My favorite memory of Ann was catching up at holiday time. She was always such a pleasant, caring person. Ann - you'll be missed by all the lives you touched.
Sweet, beautiful Ann. I'm going to miss you and Richard coming to my workplace. I already do. Such a joy, always happy and with a smile. I miss you and Richard!

Oh how I will miss my beach buddy Ann , walking, looking for dolphins going along the shore, and her using her huge knowledge of birds to tell me the names of each group. Also will miss our Friday Starbucks coffee time while Dick went to play with his card group. Roger and I will also miss the extra cookies Ann would over when she made cookies for Dick snack time for the card group. Trying a new recipe also found a portion to our house. She really spoiled us. She was a loving , caring person, who we have been blessed to have in our lives. Can see them strolling heaven holding hands together ! What a gift they both have been to our world ! Love you Ann!

Ann was a kind, cheerful, and loving lady. We will miss seeing her working in her yard, her smile, and the the treats from her oven. What a loving person she was. We are grateful that God allowed our paths to cross with Dick and Ann.

Ann Catherine McCarthy
Ann McCarthy, 88, passed into heaven January 30th, 2022.
We lost our rock, and our angel this week. Her soulmate and husband of 65 years, (Richard) Dick McCarthy, followed her into heaven 3 days later.
Growing up in Baltimore she had many wonderful memories of the summers she spent at the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, and yearly vacations to Ocean City, MD. Those trips to the ocean installed in her the love she had for the ocean to the very end.
In her teen years, she was fortunate enough to live in NYC and enjoy every moment of it. Ann embraced all the culture that NYC had to offer, including performances around the city and Broadway. With that love came her degree in music. While attending college in Lakeland she met the love of her life, Dick. They started their lives together in Gainesville, and after living several places on the east coast came full circle to complete their lives in Florida. After retiring from the St. Lawrence Gas Company, she spent her time enjoying gardening and many hours at the beach.
Ann never had an ill word for anyone and lived her life in kindness to others. She was full of grace, and her faith was always with her. We are all so thankful to have experienced her love and the sunshine she brought into all our lives.
Predeceased by her parents Gene and Helen, and brother Joe. Ann is survived by her daughter and son in law, Patti and Mark, and two grandsons she adored, Derek and Kyle.
Ann donated her body for scientific research to the University of Florida College of Medicine.
Friends are invited to join the family Saturday, February 14th, 2022, begins 11:00 am at St. Michaels Catholic Church, 201 N 4th Street Fernandina Beach, FL 32034 for a Memorial Service. A Celebration of Life will follow at the Parish Hall.
