Nancy was born in New London on Dec. 10, 2007, the youngest daughter of Christopher T. and Patricia (McCarthy) Marr. We welcomed our Down Syndrome daughter as a gift of God and she delighted us all with her beautiful smile and, attention-getting "conversation", holding her own among her 10 home schooled siblings.
Besides her parents, she is survived by her brothers, Brian of Moscow, Idaho, Kevin, and Gordon; and her sisters, Michelle, Sharon, Emily, Laura, Julie, Tracy, and Vienna. She is also survived by her paternal grandparents, Harold and Diane (Blanchard) Marr of Kendall Park, N.J.; and her maternal grandparents, James and Louise (O'Donnell) McCarthy of Queensbury, N.Y.; as well as many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
Visiting hours will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at the Byles-Groton Memorial Home, 310 Thames St. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Presbyterian Church of Coventry, 55 Trowbridge Road, Coventry. Interment will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in Elmwood Cemetery, Searsport, Maine.
