McCarrick, Claire M. 97, of Moab, Utah passed away on Saturday,

May 25th, 2019 at the Canyonlands Care Center in Moab, Utah. She was born on August 23rd, 1921 in Harrison, NJ to William and Catherine Melesky (nee) Wojciehowsky. After finishing high school Claire worked part-time in her auntís hair salon and as a secretary at Western Electric, a subsidiary of AT&T. It was there that she met her husband, Edward McCarrick. They married on June 10th, 1950 and lived in Cedar Grove, NJ for 25 years. Claire was devoted to her home and family and loved all animals, particularly rust-colored cats. She and Ed enjoyed playing bridge, learning ballroom dancing, and both were avid travelers. They especially loved visiting our countryís national parks.

Upon Edís retirement, they moved to Moab in 1975. Ed served as a seasonal park ranger at Arches National Park and he and Claire shared in many explorations of the park and the surrounding area. They were happily married for 42 years. Claire is survived by her nieces, Marie Wright (nee) Melesky and Carol Handville (nee) Melesky, her grandnieces, Suzanne, Diane, Kristin, Lisa, and Katie, and four great grandnieces and two great grandnephews. Claire is predeceased by her husband Edward McCarrick, her parents William and Catherine Melesky, and her brothers, Henry, Alfred, and Clifford Melesky. Special thanks to her friends Lois Cooper, Anna Reposa, and Richard Anderson for all their devotion and loving care. And many thanks to the staff at the Canyonlands Care Center for their compassion and kindness to Claire in the last two years of her life.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 17th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Francis Episcopal Church, 250 Kane Creek Blvd., Moab, Utah.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
