Patricia F. (McCarthy) Quigley

January 18, 1924 — July 6, 2022

Loving mother, grandmother, friend

Lowell - Patricia F. (McCarthy) of Lowell passed away peacefully on July 6th at the age of 98 with her family at her side. She was the wife of James G. Quigley who died in 1962. She is survived by her children Joseph and his wife Joka Quigley of Pepperell MA, David and his wife Evelyn Quigley of Westport CT, Gerald and his wife Rose Quigley of Shrewsbury MA, and Ellen Quigley of Nashua NH. She will also be missed by her 10 grandchildren Jordan, Jared (and wife Jaclyn), John, Emily, Jesse, James, Christopher, Claire, Antonio and Thomas, as well as her 2 great grandchildren Karla and James and many favorite nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved sister Jean McCarthy and her brothers Gerald and John McCarthy along with his wife Anne Marie.

Patricia was a very special person and she leaves this earth as an inspiration to us all. Widowed with 4 young children, she raised her family with love, perseverance, and many special occasions. She loved travelling, socializing with her "Club" friends, downhill skiing (well into her 70's), and taking summer vacations at Moody Beach in Maine. Patricia worked as an executive secretary before and after raising her family. She was an active member at St. Michael Church for many decades as a member of the Altar Society, teaching religious education to special needs children, visiting Tewksbury State Hospital with the Catholic Daughters, and serving the poor in the community through St. Vincent de Paul. A sharp mind and an independent nature served Patricia well very late into her life, and a heartfelt thanks goes out to her wonderful next door neighbors, to her many special friends, and to a devoted team of caregivers led by Elaine Lawler, who together helped her remain in her home. 

Relatives and friends are invited to Patricia's Life Celebration on Sunday, July 10th from 2 until 5 pm at the MCKENNA-OUELLETTE FUNERAL HOME, 327 Hildreth Street, Lowell.
