Doris Conklin Brady, lifelong resident of West Haven passed away on October 25, 2020 at her home. She was the daughter of the late Warren Conklin and Julia (Mackniak) Conklin.
Doris was a staple of the West Haven beaches, and could be found there most nights enjoying the music and dancing. She was devoted to her family, spending as much time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren as she possibly could. She cared deeply for people, working as a CNA until her retirement, and she always put others needs first. Doris was known for her care packages of soup and other sundries, which she left on the door steps of sick friends and family. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
Doris leaves behind her four children, Deborah Croce (Darin) of West Haven, Cyndi Thompson (Larry) of North Carolina, Doreen Wilson of Florida, and John Wilson (Donna) of Hamden, two brothers, Richard Conklin (Darleen) of Shelton, and Thomas Conklin (Maryanne) of California. She is also survived by ten grandchildren, Michael Croce of West Haven, Kevin Croce (Katie) of North Haven, Martin Benevich III of Arizona, Angela Smith of Texas, Miles Benevich of Texas, Chandler Delemetter of California, Elizabeth Schwartz of Ohio, Derrik Mildh of California, Brendon Carlin of London, Anna Carlin of Colorado and several great grandchildren. She is predeceased by one sister, Rosemary Conklin, and two brothers, William Conklin and Leonard Conklin.
