MARIAN EDITH JANE MCCARTHY
Date of Passing: Oct 08, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
MARIAN EDITH JANE MCCARTHY
Marian is survived by her son Paul, of Bedford, NH, a sister, Doris Tibbs, a brother, Wesley Hull and a sister-in-law Edna Hull of Winnipeg. She is also survived by her grandchildren Christopher McCarthy and Alexandra Richardson of Charlotte, NC. Marian's husband Don predeceased her in 2019 and a daughter, Marcia passed away in 2018.
Marian will be remembered by her family and friends as a wonderful personality and the life of the party. She loved to entertain, and her holiday decorating and gourmet dinners were fantastic. But Marian gave back to the community through her work with the Junior League of Winnipeg, and her many hours of work at the River Heights Community Center. She was a dedicated sports woman and played tennis at Unicity, did her workouts at Re-fit and became an excellent golfer in her many years of membership at St. Charles CC.
Marian was a dedicated Christian woman of faith. She was a longtime member of Elim Chapel and Bethesda Churches. One of the greatest joys of her life was the association she and her husband Don had with the Billy Graham Association. This association led Marian and Don to several events around the world to experience the impact of that ministry. Don and Marian were sent to Russia to see the work that BGEA was doing in that country.
Marian loved to travel, and her many friends and family led her to travel to Europe, the Caribbean, across Western Canada and throughout much of the USA. She was fortunate to spend several winters with family and friends in Naples and Sarasota Florida. But she was a Winnipegger at heart and perhaps her best travels were to the Hull family summer home at Sandy Hook and her own family's times at Lake of the Woods.
During this difficult time of the Pandemic, there will not be a funeral service. The family will have a private memorial when the time is right for us to all gather to celebrate Marian's life.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Marion had a smile that would light up a room. She and Don would come to my parents' camp at the Lake of the Woods and have so so much fun together at dinner parties or going up the lake in the boat. I have a lot of happy memories of Marion. On behalf of my Mom (Elsie) and I, please accept our condolences for the loss of this amazing woman, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. - Posted by: Marla Klassen (Family friend) on: Oct 18, 2020
Our sincere condolences to the family in their loss. Marian was a very special person who brightened many lives. We have been blessed to enjoy the close companionship of Marian and Donovan for nearly forty years now and will deeply miss this. We are thankful for the blessings they brought into our lives and the example they set as God's good and faithful servants. We rejoice knowing that they are now both together in His loving hands for eternity. May they both rest in peace. Sincerely, Barrie and Valerie Smith - Posted by: Barrie and Valerie Smith (Dearest friends) on: Oct 16, 2020
I remember Mrs McCarthy from Bethesda, where my brothers and I grew up with Paul and Marcia. She was a lovely lady, always committed to the church and especially her family. Condolences to Doris and Wes, and especially to Paul's family. Don Lewis - Posted by: Don Lewis (friend of Paul, Marcia) on: Oct 15, 2020
