Kelly McCarthy, Our Hero

On January 28, 2018, Kelly Sherman McCarthy passed away peacefully after a four-year battle with cancer. She was a wife, mother, sister and friend.  Beloved.  A fighter and an optimist, Kelly gave strength to all who knew her allowing us to believe she would beat the odds. Her story is one of love, friendship, and courage.

Kelly leaves behind her husband Rob (Rocky), their daughters Ruby and Kaya, her son Jesse, his wife Lesli and Kelly's two grandchildren, Jayden and Leilanie and her "son" Johnny Hopper.  Also her sister, Dara Sherman McCarthy.

We would like to help ease the financial burden that years of medical bills have placed on the family. We are establishing a fund to put toward the payment of these bills and other financial challenges the family still faces.

Although broken, we thank you with all our hearts.

Dara Sherman McCarthy, Kelly's sister
