Patricia Kemp McAdam died peacefully at her home on June 28, 2020 at the age of 82. She was the loving wife of Michael B. McAdam, her equally loving husband of 62 years. She is also survived by her four children, Michael B. McAdam, Jr. (Cheryl), Laura M. Rosamond (Sam), Colleen M. Nusloch (Hank), Patrick E. McAdam (Susan), her siblings Donald S. Kemp and Kathy K.

She was preceded in death by her parents Thelma Roy Kemp and Edgar Burton Kemp, Jr. and her brother, Edgar Burton Kemp, III. Pat graduated from Fortier High School’s first coed class in 1955. She graduated from Louisiana State University in 1959 with a B.S. degree in elementary education. She taught one year in a New Orleans public elementary school. After raising her four children, she resumed teaching in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten schools and then began a 20-year career at Resurrection of Our Lord School in East New Orleans. All of her students were beneficiaries of the same love, kindness, and devotion she had for her four children. She was the 1987 recipient of the Regina Matrum Award for Resurrection of Our Lord parish in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. She was a long-time member and past co-president of the Pelican Squares square dancing club. She was a member of two Red Hat clubs. She enjoyed traveling and camping in 47 of the 48 lower states and three overseas trips to Europe. Her greatest joys were seeing family on any day of the week.
