She was born on September 12, 1932 in Orange, NJ, the daughter of the late Garrett Elliott Conover and Olive Russlend Conover. She was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Herbert A. Ehrenfreund, and her brother, G. E. 'Connie' Conover Jr. She is survived by her three daughters, Carol E. Kingsley (Charles) of Hummelstown, PA, Cindy E.

After graduating from Endicott College, she worked for NBC at Rockefeller Center in New York City until she took on her proudest job as a wife and mom to her three girls. Midge was happiest spending time with her family, gardening, golfing, and playing bridge. At the bridge table, she was particularly proud to have attained Silver Life Master status, traveling throughout the U.S. for tournaments. She considered her bridge friends to be her extended family. Midge loved games, puzzles, and baking, especially for others. She was also an avid fan of the UCONN women's basketball team.
