Gloria Theresa McCarty
Gloria Theresa McCarty, 93, formerly of the Town of Ashford passed away peacefully Friday, May 12, 2023 at Froedtert West Bend Hospital. She was born on August 9, 1929 in Milwaukee, the daughter of Bernard and Loretta (nee Liebel) Grohall. The family moved to West Allis when Gloria was 3 years old. She spent all her summers growing up with her Grandma Liebl at her cottage on Round (now Kettle Moraine) Lake. She graduated from West Allis Central High School in 1947 and met her future husband John at Lake Resort when on vacation in 1949. On October 20, 1951, Gloria was united in marriage to John F. “Bud” McCarty by Gloria’s uncle Rev. Edward Grohall at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in West Allis. They moved to the family farm in 1955, a great adjustment for Gloria. She loved sewing, knitting (making many sweaters), gardening and swimming. Gloria was also an avid reader and an excellent cook and baker; the McCarty’s never had trouble hiring farmhands as they all greatly enjoyed Gloria’s meals.
