Obituary: Jeannie Marie McNamara


Jeannie Marie McNamara (February 2, 1931 – October 27, 2020)

Jeanne Marie McNamara, 89, of Carroll Valley, passed away on Tuesday,
October 27, 2020 at St. Joseph Ministries, Emmitsburg.

Jeanne Marie was a middle school English teacher in Maryland for almost
a decade. She then moved to California where she ran a Bed & Breakfast
for 23 years and cared for her father.

She retired to the Fairfield area to be close to friends and to dedicate her
later years to promote the teachings of the Divine Will. She formed a study
group in her home to this end that has continued for the past 25 years.

Jeanne Marie was preceded in death by her parents Dennis and Vincentia
and her lifelong friend, Linda Duffy. She is survived by her devoted friend
and caregiver, Maria Henry and many dear friends in Christ.

She has left her mark on Carroll Valley and the surrounding areas by
commissioning the statue, “The Presentation”. You will find this little statue
at that homes of people who knew Jeanne Marie and her special devotion
to the Blessed Mother.

Her friends would want you to know that Jeanne Marie was brilliant,
generous, genuine and devout.
