Lucille L. "Lou" McCarthy, beloved wife, mother and nana, was lifted to heaven on angels' wings on March 10.

Lucille, a daughter of the late Richard and Mabel Brown, was born in Tremont Township on Sept. 2, 1930.

Her husband, John "Jack" McCarthy, preceded her in death in October 2015.

Lucille was a lifelong resident of Pine Grove, except for residing at Lake Wynonah for about 10 years. Lou was a homemaker and later worked as a seamstress for the former Fox Knapp Inc. She treasured being a mother to her children and a nana to her grandchildren.

Lou had a heart of gold and was a wonderful friend. She was cherished by her husband of 65 years and was happiest when spending time with family. Lucille was a 1947 graduate of Tremont High School. She was raised in a loving family with three brothers and five sisters. In earlier years, she enjoyed roller-skating, bowling, sewing clothing for her children, keeping a beautiful home, cooking, fashion, and in later years, watercolor painting. She enjoyed vacationing along the New Jersey and Maryland seashore. In retirement, Lou and Jack spent the winter months in Myrtle Beach, S.C. She and her husband enjoyed traveling in the United States and attended Penn State Bowl Games.

Lou was a resident of Traditions of Hershey the last two years.

She was a lifelong member of The Most Blessed Trinity Church of Tremont.

In addition to her parents and husband, her brothers, Richard, Clyde and Herbert; her sisters, Martha, Ada, Alma, Marian, and Ruby; and her grandson, Patrick Curry, preceded Lucille in death.

She is survived by daughters, Ann, wife of Steve Weaver, Hanover, and Kathleen, wife of Robert Hepler, Cressona; son, John, husband of Tracey McCarthy, Lewisberry; grandchildren, Michael and Jennifer Curry, Mark and Megan Hepler; nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. March 19 at the church. Visitation will take place at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
