Mary Carroll – March 21, 2020

Mary Carroll, 76, of Toms River, NJ passed away on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Born to Anna and George Nathan on January 11, 1944 in New York, Mary grew up in a family of faith as they lived in NYC and later moved to Hoboken. She met her beloved husband of 46 years, Charles Carroll, and they were blessed with raising 5 children. After moving to Toms River in 1977, Mary actively lived her Roman Catholic faith as a parishioner of St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Toms River. Known by all for her compassionate heart, Mary’s volunteer work with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) brought great meaning to her in helping disabled veterans and their families. Mary was a kind heart in action reaching out to others in need, and became beloved by all who knew her for her empathy and ability to treat anyone like a member of the family.

Mary rejoins her beloved husband Charles, as well as her dear parents in the hearts of her family. Her memory will be honored by her loving children John Carroll (Dawn), Theresa Lecuyer, Patricia Frank, Richard Carroll, and Charles Carroll, her cherished grandchildren, Colleen, Jeffrey, Zakk, Haylee, Sierra, Mary, Shane, Derek, Patrick, and great-grandson, David, her beloved siblings, Theresa Cummings, Linda Reardon, and Martin Nathan, dear in-laws including Doris Peck and James Carroll, and many loved nieces, nephews and cousins.

Gatherings will be announced and shared by the family privately when details are available. Information for public services will be listed here when the information becomes available.

    shine upon her. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. AMEN

    If anyone heard these words “Well done my good and faithful servant” it is certainly my mother. She had a heart of gold and treated everyone with love and respect. She gave that trait to me. I love you MOM. May you enjoy your eternal reward. Until we meet again. ❤
