She was preceded in death by her husband Howard McCarty.

Mrs. McCarty was born February 19, 1926 and raised in the Progress Community of rural Choctaw County, MS. Except for a few short stints elsewhere, she lived out most of her entire life in the same home within that community. She was employed as a factory worker for most of her adult life, retiring from the Wells Lamont Corporation in Eupora, after twenty-five years of service, in 1999. She possessed a pioneer spirit, and common sense approach about her, which allowed her to make the most of whatever situation in which she found herself. When life gave her lemons, she went about trying her best to make lemonade. She had an abiding faith in her Lord and Savior and remained a positive role model through her life. She was a faithful member and supporter of Providence Baptist Church in Choctaw County for more than fifty years. She deeply loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She truly enjoyed bringing the family together over her delicious home cooking and certainly leaves a wonderful legacy behind of being unequaled in her artful masterful way of making sure everyone had a favorite dish on the table. She strived to see that everyone felt at home around the kitchen table and had plenty of good food. All her family and friends knew she definitely had a special talent for preparing mouth watering meals which served to bring them together in a special way. She also loved being outdoors and devoted herself to outside activities such as growing flowers and tending a sizeable garden. She also had a passion for raising farm animals and pets. She especially enjoyed raising and tending to her beloved chickens. She never met a chicken she didn’t like. She will be remembered by family and friends as someone who was always willing to reach out to someone in need and help when and where she could. She routinely made many personal sacrifices in support of family, friends, and at times, total strangers as well. Oliver Funeral Home of Eupora is in charge of all arrangements. PAID OBITUARY
