Ann McCarthy, 87, of Urbana passed away Monday, December 17, 2012 in Mercy McAuley Center, Urbana.
She was born November 24, 1925 in Urbana, OH, the daughter of the late Emmett and Isabelle (Leonard) Sweetman.
Ann was a graduate of Urbana High School and a member of St. Mary Church in Urbana. She was employed for 20 plus years with the local office of the Columbia Gas company in Urbana. She will be remembered as a fun individual who enjoyed life.
She is survived by her brother-in-law, Robert Callaghan, her niece and nephews, Ann Callaghan, Steven (Amy) Callaghan and Ned (Kathryn) Callaghan all of Greensboro, NC. We have such wonderful memories of Ann and her husband Charlie. Our Christmas celebrations would not start until Ann & Charlie arrived. Ann had a unique sense of humor and was always fun to be around. You would know she was in the room because of all the laughter. Ann loved to play cards like bridge and Phase 10 and she was an accomplished bowler. Ann McCarthy was the best Aunt anyone could ever have. We are glad she is in God’s loving arms.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles G. McCarthy and her sister, Lois Callaghan. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 28, 2012 in the St. Mary Church Urbana with Father Gregory Konerman officiating. Visitation will be held from 9-9:45 in the church prior to the Mass. Burial will follow in Oak Dale Cemetery, Urbana.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Mary Church, 231 Washington Avenue, Urbana, OH 43078. Services are entrusted to VERNON FUNERAL HOME, Urbana. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.vernonfh.com.
