Carmen K. McGill
Carmen K. McGill, of Orange, passed away peacefully on March 22, 2023.

She graduated from St. Mary’s High School and held a degree in Psychology and a certification in Substance Abuse Counseling from Lamar University in Beaumont, which she used to serve the community for several years.

Carmen was a consummate protector. She was elegant and poised, intentional and honest, steadfast and true. She both loved deeply and is deeply loved by all of those who were around her. Carmen enjoyed nature and gardening, and she was very proud to have earned her Master Gardener certification and to have used those skills in the community. She also greatly loved going to the lake to fish, take in the beauty of nature, and spend treasured time with friends and family; so many of our fondest memories were made there with her.

Carmen is preceded in death by her parents, Eddie and Judy Johnson, of Orange; her brothers, Joey and David; and her sister, Bernadette.

She is survived by her husband, James McGill, Jr., of Orange; her daughter, Jamie, son-in-law, Chris, and granddaughter, Amorin. Carmen is also survived by her sister, Cynthia, and sisters-in-law Fay, Ginger, and Doris. She was also blessed to have a whole host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews, all of whom she loved dearly.
