Ethel Monaco Sconyers

Obituary of Ethel Rose Monaco Sconyers

Ethel Rose Monaco left on Angel wings to be with our Lord on 12/8/2021.  She was born on October 10, 1932 in Watertown, NY. Ethel was the daughter of Dominic and Hilda Hartle Monaco.

Ethel graduated from Watertown High School in 1950. After Graduation she was employed at J.J. Newberrys store in Watertown, NY.


In 1951, Ethel married Billy G. Sconyers, a soldier stationed at Camp Drum, NY.  Billy Sconyers passed away on August 8, 2017. Ethel and Billy eventually made their home in Tampa, Florida.

In Tampa, Ethel found employment with Lindsley Lumber Home Care Center. Once Ethel had her children, she knew that this was the only career she needed and loved being a Mom/Grandma!

Ethel is survived by her 3 loving sons, Rex Allen (married to Sig), Jimmy, and Mark David. Two Grandkids, Jason Sconyers and Heather Sconyers-MacVicar (Wade MacVicar), and 3 Great Grandchildren, Emma, Wade Jr, and Connor MacVicar. 

She is survived by Manual "Bernie" Bernales, whom she lovingly called her 4th son, who did not grow in her womb, but in her heart.  Ethel is also survived by her dog, Max, who brought her lots of joy and companionship.

In addition, Ethel is survived by countless Nieces and Nephews whom she loved dearly and the feeling was returned in spades.


Ethel is survived by many friends who loved her and will dearly miss her presence!  Ethel believed that to have a dear friend, you have to be one, and that she was! She was friends with Jackie Pepp Oliver since 

High School and have been exchanging the same Birthday card for over 25 years! She loved to go to garage sales with MaryNell Tyler, a hobby they pursued for over 50 years.  A list of Ethel's dearest friends would

not be complete without the world class dancer, Victoria Regan. Victoria was like a daughter to Ethel, and she cherished that relationship.


Ethel had many hobbies such as garage saling, scratch offs, gardening, drawing, and crocheting to name a few.  But most of all she loved family and entertaining for holidays and birthdays.  She loved family history

and learning about her Italian heritage and anything to do with her beloved hometown, Watertown, NY. Her heart always remained there.


Ethel gave of herself unconditionally, whether it was sitting with a sick neighbor, cooking for friends and family or taking in a stray dog or cat. She gave cheerfully and willingly, wanting nothing in return. 

A void will certainly be felt by all those whose lives she touched!  Rest in Peace Mom/Ma/Grandma, We love you with all our heart and miss you dearly!
