Floretta B. “Soey” McFadden, 93, died on October 3, 2020 at her residence in
Annapolis, MD due to congestive heart failure. Born on February 20, 1927 in
Columbus, OH to the late John and Mary Poeppelmeyer, Floretta was raised by her
grandparents, William and Erma Beasley, and moved with them to Sharon, PA, as a
young girl. They later relocated to Youngstown, OH during her later childhood. She
was introduced to George McFadden from Sharon as a young adult and they
married in 1948. As a military family they lived in numerous locations within the
United States and abroad and returned frequently to Sharon for family visits. They
finally settled on Turkey Point in Edgewater, MD in 1987. In 2018, she relocated
to Brightview Senior Center in Annapolis where she resided until her death. In her
spare time, Floretta enjoyed gardening and traveling. She was preceded in death by
her beloved husband of 63 years, George L. McFadden, Jr. and her son, Mark
McFadden. She is survived by her children, Kenneth McFadden, Kathleen Dupuis,
Robert McFadden, George McFadden, III and William McFadden; her
grandchildren, Matthew, Sarah, John, Megan, Jennifer, Bryan, Kelly, Kevin,

Our sincerest sympathy to the McFadden family of the passing of Floretta.
We knew Floretta from Our Lady of Perpetual Church.
Both she and George were strong and faithful members of the parish.
We still enjoy the beautiful altar accessories that were donated in George's name.
Floretta was a dear lady and we will miss her vibrant personality.
Sorry that we could not be there physically to greet the family. We did have that pleasure at George's funeral.
You have been great family to both George and Floretta.
Warmly, Anne and Dick Maio
