Obituary for Patricia McCarty

June 9, 1959 - December 17, 2020
Elyria, Ohio | Age 61

Loving Mother, Sister, Aunt, Friend


Patricia Eileen McCarty, 61 of Elyria, passed away on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at a local hospital due to complications from COVID 19. Patti tragically contracted the corona virus after undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer.

Born June 9, 1959 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Dr. James Patrick McCarty and Mary Keefe McCarty, Patti was the second of five children. Her early childhood was spent in Wisconsin, Washington DC, Ft. Campbell Kentucky, and El Paso, Texas, before her father retired from the military and the family settled in Dallas. Patti received her bachelor's degree from the University of Texas in 1982 and began her Social Services career working with troubled and disadvantaged young women. After changing her career direction, and much to her family's surprise, the sun loving, warm weather worshipping Patti accepted a Human Resources position in Cleveland, Ohio.

Settling into her new life and her new environment, Patti enjoyed time with friends and traveling for her job. Her greatest joy however, was being mother to her two amazing children, Meredith and Hayden.

Patti will long be remembered for her laugh and her love of family. Although our hearts ache as we mourn her loss, her spirit lives on through her friends, family, and anyone who knew her, and the impact she had on our lives.

Patti is survived by her children, Meredith Klopp of Cleveland, Ohio, and Hayden Klopp of Bloomington, Indiana; Drs. Moira McCarty and Patrick Schnell of Brooklyn, New York, Brian and Marla McCarty of Kerrville, Texas, and Colin McCarty of Dallas, Texas, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. We are especially grateful for her circle of friends from her Recovery Group who brought her comfort and peace and had a special place in her heart as she fought to live her best life. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Michael Sean McCarty.
