Beatrice Helen McDade, 86, passed away on July 14, 2020. Beatrice was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. She lived in Far Rockaway, Breezy Point, N.Y. for most of her adult life. She moved to North Plainfield, N.J. to live with her nephew and niece, Jim and Irene, who thoughtfully welcomed her into their home after Hurricane Sandy. She was employed for over 30 years as an Executive Administrative Assistant to the CEO of The Heckscher Foundation for Children in New York City, retiring in 2004 with deep respect and appreciation from her employer for her conscientious years of service. Beatrice was a kind, generous and loving soul who always lived her faith as a devout Catholic. She was a dedicated parishioner of St. Genevieve Church in Far Rockaway, N.Y. In her spare time she enjoyed travelling around the world, reading, listening to operas and spending time with family and especially her cherished “cats”. She had a great love for her “feline” companions; taking in strays, adopting and caring for them through-out her life.

She is predeceased by her parents, Peter and Beatrice McDade, brother Peter and niece Laurie McDade. She is survived by her sister-in-law Signe McDade, nephews, Peter McDade (Maria), James McDade (Irene), Andrew McDade (Stephanie) and Jonathan McDade (Stephanie), as well as great nephews and nieces, Peter, Kostas, Laurie, Lukas, Sarah, Kalli, and Marcus.
