Patty Carmody – Rest in Peace

It is with great sadness that we announce that Patty Carmody, former community member, and longtime dear friend, joined the Heavenly Cloud of Witnesses on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at 10 pm from cancer, which she struggled with for the past few years. She is deeply loved and will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.

Arrangements are forthcoming. Please check back in the coming days.

    Patty was my best friend for 75 years and I’m heartbroken to see her go. One couldn’t ask for a better witness of
    Christ’s love.

    Dearest Patty helped me through the thick and thin of things during my six years at the High Desert Catholic Worker. Her devotion to the Gospel Message at the LACW and her dedication to ‘be there’ for her children, grandchildren and all the needy folks she encountered on the streets and in the prisons inspired me to strive to become more like Patty and more like Jesus. Many a night and many a day, she lifted me with her humor and her positivity. I will miss her and I am filled with gratitude that we were friends.
