Patricia Ruie Wale
Patricia R. Wale passed away peacefully at age 95 on October 23, 2019, at Elderwood at Lockport. Born March 17, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois, she was the daughter of Edward and Leora Stillwell.
Patricia grew up, attended schools and worked in Chicago before meeting her husband, George (Mike) Wale, there in 1944 during WWII. They met at a dance her company sponsored for the GI's. They were married in Chicago's City Hall only two weeks later. George was originally from Lockport, so they settled here after the war to raise a family.
Patricia and George continued their love of dancing throughout their 67 year marriage. Patricia also had a lifelong love for the arts and was a member of the Niagara Arts Guild. Many of her art works received awards at shows and exhibitions. Patricia enjoyed spending winters in Florida and time with her family.
Patricia was predeceased by her husband, George; brothers, Clyde and Robert and sister, Mary (McDade). She is survived by children, Marcia (Ron) Walter, Bruce (Mary Ann Chunco) Wale, Robert (Barbara) Wale; grandchildren, Corey (Emily) Walter, Janelle Walter, Michael (Mary) Wale, Adam (Emily) Wale; great-grandchildren, Kaelyn, Leila and Marissa; nieces, Sandy (Greg) Spoth and Tracy (Pete) Zanda.
The family would like to extend its heartfelt appreciation to close family friend, Kathy McGowan and the staff at Elderwood for their support and care for Patricia.
Friends may call Monday, October 28th from 11AM-1PM, with a memorial service immediately following at 1 PM in Prudden and Kandt Funeral Home, 242 Genesee Street, Lockport. Flowers gratefully declined. Memorials may be sent to Niagara Hospice Home, 4675 Sunset Drive, Lockport, New York 14094.

Marcia---So sorry to hear of the loss of your beautiful Mother. To read that she was with you for 95 years is amazing and so special. Your family was made stronger by her presence. Sending hugs to Kaelyn and her parents, you and Ron and especially to Janelle and the
puppies. Thinking of you all.
