Obituary for Joanne E. Shields McCready

Our hearts are broken over the loss of an incredibly strong woman, loving wife, devoted mother, and doting grandmother - Joanne 'Nona' Elizabeth McCready (nee Shields) (63).

Daughter of Joseph and Mary Shields (nee Mirabella) she is survived by her husband Gerald; children: Kendall, Nolan, Curran and Evan; grandchildren: Patrick, Annalise, Reagan, Adelaide, Killian, Reid, Finnian and Callum and sisters: Patricia, Kathryn, and Marie.

She will be remembered for the strength of her character and the passion with which she loved her family. In honor of the 12 years she spent as a dedicated member of the Wyomissing Area School Board, the family requests that donations be made to the Wyomissing Area Education Foundation (re: Joanne McCready - in lieu of flowers.

No services will be held at this time. Brave beyond what should be required, a void has been left where she once stood. She will be more than missed, she will be remembered.

She had to get something that boil-o wouldn't cure!
Loving. Passionate. Protective. Devoted. Committed. Common sense. Hard-working. Gracious. Smiling. Laughing. Accepting. These are just a few of the words that spring to mind.
It would be difficult for her to hear any compliments. I can imagine her saying, "Come on, people!" For once, we have the last word: We love you, Joanne! You are with us, always.
