McCarty, Margaret

Margaret L. McCarty, 72, of Morenci, Mich., died Sept. 6, 2018, at Lynwood Manor in Adrian, Mich., where she resided the past several years.

She was born June 25, 1946, in Calumet, Mich., and lived her early life in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and I California before eventually settling in the Morenci area, where she made her home since.

A tragic automobile and train accident at age 26 caused her physical challenges that she endured the rest of her life. She proudly lived a very simple and independent life, and she was known to have a heart of gold. She loved to socialize, drink coffee and play Bingo. On Sept. 5, 1986, Marge married Richard L. “Dick” McCarty, and he preceded her in death on June 1, 1999.

She is survived by a daughter, Margaret Arno of Monroe; a son, Richard (and Nancy) Arno of Clayton; five grandchildren, Aaron, Ricky, Eric, Bobby, and Natasha; and 12 great-grandchildren. 

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Michael Tomasi.

Private interment will take place in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci. Arrangements were handled by the Eagle Funeral Home in Morenci.
