We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Vander Plaat Funeral Home
Anne Noel McCarthy, age 80, of Bridgewater, NJ formerly of Waldwick, NJ died peacefully on Thursday, June 30, 2022, surrounded by love. She was born in Queens, NY and had been a resident of Waldwick for 50 years prior to relocating to Bridgewater to be closer to her daughters. Anne was a faithful parishioner of St. Luke’s RC Church, Ho-Ho-Kus where she had been involved in numerous church groups throughout the years. In her early working career, Anne was an elementary school teacher before fulfilling the joys of her greatest job ever, motherhood! She dedicated her time to caring for and raising her five children, rarely missing a game or activity, all while volunteering her time to many organizations such as the PTO. Once her family was grown, Anne returned to the workplace at Lord & Taylor in the Garden State Plaza where she worked as a Sales Associate for 19 years. She had a spirited interest in sports, particularly tennis, attending the U.S. Open for many years and enjoyed time gathered with family watching football and basketball, especially the NCAA tournament. Anne is survived by her five children: Mark McCarthy and his wife Larissa, of Franklin Lakes, NJ, Kerry McCarthy of Bedminster, NJ, Kara Perry and her husband, Matthew of Bridgewater, NJ, Megan Foy and her husband, Jeffrey of Stow, MA, and Maura McGrail and her husband, Richard, of Bernardsville, NJ. She is also survived by her 9 grandchildren who were her pride and joy: Aidan, Shane and Morgan Perry, Emily McCarthy, Kaelyn, Avery and Tanner Foy, and Mackenzie and Dylan McGrail. Anne is also survived by her sister, Joan Rinaldi of North Salem, NY. The family will receive friends and family on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, from 3 – 7 pm at Vander Plaat Funeral Home, www.vpfh.com, 257 Godwin Avenue, Wyckoff, NJ.
