NEWARK — A Celebration of Life Service for Patricia Ann Quack, 80, of Newark will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Heath Church of Christ with Greg Robbins, Dave Mason and Ray Linn officiating. Burial will follow in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
She went to be with her Lord on Aug. 15, 2009, at Selma Markowitz Hospice Unit at Licking Memorial Hospital. Patricia was born April 9, 1929, in Findlay to the late Walter and Gertrude “Cookie” (Olson) McCracken. She was manager of Quack Fire Equipment for 23 years. She was a member of the National Association of Fire Equipment Dealers. She graduated from Newark High School as vice president of her class in 1947. She was a member of the Heath Church of Christ, where she served as choir director for 12 years. Music played an important role in her life and she loved to sing of her Lord. She had a special bond with her teenage choir, “The Messengers,” whom she referred to as “My Kids.” Traveling with her husband to many destinations was a great joy for her.
Surviving her is her husband of 49 years, Richard Quack.
In addition to her parents, her son, Steven Michael Quack, preceded her in death.
