Frances Mary (nee Mulvaney) McCarthy, 76, of Sea Girt, NJ formerly of Maplewood passed away peacefully on May 10, 2014 at her home surrounded by her loving family.
Born and raised in Newark, NJ to the late John and Elizabeth (Maguire) Mulvaney, Fran lived in Maplewood where she and her late husband, Joseph P McCarthy raised their six children. In 1997, Fran moved to her home in Sea Girt. She was a communicant of St Mark's Church, Sea Girt and a member of its Rosary Society and Social Concerns Committee. She was also a member of the Women of Irish Heritage and the Jerry Lynch Social Club.
Fran was known for her hospitality, her wit, her kindness, and generosity. She loved wholeheartedly. Her strength, class, dignity, and perseverance were immeasurable. She loved her family, her friends, her country, her Irish heritage, a round of golf, painting her watercolors, walking the boardwalk, a good book, and a day on the Sea Girt beach.
She was special to many but was loved and will be missed by all. She certainly was one of a kind and how fortunate the world is to have known her.
Fran is survived by her six children, sons Christopher and his wife Carolyn, Daniel and his wife Meghan; four daughters, Tracey Tancredi and her husband Rocco, Lesley McCarthy, Kerry Lopez and her husband John, and Jaclyn O'Hara and her husband James. She is also survived by her nine grandchildren; Rocco, Michael, and Matthew Tancredi, Owen, Nolan, and Kelsey Rose McCarthy, Savannah Lopez, and Caroline and James O'Hara; her brothers John and Vincent Mulvaney, and her "sister" Catherine McHugh and all of her extended families.
