Mary Quaid McLean Hock “Quaidie” Hock entered the Church Triumphant on February 16, 2020, following a long but courageous struggle with congestive heart failure. She was preceded in death by her husband, Pastor Bob Hock, at Christmastime 2015. Quaidie was born to the Reverend and Mrs. John Lee McLean in Winchester, Virginia, on the first day of spring in 1934. She was the youngest of four loving siblings: Margaret “Bunny” Fletcher, Lee McLean, Jr., Anne Wells and Virginia Pharr. Quaidie attended schools in Richmond, Virginia and graduated from the Medical College of Virginia School of Nursing in 1955. She worked as an OB nurse and became a Childbirth Educator, loving the Lamaze classes at Winter Park Hospital where she taught for many years. Quaidie adored babies! Her joys in life were her faith, family and friends, of whom she had many. Her marriage to her high school sweetheart and devoted husband of sixty-one years was the highlight of her life! She was a dedicated partner in his forty-year-long ministry at three churches. They enjoyed sharing many wonderful trips together and escaping to their beach retreat at New Smyrna Beach. Quaidie was always active in church and community activities and enjoyed quilting, cheering for the Orlando Magic, playing bridge, her book club and Bible study, and visiting friends at the Lutheran Haven Retirement Community where she lived. Quaidie is survived by three loving children: Debbie Byorick, Danny Hock (Lisa), and Donna Wilkinson (Steve), three beautiful granddaughters and their sweet husbands who became her grandsons: Elizabeth Tippette (Bruce), Allison Cassedy (Case), Shelby Rushing (Alex), and six precious great-grands: Liam, Cort, Blakely, Madeline, Mallory and Ford. A celebration of her life of love will be held at St. John Lutheran Church in Winter Park at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 29. A reception will be held at the church following the service. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to: Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church Orlando; St. John Lutheran Church, Winter Park; or the Lutheran Haven Foundation, Oviedo.
