Marjorie McCarthy Obituary

Marjorie Ruth McCarthy
Marjorie Ruth McCarthy

August 21, 1929 - March 10, 2019
Born in Iowa
Resided in Cupertino, California


With the same grace and peace she lived her life, Marjorie Ruth McCarthy left this world on March 10. 2019. She was joyfully welcomed into heaven by her beloved husband Kevin McCarthy.
The only thing big enough to eclipse our sadness is the joy in knowing she lived a full and vibrant life. Marge was born and raised in Clarion, Iowa. She met her husband Kevin in Las Cruces, New Mexico and they married April 16, 1955. They lived in Alamogordo New Mexico until they moved to California in 1958. They bought a home in Cupertino and together they raised their five children and welcomed 10 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Nothing made Marge more proud than her family, which also included many of her children’s friends.

Marge will forever be remembered for her commitment to her large family, her love for camping and adventures, her obsession with penny slots, her savvy card skills, her gravy, rolls and fully stocked pantry. Marge was a longtime member of St. Joseph’s of Cupertino where you could find her most Sunday’s.

She leaves behind her children, Patricia (Jeff) , Kathleen (Paul), Kevin (Suzanne), Thomas (Rowena), Nancy (Phil), and adopted daughter Sue (Dennis); Grandchildren, Amberley (Brian), Shannon (Vincent), Darren, Caitlin, Allison, Jacob, Ashley, Michael, Rachelle, Kristin; Great-grandchildren, Makayla, Tyson, Josephine, McKenzie, Olivia and Elijah.
