Maher, Carol J. December 18, 1939 - February 6, 2024

           Carol J. Maher passed away on Tuesday February 6, 2024 at the age of 84.

           Carol was born in the Bronx in 1939. She proudly attended The Academy of Mount St. Ursula in the Bronx. In fact, at family functions, Carol and her sister, Kathleen could be heard to sing the school’s fight song, years after they had both left the Bronx. Carol later attended Good Counsel College in White Plains where she earned a B. A.

           Married in 1964, she relocated to Yonkers and the St. Jospeh’s parish. After spending several years raising her sons (Tom and Terry), she accepted a position as an elementary school teacher at St. Peter and Paul’s School in Mt. Vernon. Carol was a beloved teacher at the school for over 20 years. Additionally, the friendships that she made with her co-workers at St. Peter and Paul enriched her life immensely.

            In retirement, Carol spent as much time as she could with her grandchildren: Meaghan, Brendan, Ryan and Emma.

           Carol is survived by her sons, Tom and Terry, her grandchildren and her sister, Kathleen Schneller.

           Her warmth, kindness and enthusiasm for life shall be missed by all.

           Visitation will be held at McGrath’s on Monday February 12th from 4pm-8pm. Funeral Mass to be held at St. Joseph’s on Tuesday February 13th at 10:45 am. Internment at Gate of Heavan Cemetery.

    It is always special to be friends with the AMSU families. Some how getting together with Kathy when you were around was always fun. I always said it was like having a sister. I was looking forward to just one more beach and pool visit with Kathy, you and Mary. Somehow, I just better keep “Behaving myself” and be patient with God’s plan. Love and Prayers for you and your Family. “Connie From Connecticut “
