Maureen Catherine Wade
Passed away after a brief illness on April 30, 2018. Born in White Plains, NY, Maureen was a lifelong resident of Drexel Hill and Upper Darby PA. She recently moved to Haddonfield NJ to be close to family.
Maureen will be lovingly remembered by daughter Maya Wade (Drew Cashner), grandchildren Dylan and Mackenzie Cashner, siblings Michael Wade (Debra Rush-Wade), Sheila Tobin (John), Patti Wade, Tim Wade (Abby Lang), Kevin Wade (Toni), Brian Wade (Linda), Eileen Wade-Stein (Dave), and many nieces, nephews, family members, friends and colleagues.
Maureen worked at Drexel University for over 30 years, including as a Systems Administrator. She had degrees from both Penn and Drexel Universities.
Maureen dearly loved her grandchildren Dylan and Mackenzie and so many things in the world including cats, hiking, photography, bird watching, crocheting, novels, and being at the beach with family. We are broken hearted and our world will never be the same. Donations to The Nature Conservancy and World Wildlife Fund are appreciated.
A memorial gathering is being planned. Please check back to this website, we will update when memorial plans are finalized.
UPDATE: Drexel is hosting a memorial on June 1. Please contact Drexel for details. Additionally, the family will be holding a memorial hike on June 16 at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge, likely with a service at a TBD place beforehand.
