On Monday, Nov. 4, 2019, Joan B. Kincaid McGrady passed away peacefully in her home in Tuxedo with her daughter by her side.
Joan was a lifetime resident of Tuxedo. She was the daughter of Theodore F. Kincaid Sr. and Isabell Brentnall Kincaid as well as niece to Dorothy "Aunt Dottie" Kincaid.
In June 1956, Joan married her soulmate, William "Bill" McGrady. They were married for 53 years and remained in Tuxedo for 51 of those years.
Joan was a "Jane of all Trades. "From line worker at Avon in Suffern to custodian in the Tuxedo School District to kitchen aide at Tuxedo Park School to providing babysitting services in her home, Joan did it all.
She was also a wiz at heading church suppers for the former Tuxedo United Methodist Church (now the Historical Society).
While these jobs were all fulfilling, the one she loved best was being a mom, grandma and great grandma.
Joan is survived by her three siblings: Victoria Loren (husband Johnny) of Raleigh, North Carolina, Theodore "Ted/Teddy" Kincaid Jr. of Tuxedo and Bonnie Heath (husband Ray) of Greenville, North Carolina; her four children, Kenneth of Goshen, Sandra "Sandy" of Tuxedo, David (wife Karen) of Southfields and Steven Sr. (wife Debbie) of Tuxedo; six grandsons: Matthew (wife Maria) of Newburgh, Mark (wife Lauren) of Hamstead, N.C., Adam (wife Shannon) of Goshen, Aaron (wife Erin) of Chester, Steven Jr. of Tuxedo and Christopher of Highland Mills; six great grandchildren: Ryan, Bridget, Connor, Dylan, Madison and Emilia along with many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at the Sloatsburg United Methodist Church, 93 Orange Turnpike, Sloatsburg, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, with Ross Topliff officiating. Family and friends may gather for refreshments following the service.
Memorial donations may be made in Joan's name either to the Sloatsburg United Methodist Church or American Heart Association.
