Torrington- Stephanie A. Cummings-Piddock, 52, passed away Monday, June 1, 2020 at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, Torrington. She was the beloved wife of John F. Piddock. John and Stephanie met on America Online in 2001 and have been inseparable since. They married in 2008.

          Stephanie was born in New Haven on September 16, 1967, daughter of Dennis McCarthy, Sr., of Waxhaw, NC, and the late Josephine (DeRosa) McCarthy. She grew up in Ansonia and was graduated from Ansonia High School in 1985. She lived briefly in Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Seymour, CT before moving to Torrington in 2007.

            Stephanie studied elementary education at South Central Community College in New Haven and International Business offered by Vermont College of Norwich University. She really enjoyed her job at Sikorsky Aircraft where she was employed for six years. A growing desire to dedicate her life to the pursuit of justice became her passion. She enthusiastically spoke out for justice, making full use of the internet and social media. Stephanie was kind and charitable and had unlimited compassion and empathy for those in need. When not debating politics with her friends and colleagues, Stephanie enjoyed cooking, music, traveling, and spending as much time as she could with her children.

            Survivors, in addition to her father, Dennis, and husband, John, include three sons; Andrew Fogarty of Shelton, Alexander Cummings of Tempe, AZ, and Philip Cummings of Mesa, AZ; two brothers, Dennis McCarthy, Jr., of Waxhaw, NC, and Kyle McCarthy of Meriden; and three nephews.
