Nancy Clare (McKeague) Maddocks

Nancy Clare Maddocks, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend was born to life on January 2, 1924, the daughter of John and Mary McKeague. She was born into eternal life on Wednesday, September 14, 2011, and will be remembered for her beautiful smile and her smiling Irish eyes.

She grew up in Superior, Wisconsin, and in 1948 she married the boy next door, James Robert Maddocks. They moved to Racine, Wisconsin, and had five children: son, Jim (Jean nee: Gergen); daughter, Nancy (Karl Frederick); son, Tom (Kitty nee: Neeb); daughter, Mary (Ken Waldo); and daughter, Peggy Buck; 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jim, and grandson, James Buck.

She loved to garden, second only to being surrounded by her family. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus. She volunteered for the American Cancer Society and also in the Gift Shop at St. Mary’s Hospital for many years.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, September 24, 2011, at 10 a.m. at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church, 1903 Green St., with Rev. Don Zerkel officiating. Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Garden Mausoleum, Hwy 32. Relatives and friends may meet with the family at a reception following the committal service. Donations may be made to Hospice Alliance, Inc. or the National Parkinson Foundation.

We would like to thank the wonderful people at Harmony Assisted Living of Kenosha, who took such loving and compassionate care of her for almost two years. We would also like to thank Hospice Alliance for the loving care they gave her in her final weeks. We would also like to thank the many friends who have been praying for her.
