Mary Ellen Veronica Rush, age 63, beloved wife, mother, “Mimi”, sister and aunt, passed away peacefully on July 31, 2019. Mary Ellen was born to the late Thomas and Dorothy Rush (Augspurger) of Weehawken, NJ. Mary Ellen was born in Hoboken, NJ and raised in Weehawken. A 12 year Catholic school girl, she graduated Sacred Heart Academy in 1974. She went on to study at secretarial school and later on, pursued her BSN at Farleigh Dickinson University. She always wanted to pursue a career as a nurse, but her true love and calling lied in being a stay at home mother to her children. As a fellow Weehawken resident, she met her husband Rocco, got married and went onto have four beautiful children. This past February, she became a “Mimi” when her first grandson was born. She was such a proud Mimi who loved her grandson with all her heart. Mary Ellen will be remembered by her close family and many friends as a strong woman, fun loving and full of life. She handled any obstacle life threw her way with grace, humility, and knowing she lived a very blessed life. Such a beautiful soul inside and out, she was a devout Catholic who loved nature and the beauty of everything life has to offer, which she passed onto her children. Her late husband was her soulmate and her children were her life. Mary Ellen was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Dorothy Rush, and her husband of 35 years, Rocco DeGregorio. She is survived by her four children: Logan, her husband Brian, and their son Brian Rocco, Magee, Cooper and Hunter; and her brother Thomas and his wife Colleen. She is also survived by her nephews Vincent, Patrick and Paul, and her niece Mary. Mary Ellen will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Memorial visitation will be at Volk Leber Funeral Home, 268 Kinderkamack Road, Oradell, NJ on Wednesday, August 7 from 12-4pm.
