Patty McGill

Mrs. Frances Patterson Landell "Patty" McGill, beloved mother, grandmother and wife, 95, of Charlotte, died February 11, 2014, surrounded by family and friends. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, to the late Margaret Alice (nee Patterson) and John Alexander Brewster Landell in 1918, Mrs. McGill attended high school in Freeport, PA, and went on to complete her RN at Western Pennsylvania Hospital School of Nursing. Mrs. McGill worked as both a hospital nurse and as a visiting nurse for several years, attending to those truly in need often in troubled neighborhoods. She was much loved by her patients. During WWII, she met and married Lloyd H.R. McGill (Mac) and lived in various states throughout her marriage including Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Florida, Rhode Island, and Puerto Rico. She eventually retired in Florida with her husband, where she was an active member of Oakhurst United Methodist Church in Seminole, Florida. In her last years she relocated to Charlotte, living at Carmel Place and Charlotte Square. Patty was a terrific athlete, playing field hockey, tennis, and golf, eventually becoming the Women's Club Champion in golf several years running at Ponce Country Club. She continued playing golf into her eighties at the Tides Country Club in Seminole. She was a water safety instructor and a devoted Girl Scout leader, loved and respected by her scouts. She loved music, all crafts and the arts, crocheting many hats for many people, and painting in her later life. She also loved animals having a succession of dogs over the years, each of which was named "Sam". She is survived by her children, Margaret R. Troufield of Attleboro, MA, Mary P. (Robert) Karouz of Seminole Florida, Patricia Ann McGill (Ray Menard) of Attleboro, MA, James E. (Colleen) McGill of Chatham, NY, and Molly McGill (Ron Ahlert) of Charlotte; her 11 grandchildren, Robert Sturdevant, Deborah Daley, L. Steven Troufield, Carmen Da Cunha, Nicholas Pierannunzi, Justin McGill, Ryan McGill, Matthew Karouz, Nacima Austin, Sara Jones, and John Ahlert, her 20 great grandchildren, and her 2 great, great grandsons, and her beloved cousin, Pat Gillespie of Phoenix, AZ. Mrs. McGill is preceded in death by her husband Mac and her son, John L. McGill.
