McCarthy, Ellen F.


Ellen F. McCarthy, age 71, of Cranston, passed away June 5, 2023 in her residence, surrounded by her family. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Christopher and Helen (Moffitt) McCarthy.

A hard worker, Ellen retired as a Vice President and Consumer Operations Manager at Santander Bank. She was a communicant of St. Mark Church.

A devoted Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and Friend, she demonstrated immeasurable  love, kindness, and support to her own and those who considered her their second Mom and Grandmother. She was often considered to be “tough,” but would always have those around her laughing with her humor. All who knew Ellen will remember her for her admirable sense of character, courage, selflessness, and work ethic.

She is survived by her son, John D. McCarthy and his partner Jennifer M. Davey of Cranston; siblings, Maria Olivier of Hampton, NH., Nancy Hagan of Providence, and Henry Sheehan of Las Vegas, NV.; grandchildren, Christopher J.McCarthy, Van Davey, and Timothy Davey; nieces, Michaela Olivier (Seth), and Deirdre Olivier; former daughter-in-law Kathleen P. McCarthy; and many friends whom she held close and considered family.  She was the sister of the late George Sheehan.

Her Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, June 9, 2023 at 10:00AM in St. Mark's Church, 9 Garden Ct, Cranston. Relatives and friends invited. In lieu of flowers, express your love to those you value. For tributes or directions,
