Letitia M. Ryan
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Letitia Margaret McGill Ryan, better known as Tish. Tish was born in Philadelphia, PA on June 19th 1937 and passed on November 30th 2023. She was a resident of Brittany Point Estates in Lansdale for the last few years.
Mom passed after being visited by many of her family members and friends, and her children were with her during her final days.
We hope that family and friends will be able to join us to celebrate her life on Saturday, December 16th, 2023 at Our Mother of Consolation Parish, 9 E Chestnut Hill Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118. Visitation will be between 9 A.M. and 11A.M., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 A.M. Interment will be private.
Tish was the daughter of William D. and L. Margaret McCaffrey McGill of Chestnut Hill and Sea Isle City. She was predeceased by her parents, brother Dennis McGill, and brother in law Thomas Gibson. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Meg Ryan Kalady (Mark Kalady), Martin Ryan (Cathy Murphy Ryan), Beth Ryan Fincke (John Fincke), Hank Ryan (Srey Ya Ryan), as well as her siblings Kathleen McGill Gibson, and Michael McGill. Tish was the grandmother of Molly Kalady (Danny Tallant), Cate Ryan, Maddy Kalady, Jack Ryan, Annie Ryan, Maeve Kalady, Will Ryan, Quinn Fincke, and the Great Grandmother of Romeo Tallant.
Tish graduated from Little Flower Elementary School 1951, Mount St Joseph Academy, Class of 1955, and Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital School of Nursing 1958 with her RN degree. She was married on June 24, 1961. As a Nurse, she worked at Chestnut Hill Hospital, for most of her years there in the Emergency Room where she became the Nurse Manager.

In lieu of flowers we ask that you spend time with your family and friends and share a story about Tish.
