Jennie McCarthy, beloved wife for over 68 years of Bob McCarthy, passed away on April 14, 2022, surrounded by her devoted family.
Born on July 29, 1927, she was a lifelong resident of Westport. Jennie wore many hats in her very rich life, including working with Embalmers Supply, the Westport Board of Education and co-owning a deli with her sister, Margaret. But her most cherished role was creating a loving home for her family, who will miss her dearly and keep her in their hearts always.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her four children: Kevin McCarthy (Beth) of Westport, Brian McCarthy (Lena) of Fairfield, Kathy Sabitsky (Stan) of Milford, and Brennan McCarthy (Jenny) of Westport. Jennie also leaves nine grandchildren: Justin, Sarah, Kaitlin, Josh, Matt, Nick, Zach, Jack and Charlie; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 20, at 10 a.m., at the Church of the Assumption, 98 Riverside Avenue, Westport, CT. Burial will immediately follow at Willowbrook Cemetery, 395 Main Street, Westport, CT.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
