Patricia Ann (Walmsley) McQuade

October 27, 2018 | Wilmington, DE

Patricia Ann (Walmsley) McQuade, age 86, of Wilmington, DE, formerly of Bellefonte, DE, departed this life suddenly on Saturday, October 27, 2018.

Patricia graduated from Conrad High School in 1950. She also graduated from the Delaware Hospital School of Nursing. She was a registered nurse on 4 West at Delaware Division Hospital for 30 years.  Patricia enjoyed reading and doing crossword puzzles. Watching Jeopardy, soccer and tennis were among the joys in her life.  She will dearly miss the longtime friendship and Sunday calls to her friend, Barry Margum.

Patricia was predeceased by her husband of 32 years, Francis “Mack” McQuade in 1986.  She is survived by her two children, Patricia Minner (Ed) and Michael McQuade (Dorothy); one granddaughter, Christina Braddock (Roger); and one great-granddaughter, Cassidy Cornish.

A special thank you to the staff at Foulk Manor North, Bayada Home Care and New Century Hospice for their care, love and support.

There will be a Graveside Service at 11am on Monday, November 5, 2018 at All Saints Cemetery, 6001 Kirkwood Hwy, Wilmington, DE 19808.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Delaware SPCA.

  1. Pattie Minner it’s been along time. I didn’t know your Mom but I’m sure she will be missed by many who knew her. So very sorry for your loss.

    With Sympathy,
