Hello. I'm considering a quit claim deed to transfer my house to my two adult children. My deceased wife's name is still on the house. Can I in one filing:
1) have my wife's name removed from the deed?
2) have my two adult children added?
3) have my name remain on the deed?

You deed the house to your children. You'll need to have your wife's death certificate. Then a new deed. That said there are some tax issues that make what you want to do a bad idea, So before you hit Legal Zoom. Go ask a real lawyer to advise you of the income tax ramifications among anything. You can do it but check with a lawyer to figure out how to do what you want and not get whacked with taxes.
