Ann McCarty Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce that Ann Louise (Ferranti) McCarty, 77, a lifelong resident of Leominster, passed away early Saturday morning on October 7, 2023 at Leominster Hospital surrounded by her loving family. Ann was born on November 30, 1945 the daughter of the late Joseph and Lucy (DiMarzio) Ferranti. Ann graduated from Leominster High School in 1963 and for 30+ years, was the engine that drove the success of McCarty Limousine Service, a business founded by her husband, James McCarty Sr. Prior to her work at the Limo Service, Ann was a licensed hairdresser. During those hairdressing years, she met her lifelong companion and husband James Sr. and were married on a beautiful fall day on October 8, 1967. In addition to her work at McCarty Limo, Ann was a dedicated homemaker raising her two boys. Ann loved to travel and took several vacations with her husband along with family trips to the Cape. Las Vegas and Disney World were some of the regular destinations but her most memorable trips were to Monte Carlo in the late 80’s and again in the early 90’s. Ann retired after McCarty Limo was sold in 2000 and started doing the “snowbird thing” in Vero Beach, Florida while spending her summers at Great Island on Cape Cod. Ann loved spending time with her new friends in Florida and especially when her new grandchildren would come down while her son, Jim Jr lived in Florida. Ann’s smile would light up a room and her laugh was infectious. She loved spending her nights out with family and friends, hosting holidays and many other occasions at home, The Cape, or Vero.
