Homosassa, FL-Maggie Harbour McCarty, 95, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2020, at Peyton Hospice House in Lewisburg.
She was the youngest daughter of ten children born to Minor Sim Harbour and Mary Etta Sowards Harbour of Huntington, WV.
She was preceded in death by her husband and favorite golfing partner, Harold E. “Mac” McCarty, who, like Maggie, taught for 30 years in Cabell County Schools. Her sisters, Thelma Warren, Virginia Barker, Edna Barker, Ruth Bunch and Audrey Morgan, as well as her brothers, Lon, Nathaniel (Bud), Ed and Larry Harbour, preceded her in death, as did nephews, Dick Morgan, Richard Bunch and Harold Harbour.
She is survived by her only daughter, Leslee McCarty, of Lewisburg and Homosassa, FL, with whom she lived for the last several years. She also has many nephews and nieces, great-nephews and nieces and great-great ones, who live all over the U.S., and of whom she is very proud.
After retiring from teaching English (Catcher in the Rye!) and coaching girls golf at Barboursville High, she moved with Mac (who coached boys’ golf) to Sugarmill Woods, a retirement community near Homosassa, Florida. There she took an active role in women’s golf and they enjoyed their adopted community and travelled throughout the area playing in tournaments and making new friends.
At this time, there is not a planned memorial service, but there will be memorials and celebrations of life in Florida and West Virginia when the pandemic permits.
