak, Jami Minchak, and Charles Minchak of Baldwin, NY; her brother Henry Cassi and his wife Margaret Cassi of Fort Meyers, FL; her sister Mary-Anne Blackburn and her husband Robert Blackburn of Hudson, MA; and many beloved nieces and nephews.


She is preceded in death by her parents Henry and Ann Cassi; and her sister Barbara Burke.
