Alona M. McQuaid, 80, of Gettysburg passed away on Sunday morning, January 21, 2024 to be with her Lord in heaven and with her heavenly family. Alona will be greatly missed by her family and friends that she leaves behind.

Born on August 3, 1943 in Gettysburg, PA, she was the daughter of the late John H. and Myriam M. Sanders. She was married to Thomas McQuaid of Gettysburg. She was previously married to Dale W. Trump for over 25 years.

Alona got her GED from Gettysburg High School. She was an extremely hard dedicated worker, working well past normal retirement age. She was an even better cook. Even working for the Gettysburg school district in the cafeteria and other cooking jobs along the way.

Alona had numerous waitressing jobs throughout her life which she loved Glenn’s, Lincoln Diner, Hillcrest Restaurant, Biggerstaffs, Hunterstown Diner, and Drummer Boy Campground as the Snack Bar Manager working alongside with her beloved daughter and granddaughters in the summers. She loved interacting with the customers, especially her regular customers that would come in. She’d know exactly what they wanted before they’d even sat down. She worked at Herff Jones in the camera optic department for over 20 years. She also loved working for Jacoby’s Transportation transporting special needs kids until finally retiring in her mid- seventies.

Alona enjoyed lots of things, but her favorites were cooking, baking, crocheting, going to the beach, family outings, hosting family holiday dinners, county music and a good glass of wine.
