August 20, 1959-July 8, 2019
MOLINE — Isabel L McCarthy, 59, of Moline, IL, passed away Monday, July 8, 2019 at Unity Point Trinity, Rock Island, IL.
Isabel was born August 20, 1959 in Moline, IL to Florencio and Naum (Lopez) Mier. She has been happily married to Kevin G. McCarthy since September 22, 1979. Together they built a home that welcomed family, friends, and so many others.
To know Isabel was to know a woman who loved selflessly, without agenda or reservation. She was a woman who fully embraced the love and joy of family. Isabel was the kindest and most supportive wife, mother, daughter, sibling, friend, and confidant. As Nana, her heart overflowed with love for her two granddaughters - as anyone who was on the receiving end of her proud photo sharing moments knew. Her smile was biggest with family and at the beach. She had a contagious and unstoppable laugh that could warm an entire room. She epitomized hard work and dedicated 22 years to Deere & Company.
Left to honor Isabel and carry on her loving spirit include her husband, Kevin; children, Marci (Bob) Strupp, Holly Springs, NC, Danielle (Lewis) DeJaegher, Spokane, WA, Samantha McCarthy, Moline, IL and Morgan (Jacob) Crowe, Evans, GA; grandchildren, Charlotte and Huxley; parents, Florencio and Naum Mier, Moline, IL; sisters, Linda Foster, Blue Grass, IA, Mary Ellen Mier, Fayetteville, AR, and Rebecca Welvaert (Don Geisler), Moline, IL and brother, Marcelino (Micheale) Mier, Milan, IL.
