On Thursday, October 6, 2022 Carol “GG” McMahon, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully at home at the age of 86. Carol was born on March 26, 1936 in Staten Island, NY, to Arthur and Stephanie (Heil) Blake. Carol devoted several years caring for foster babies. She traveled and cruised with her best friend/sister-in-law, Grace, as well as enjoyed many family gatherings with her brother, Charlie. In her spare time, GG loved puzzles and time with her cats and, according to her great-grandson Bladen, watching the news. Most of all she adored the time spent with family.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Stephanie, and brothers, Charlie and Artie. She is survived by her daughter, Patti (George); granddaughters Nicole (John) and Christina (Derek); great-grandchildren, Riley, Delaney and Bladen.
A memorial visitation will take place at Strickland Funeral Home, 211 W. Third Street, Wendell, NC 27591 on Wednesday, October 12, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
