Obituary for Joan M. Weiss

May 15, 2021
Newtown, Pennsylvania


On May 15, 2021 Joan McQuade Weiss passed away at age 86 at home in Wrightstown, PA, surrounded by her loved ones.
Born in Philadelphia, PA to the late Edgar Allan McQuade and Ruth McQuade (née Gaskill), Joan moved around as a child but always considered the Philadelphia area her home. Joan and Charles Weiss married in 1953 after a chance encounter at City Hall on New Year's Eve 1951. After saving up to move to the suburbs in Feasterville, Joan and Charles built their home of almost 50 years from the ground up together.
Joan held jobs at Radio Condenser, Curtis Publishing and Nesbitt Corporation before raising her children Joni and Chuck. She was a competitive bowler and loved to play games and spend time in person and on the phone with her closest friends. Throughout her lifetime, she was an avid movie lover, often setting aside weekend nights to head to the movie theaters.
When her grandchildren were born, you could always find Mom-mom attending their numerous performances and sporting events to show her support. She loved to spoil them and her great-grandsons as well.
She was predeceased by her brother Edgar Allan McQuade Jr., her sister-in-law Susan McQuade, nephew Edgar Allen (Skip) McQuade III, her brother-in-law James Weiss, and sister-in-law Sarae Manogue.
She is survived by her husband Charles, her daughter Joan Mosteller and her husband Edgar who lived with and cared for her, her son Chuck Weiss and his wife Niki, and her grandchildren Melanie Shaffer (Matt), Danielle Mosteller (Melissa), Mackenzie Weiss (Emily), Anna Dienstman and Cari Dienstman, her great grandchildren Kyle and Carson Shaffer, and her extended family both near and far.
Family and friends are invited to Joan's Life Celebration, Saturday June 5th, from 10-11 AM at Swartz/Givnish of Newtown, 323 E. Washington Ave. and to participate in her Funeral Service at 11am.
Joan's family graciously requests memorial donations be made to Constellation Hospice at 10125 Verree Rd, Ste #201, Philadelphia, PA 19116.
