Our deepest sympathy on your loss.
Mr. & Mrs. Vincent Poliseno
My condolences to the family. I'm sorry for your(our) loss. The entire family was like a second family of mine. I have fond memories of discussions I've had with both Mr and Mrs Meade. When I came to town I always tried to visit them, and then her even if I didn't have time to see Chip! I learned many things from them. The world is a lesser place without them.
You will be missed by all but youre with great company! God Bless! ❤
Patti, I was very sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I hope her memories will be a blessing you and your family.
My deepest condolences to your entire family! Your mom was a wonderful woman and so very proud of all her children and grand children! I heard many a story and she always beamed when speaking of you all! She lived a long and full life, always volunteering when ever needed and a devout Catholic! I know she is in heaven with your dad, smiling to be with him again and looking down and watching over you all! She will always be with you!
Sending love and continued prayers, Jerri Septak-Horan
My condolences to the entire family, I knew Pat, (and Chuck), from the Republicans for many years and, in more recent times, ran into Pat at the old Spotswood Diner, etc. She will be missed. Unfortunately, I will not be able to come to the viewing since it is on Rosh Hashana.

My condolences to your family,Elaine Sooy and family,may she rest in peace
Aunt Pat was many things to so many of us. She was direct, involved and she listened. You know she listened because she would always ask you about whatever it was you spoke about the last time she spoke with you. To my Meade(Daly) cousins - most of all she was proud. She was so proud to be your mom and grand mother. Never once did she have a negative thing to say about any one of you to me. She was on top of everything going on, and thrilled to be part of it. You are her legacy, but you were also her life. I can tell you she LOVED every one of you ! May she rest in peace. She will be missed. Let's keep the Daly family strong!
My condolences to a Wonderful family who were raised by Great parents.
Pat was a great friend to the Spotswood Fire Department along with her husband Chuck. She was at all the installation dinners, at all Memorial Day Parades and many other activities. She will be missed and the entire Conover family send our condolences to the Meade family.
Patti....my condolences to you and the entire family. “Love of a Mother is like no other”. Find comfort in all the loving memories of a life well lived and shared with all of her children and extended family. May she enjoy eternal rest and repose in God’s hands.
Pat was a Gem, She and Chuck were so dear to our Family. She raised a beautiful family and I was proud to be her babysitter!!! She has left us with so many beautiful memories which we will hold close to our hearts. A bright light has dimmed today. Our Love to all the Family. God Bless to all the family. Barbara and Bill LaMaestra.
