Cynthia McCarty Obituary

Cynthia D McCarty – February 6, 1937 to May 23, 2023

Our beloved mother, grandmother and great great grandmother Cynthia D McCarty passed away on May 23rd at Lakeland Health Center, New Jersey.

Cynthia D McCarty was born to Lilian Savage and Cecil McCarty in Cold Spring, St. Andrew on the island of Jamaica in the West Indies.

She was very hard working, conscientious, tough but loving and kind. Before moving to the USA, she worked as a conductor on the Jamaica Omnibus Service (JOS) in Kingston, Jamaica.  When she arrived in the USA on February 8th, 1970, Cynthia had turned 30 years old and was ready to start her new life. She worked at a hospital as a nurse assistant until she had a slip and fall accident where she hurt her right knee and did several surgeries on it.  However, that did not slow Cynthia as she went on to work as a health care aid with Potomac Home until she retired.

Cynthia was married briefly to Vertel S Rose from November 17th, 1980 until their divorce in July 1983. Cynthia was a peaceful and loyal lady, full of integrity. At this stage in her life she chose truth over deceit to live her life in peace.

Cynthia was known for her tenacity. When she made up her mind to do something, it would get done. She was very kind and helpful to all her friends.  Cynthia had great friends who stood with her through thick and thin.  Even when offered to stay with her granddaughter in Canada, Cynthia refused – she didn’t want to leave her friends, Hackensack and her church community in New Jersey.

Cynthia is predeceased by her sisters Delcita Wellington and Zetilda McCarty and survived by her brother, Lambert Wellington, her children, Andrea Pusey Martin, Elma Clarke and Michael Phillips. Her grandchildren, Carene Ennis-Spence, Christopher Martin, Andrew Martin, Oneasha Martin, Staciann Marsh and Zaccheus Jones. Cynthia is also survived by her great grandchildren, J’Vaughn Smith, Jada-Kristin Spence, William Spence, Kierston Martin, Christina Martin, Christopher Jr Martin, Kaitlyn Martin and many nieces. 

Cynthia left us on May 23rd, but she will always be in our hearts. We will miss her dearly.
