Elizabeth M. Ryder, 67 years old of Long Branch, died Wednesday September 28, 2022 at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch. Beth was born in Glen Ridge, NJ to John and Mary Ellen Boylan. She was employed at Bank of America which allowed her to see the world and travel to England, Singapore, and Ireland. Beth enjoyed baking, word search games, spending time with her grandchildren, an avid Mets fan and trips to Atlantic City trips with her husband. She was a member of St. Michael's Bell Choir for years and Takanassee Beach Club where she spent many summers under an umbrella. Beth loved life, family and dry humor. She was a hard worker, a good friend, a loving wife and an amazing mother but her proudest title was "Grammy".
