Vivian McCarty

Vivian “Maxine” McCarty, 83, of Kinmundy, passed away at 4:45 p.m. Monday, March 24, 2014 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Pagel Funeral Home in Edgewood, with the Rev. Steve Neville officiating, with visitation from 9 to 11 a.m. prior to service. Burial will be at Elder cemetery in rural Farina. Memorials may be made to Alzheimer’s Association. Pagel Funeral Home, Edgewood, is handling the arrangements.

Vivian was born on May 8, 1930 in Kinmundy, the daughter of Ralph Ervin and Mary Murtle (Mulvaney) Perry. She was the youngest of 12 children. She married Richard “Dick” McCarty on June 19, 1947. He passed away in April 1998.

She was a home maker most of the time, but did work as a waitress from time to time. She was an avid bingo player and enjoyed reading mystery books, western paperbacks, and religious books as well as her Bible. She was a Southern Baptist, but if there was not a Baptist church where she lived, she found a church to go to. She was active in all the churches that she attended through her gift of playing music and praising her Lord and Savior for over 53 years. She was known as “Aunt Mac” to her many nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her two sons, Richard McCarty (wife Johanna) of Hillsboro and Kevin McCarty (wife Wanda) of Dietrich; two daughters, Elaine Branyon (husband Gerald) of Cold Water, Miss., and Mara Zeleznak (husband Gary) of New Lenox; seven grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband; brothers, Charles, Paul, Manford, Harold, Lawrence, Cleo, and Chester; and sisters, Mildred, Ruth, Bulah, and Jeniece.
