Jacqueline Susan (Quatman) Wade, known affectionately as Jacque, passed away peacefully on August 30, 2023, at the age of 79. She was born on January 2, 1944, in Piqua, Ohio, to Joseph B. Quatman and Margaret Hemm Quatman.

Jacque attended Lima Central Catholic High School and went on to further her education at the University of Dayton. It was there that she discovered her passion for art and excelled in her studies. She became an accomplished artist, specializing in Norwegian Rosemaling during the earlier years of her life. Later on, her focus shifted towards caring for her grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and young children, bringing them joy and happiness.

In addition to her talent in art, Jacque had a variety of interests that brought her fulfillment. She enjoyed cooking, preserving food, engaging in crafts, entertaining guests, spending quality time with her family, and indulging in the occasional shopping spree. She was well-known for her generosity, always willing to offer her time and resources to those who knew her.

She is survived by her loving high school sweetheart of 58 years, Jim Wade, and their children, Wendy (Bryant) Morton, Amy (Chuck) Ernst, and Jimmy Wade. Jacque also leaves behind cherished grandchildren: Bart, Alex, Mimi, Mattie Estelle, Rori, Finnley, and Dexter.

    Dear Jim, Wendy, Amy, and Jimmy We are very sad at the passing of Jacque. We have many great memories of building houses on Edelman Ct in Brookfield and our families becoming good friends for many years. We also remember that you had a springer named Fred and convinced us to get a springer named Ted. Our life was great with our kids and the Fred and Ted show. We will always remember Jacque and those wonderful years.
