    With much sympathy in the loss of Mary Ellen. We were neighbors for several years of Mary Ellen and Tom in Venice FL. Mary Ellen was such a sweet person, and we are glad we got to see her last year when she visited Augusta Villas. We will always remember her advice ” to pray to the Holy Spirit every day for patience”. We have needed that advice the last couple of years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

    We are very sad for loosing our very good friend and neighbor, here is Florida. She always had a smile on her face. One of the kindest and sincerest human being we have ever known. She sure will be missed by all here in Florida. May she rest in peace.

    Beautiful soul. we were next door neighbors for 10 years at Crescent Beach I was 9 years old to 18 years old. Just a great family and my heart hurts for my old friends, her children. What a great matriarch! Peace to all.

    Frank and I (Marianne) were fortunate to have had Mary Ellen for a neighbor in Venice, Florida. She was one the friendliest, kindest souls we have met in our journey and her reflection was her family. Mary Ellen loved life and had a friendly smile for everyone and when anyone from the family was visiting she never stopped smiling. Mary Ellen’s family had an angel in their midst who has left much love many warm memories to keep you warm. Siochain

    To all my McCarthy cousins: Please accept my sincerest condolences and heartfelt sympathy on Aunt Mary Ellen’s passing. I am so very sorry. It has been decades since we last saw each other but the photo above is EXACTLY how I remember my Aunt – smiling. Sending you (all) lots of hugs from Tampa Bay, Florida. With love, Laurie.

  • The Lang Family Posted January 19, 2022 6:29 pm

    So very sorry to hear this news. Mrs. McCarthy was a such a wonderful neighbor for many, many years at Crescent Beach. She was a genuine, kind, family centered person who always had time for everyone. We will miss her dearly. Crescent Beach will not be the same without her.

  • Fr. Paul D. Seil Posted January 20, 2022 11:43 am

    Dear McCarthy Family,
    My deepest condolences on Mrs. McCarthy’s passing away. Linda, John, Mary Karen and Molly: I always consider us all blessed to have grown up with the parents we had. As that generation continues to pass away, the best we can do is to try to emulate their Faith, Hope and Love.
    I am away until next Tuesday so, while unable to attend St Teresa’s tomorrow, I will offer Mass for her as soon as I can.
    Paul Seil

    To all the McCarthys,
    I am sorry for the loss of your wonderful mother. Yet, there is comfort in knowing that her smile is even brighter now as she sees the Lord and all who have gone before her.
    I was out of town and am sorry I could not be with you at St. Teresa’s on Friday. I will offer Mass for your mother this week and will remember all of you in my prayers as well.
    God bless.
    Jack Mattimore
