It is with profound sadness that the O’Carroll family announces the sudden and unexpected death of Cindy O’Carroll on April 25th.  She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Charles A. O’Carroll, Jr. and their son, Ryan, both of Potomac.  The daughter of the late Rose and George Less, Cindy was born in  North Adams, Massachusetts, and grew up in the Berkshires.  She graduated from Bridgewater State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  She moved to Maryland in 1981, and began her work that year at Beverly Farms Children’s Center of Montgomery Child Care Association, starting as a Group Leader in the After School Program.  She was promoted to Assistant Director and then Director in 1984, in which role she oversaw the relocation of Beverly Farms to its current location at Ivymount School in 1985 and its expansion to a site at Beverly Farms Elementary School in Potomac in 1998.  During her 37 year career, Cindy O’Carroll provided joyful and loving care to thousands of Montgomery County children.  She was passionate about her work, about the welfare of the children in her care, and about her colleagues.  She believed that all children, including children with special needs, deserve high quality care, which she worked tirelessly and devotedly every day to provide.  In 2011 the Maryland General Assembly recognized Cindy’s “distinguished career by which she leads an exemplary legacy to the children of Montgomery County.”  Friends may call at DeVol Funeral Home, 10 East Deer Park Drive, Gaithersburg, MD on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 from 2 PM to 4PM and 6 PM to 8 PM where a funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at 10 AM.  Interment will follow at All Souls Cemetery, Germantown, MD.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Cindy’s memory to Potomac Community Resources, 9200 Kentsdale Drive, Potomac, MD 20954
