Joan P. Quigley-Kehoe of Ocean View, DE departed her earthly body and earned her heavenly wings on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 while surrounded by her loving family.

In her early years, Joan raised four boys while working from home as a Dutchmaid Sales Associate. Later in life, Joan became a CNA who provided home healthcare to elderly patients through Beebe Medical Center. Joan was known as a Prayer Warrior for Mariners Bethel United Methodist Church where she was passionate about the Rock of Ages Ministry, Hope Center Youth Program, and Feed My Sheep outreach programs. Likewise, Joan was an enthusiastic member of Delaware Quilts quilting club where she was known to regale her fellow quilters with her zany antics and amazing stories that left them in stitches.

Quigley and his wife Trish of Frankford, DE, Frank W. Quigley of Harbeson, DE, and her adopted family Laura and Rodney Hufford of Millville, DE and their children.
