Patricia Ann Prim McCord

Patricia Prim McCord, 87, of Savannah, Georgia passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, February 16th, 2022. Pat was born in Atlanta, Georgia on July 26th, 1934 to Ruth Webb and Warren Prim.

She was pre-deceased by her loving husband Quinn R. McCord, brothers Warren Prim of Boston, and Thomas Prim, of Charleston.

She leaves behind her three children, Quinn W. McCord (Mary Eileen) of Milton, DE, David M. McCord of West Trenton, NJ, and Lindsay McCord Norman (Rob) of Savannah, GA. Also left to cherish her memory are her loving grandchildren; Quinn M. McCord of Philadelphia, Patrick J. McCord of Seaford, DE, Douglas J. McCord of West Trenton, NJ, Katherine L. McCord of Washington, D.C., Alex K. Wasily of Los Angeles, Jesse K, Wasily of New York City, Rosalyn M. Norman and Frances R. Norman of Savannah and her Great-grandson Keaton James McCord of DE. Patricia attended school at Charles Ellis Elementary in Savannah, Delta High School in Pennsylvania and University of Georgia, graduating in 1956 with a BS in teaching. She immediately began her teaching career in San Diego, California where she met her husband, Quinn R McCord. As teachers, they enjoyed their adventures at The Taft School, in Watertown, CT, The Webb School in Bell Buckle, TN, Maumee Valley Country Day School, in Toledo, OH, Chapin School and Princeton Day School in New Jersey. Personally, in her career and later in her church, Pat was known as a champion for the underdog, for equal rights and for inclusivity. She worked hard and was a model of kindness, optimism, strength and perseverance. She kept in touch with her many friends as best she could. It was a source of pure joy! Pat loved to travel anywhere, but especially to visit friends and family. She cherished her special beach vacations with her teaching friends, and the European trips she took with Quinn. Always enjoying visits from her children and grandchildren, Pat loved attending their ballgames, competitions and concerts and always kept track of their many accomplishments. She also loved her furry friends, including many dogs and most recently her special “Kitty”.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, February 26th, 2022 at the First Presbyterian Church at 520 Washington Avenue in Savannah. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the First Presbyterian Church, 520 Washington Avenue, or to the special staff at The Oaks at Habersham, 5200 Habersham Street.

As an fpc member I visited Pat and her kitty and then began telephone conversations weekly. She could always laugh at my jokes and ask about my health. I would tell her about Roslyn playing Debussy on the Steinway at fpc. She was very proud of all her grandchildren and the new great grandson. Penny

- Penny Pennington fpc, Savannah,, ga

We enjoyed every minute we spent with Pat whether in person or on the telephone. She was always welcoming, gracious and quick to laugh about kids, grandkids, dogs and growing old. We will miss her and send our condolences to her family. Sandy and Rod.
