Obituary for Mrs. Ivy McQuade

February 29, 1920 - May 11, 2017
Marietta, Georgia | Age 97


Ivy Rosetta McQuade passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 11, 2017 at her home in Heritage Oaks where she resided with her son,Tony and his family in Marietta, Georgia.

Born in 1920 in the town of Tilbury, England, Ivy never lived more than 10 miles from her place of birth until relocating to the USA in 2007. During her 87 years in England, she and her husband enjoyed traveling thru Europe for summer vacations. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Henry McQuade in 1979.

Ivy loved spending time with her family and friends, particularly the new friends she made after moving to Marietta. She enjoyed movies, reading, all types of word puzzles, and was devoted to her dog, Muffin. Ivy had a wonderful smile that could light up a room and a natural ability to make everyone welcome.

She is survived by her son, Tony McQuade and his wife Cathy, granddaughter Gabriela McQuade, grandson Lawrence McQuade of Radcliff, Kentucky and his wife Sheri, and great-grandchildren Catherine McQuade and Cameron Finley, also of Radcliff, Kentucky, all of whom brought her great joy in her later years.

Ivy loved many things in her life, and children and animals were at the top of her list. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or the Humane Society of the USA.
A memorial service for Ivy will be held 11am on Saturday, May 20th, at Southern Cremations & Funerals at Cheatham Hill Memorial Park in Marietta.
