Patricia Anne Moorefield of Wilmington, NC, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 18, 2023. She was 91 years of age. Pat was born February 14, 1932 in Washington, D.C., to the late Edward C. and Lilla A. Schade. She was preceded in death by her devoted and loving husband of 57 years, Robert S. Moorefield Sr., and her beloved daughter, Donna Marie Formisano.
Pat’s greatest joy in life was her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She cherished every moment with “her babies” attending as many school and sporting events, recitals, parties, etc., as possible. She was a fun grandmother and the best playmate to all grandbabies. She lived
by the phrase “what happens at Grandmom’s, stays at Grandmom’s!”
Pat was a woman of strong faith, finding solace and strength in her belief throughout her life. In addition to caring for her husband and children, Pat’s career as an executive secretary included the Department of the Army, Training Corporation of America and Meloy Laboratories Inc. Pat’s kind and loving spirit and her quick wit will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Pat is survived by her loving children, Nancy Clark (Steve), Robert Moorefield Jr., both of Hampstead, NC, and Katherine Jacobi (Eric) of Wilmington, NC. Pat is also survived by her nine grandchildren, Christopher, Kimberly, Christine, Clay, Seana, Britton, Ryan, Matthew and Julia. She also leaves behind eleven much loved great-grandchildren.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Pat’s private caregivers and the staff at Lower Cape Fear Lifecare.
Pat will be interred alongside her loving husband Robert at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA at a date to be later determined.
