Nina McQuady Obituary

Nina Lee Bray McQuady, a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend passed away Saturday, November 4, 2023, surrounded by her family at Ohio County Healthcare. She was born at home in McHenry during the historic 1937 flood on January 9 to the late Frank Bray and Anna Mae Moore Bray. Nina was a homemaker and member of New Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Baizetown. She married her best friend and love of her life sixty-six years ago in the judge’s chambers with the sheriff and county attorney as their witnesses. The witnesses made the judge more nervous than the bride and groom were.

Aside from her parents she was preceded in death by her aunt and uncle, Matilda Vay and Vernie LeGrand; brother and sister-in-law, Donald and Beulah Bray, brother-in-law, Wendell McCormick and grandson, Johnny Ray Smith.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her husband, Fredric C. McQuady of Beaver Dam; four children, Diana McQuady of Bowling Green, Fred (Dale) McQuady of Lexington, Brenda (Paul) Smith of Baizetown, and Sherry McQuady of Beaver Dam; five grandchildren, Jimmy Smith, Jamey Smith, Travis (Barbara) McQuady, Aaron (Katie) McQuady, and Elise McQuady; seventeen great grandchildren; six great-great grandchildren; sister, Winnie McCormick of Beaver Dam; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, David and Linda McQuady of Cromwell; two nephews, and four nieces.
