Roxanne McCarthy, age 64, of Hopwood, PA, sadly passed away on October 1, 2020. Roxanne had a generous spirit, extraordinary intelligence, and an irreverent sense of humor. She had a unique ability to convert strangers to friends wherever she went and was passionate about helping people, cooking, and community.

After working as a lawyer in New York City, Roxanne left her legal career to raise her three children in New Jersey, later pursuing a career as a therapist and earning her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. She later relocated
to the Uniontown area, where she opened a restaurant in Hopwood, Dr. McCarthy’s Kitchen. She
also served on the board of Genesis House, a non-profit, faith-based residence for men moving
through the recovery process. Roxanne also volunteered as a counselor and assisted with
