Mary Carroll Funeral

$1,615 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 30 people in 24 days
Mary Carroll was a beloved member of the Frankford community.  The Mayor of Church Street,  everyone's "Security Guard", 10 year member of Catholic Daughters' Court St. Francis de Sales. Parishioner at St. Joachim Catholic Church, a  beloved  fixture at St. Mark's Episcoal Church.  Mary touched many lives.  Whatever was happening, Mary was there supporting with her presence, helping ou, and sharing her joy. Many people consider her their sister, aunt, mother figure, and friend.  But Mary had no living family to help bury her.  If you would like to help, please make a contribution.  We are looking to help with any funeral expenses and possibly reimburse a private benefactor some of the $1,000 in  vet bills to get Mary's beloved cat Rocky back to health. ( if there would be any excess funds from actual expenses they would be split between two of Mary's favorite places, St.Mark's and The Padre Pio Prayer Center.)

Mary had a very fitting send off. Last night many people that knew her well shared their memories of Mary and how she made us laugh and smile. They spoke of her humility, generosity, and humor. The Catholic Daughters prepared a meal and many others helped with food, setting up and cleaning. The friars made sure everything was spruced up. Father Higgins joined us too. It was a joyous evening!
This morning was the most beautiful funeral Mass I've been too. The Capuchin Franciscan Friars put a lot of care and love into every aspect of the Mass from the readings, to the music, to Fr. John's touching homily. Many friends of Mary were there including her friends from the Northeast Club, from St.Mark's, and St. Joachim. Several people brought flowers for Mary. The Mass started with a song Mary would have loved-"When the Saints Go Marching In."
It felt like love and family in church today which fits very well since Mary considered everybody fanily-"Call me aunt, call me sister, call me mom, they are my brothers." Now she is with the Father. We love you Mary.
Thank you to everyone who helped in anyway.

I have been remiss in sharing that Mary was always a faithful member of Keep the Faith in Frankford. She attended werkly prayer services with the group and was at all activites such as Al Stark Community Days. Mary was involved in so many parts of Frankford, but this one meant so much to her and her loss has left a painful void with the group.

Many of you have reached out to offer help and food. Please reach out to me again to let me know what you would like to help with.
