Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Patricia M. Wedge

LOWELL  – Patricia M. (Madigan) Wedge, 82, of Tewksbury, formerly of Lowell, passed away Monday, February 15, 2021, at Genesis Westford House after a short illness. For Fifty years, she was the beloved wife of the late Richard F. Wedge.
A daughter of the late Herbert F. Madigan and the late Rita E. (Demonte) Madigan, she was born August 13, 1938 in Cambridge and was raised and educated in Cambridge.
Before residing in Tewksbury, she made her home in Lowell’s Belvidere Neighborhood with her husband where they raised their family. She was a communicant of Immaculate Conception Church and was a former member of the Booster Club. She loved to cook but mostly loved time spent with family, especially with her grandchildren, so cooking for family was her greatest joy.

Her survivors include her children, Richard F. Wedge and his wife, Donna (Bukala), of Florida, Ken J. Wedge and his wife, Karen (Szczechura), of Lowell, Scott Wedge and his husband, Gerald Piccirillo, of Wilmington, Jeffrey Wedge and his wife, Sarah Braley, of Connecticut, and Lisa M. Wedge of Lowell;
her nine grandchildren, Susan, Kristin, Alison, Rachael, Ryan, Nicole, Maddox, Joshua and his wife, Marissa, and Emma; her great grandchildren Mason and Myla; her sister, Janice Fionte and her husband, Ron, of Melrose; her sister in law, Hazel Staple of East Pepperell; as well as many nieces, nephews, and many friends she made over the years.

    Lisa and Kenny so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. It is very difficult to say good bye to a Mother because there is no love as a Mother’s love. Wishing that you find love and support during this very difficult time.
