Laura McCarty of Granite Shoals, age 56, was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven on Friday, September 27th, 2019. Laura is survived by her children, Dustin Hulling and Hailey McCarty; her husband, Brian McCarty; her parents, Marbeth and James “Bo” Casimir; sister, Denise Minton (Jeff); and niece, Lindsay Minton. Laura was a passionately devoted mother, a dedicated wife, a gracious daughter, a loving sister, and a fiercely loyal and generous soul to all of her friends who she blessed with her warmth and kindness.

Laura was born on February 13th, 1963, in Corpus Christi, Texas. From a very young age, she charmed everyone around her with a lively sense of humor and playful spirit. She showed great artistic talent, which she pursued and developed throughout her entire adult life. Laura also developed a knack for helping others, and dedicated much of her free time to bringing joy to everyone around her. Due to her charitable nature, Laura always dreamed of being a mother.

Laura’s dream came true when she was blessed with her children, Dustin (25) and Hailey (16). She poured her entire heart and soul into raising them both to have outstanding character and goodwill. Laura married the love of her life, Brian McCarty in Austin, Texas, on March 9th 2002, and committed all of herself to her family and the Lord. She was a devout Christian and was always working to better herself through the teachings of God. She used the artistic expertise that God bestowed upon her to create special gifts for others that will be cherished forever.

Laura will be sorely missed and will live on dearly in the hearts of all those she touched. Her memorial will be held on Friday, October 4th, at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home at 1805 Highway 281 North, Marble Falls, TX. Visitation will be held at 1:30pm and service begins at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, loved ones are encouraged to contribute to McCarty Family’s GoFundMe page.

“God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your lovely face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best.”

There is an empty space in my heart that Laura used to occupy. She was such a beautiful person in every sense of the word. Always grateful for the little things. Always quick with a prayer, or words of encouragement. She was a true example of what is means to be a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. The light that He gave her shined through in everything she did. And she touched each one of us in a very special way. If I were able to use just one word to describe her, it would be "Love". Each one of us will grieve her loss in his or her own way. But I think there is something of great importance that binds all of us together. And that is the memory of what an honor and blessing it was to have crossed paths with her. And to have her be a part of our lives. The Lord brings people into, and out of, our lives according to His greater purpose. And His timing is always perfect. This is something that is difficult for us to fully grasp. He sees the big picture, and we don't. He knows the reasons for all things, and we don't. But when we join Him in His eternal Kingdom, we will know as well. And Laura will be right there with us to share in the joy. May the blessings and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with her family, and all of her friends during this time of grief.

What a shock to open the paper and learn that sweet generous Laura is gone. She always cared so much about others, especially the children and was such an inspiration to all. She saw beauty everywhere.

I am at a loss. My mind is reeling. My heart is with her family today.. I had no idea of her passing. My son Anthony and I met her about 11 years ago when she became his caregiver at daycare or 'his other mother' as she informed me the first day. They had an unexplainable bond. She was often like a mother to me. Opening her home and her family to us. I am at a loss in this moment and my heart is literally broken knowing that over something silly we hand been in touch for the last two years. We are so blessed to have known her and been loved by her. May God forgive me and let her hear my heart. I am so truly sorry and I wish with all my heart we could be there today. We send prayers for peace for her family. God bless them.

Laura you were so kind and accepting to this Kansas girl. We shared so many things in common in our prior lives. I know that God sent you to take me under your wings. She was so proud of her family Dustin and Hailey she loved every minute being with you and sharing in your adventures. I am so sorry for the pain you going through.Prayers for you all.

I will always treasure the friendship I shared with Laura which began when I was Hailey’s 1st grade teacher at HLES. The class soon became a family. I am saddened by losing a part of our family. Laura will be missed.

We were just getting to know each other through Brushes with Cancer, but she was already special to me. I am deeply saddened by the loss your family is enduring. I will never forget her kindness, her love of family, her gift of painting, and her smile. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves us as long as they are still alive in our hearts; through us, they live on.

Laura, our forever angel...we will hold you in our hearts and memories. You painted our world with your artwork.
When we look up at the sunsets, we will know you are there...an amazing artist, friend, and mom to Hailey and Dustin.

Sweet sweet Laura. I am so stunned by your passing. When I got my diagnoses of cancer you were so loving to me. You sent me a necklace you made, and some prayer books. We never met in person but I felt like I've known you forever. I am going to miss our conversations. I just still can't believe you're gone. Rest In Peace. I know you are in God's arms. Sending prayers up for your family.
