  1. Mrs. Carmody was probably the best Mother I’ve ever encountered besides my own. She is what every mother aspires to. Mother of 12 and all have done so well…every single one. Everyone loved her and listened to her.. Cathleen would always say…well…Virginia says… and her words were always right. She knew children and people. She was quietly perfect.

  2. I never met Mrs Carmody, however, I worked for one of her children Tom. As a mother of two I can’t imagine having twelve children. What an amazing women she must had been, Tom is a witty, smart, reliable and good citizen. I imagine his traits were Inspired by his mother and father and their legacy will continue through their children. To all of the siblings, cherish the memories.

  3. We are with you and your family in prayer. We pray God surrounds you with the feeling of peace and wonderful memories of your loved one. Hold tight to each other and cherish life each day.
    Our love, The Steinhoff’s

  4. Pat and Rick we are very sorry for you loss. From the stories we have heard from you both your mom was amazing! Don and Cindy Asher. (See raised you!)
