Obituary

Ellen Nimry passed away peacefully at the age of 90 in Des Moines, Iowa, on Wednesday, the 3rd o August, 2022, surrounded by her loving family members, fulfilling all her religious and worldly duties. Ellen was born on the 5th of April 1932 to the late Sa’ad Nimry and his wife Nahil Asfour in Husn. She studied at the CMS School in Amman and became a teacher at Queen Zein School until her marriage to the late Dr. Faiz Nimry in 1955 .

Ellen was a mother to Samer, Waseem, Basil, Mouna and Nabeel, and a grandmother to Nadir, Ziad, Fawzi, Nadine, Fares, Adam and Sami. She leaves behind four brothers and two sisters Fouad, Bassam, Laila, Majed, Ayham and Lamia. Four siblings preceded her to eternal life: Samir, Samira, Ghaleb and Waleed .

Ellen was known for her strong faith in God. She was very sociable and friendly to everyone, enjoyed a lively, youthful spirit and kept pace with modern technology. She stood by us, did not skimp on advice and guidance, and shared with us her life experiences .

Ellen was an educator who made a difference in the life of hundreds. An educated and wise woman surrounded by an aura of sobriety and dignity, radiating kindness and tenderness. She was well-known in Jordanian society for her voluntary and charitable work. She contributed to establishing several community service associations and was a founding member of the YWCA and the White Beds for the Elderly. She continued to serve the community throughout her life. She had great charisma, left a positive impression on everyone she met, and was pure in spirit and heart, with a pleasant smile that never tires you.

We will never forget you...beautiful inside and out. We will miss you, our affectionate one, Farewell, our rock and beloved mother.
