(Cable II#79 (fb) - BTS) - Jane was happily married to Andy, with two sons and baby, Sue, and they lived in a suburban home (see comments).

(Cable II#79 (fb) - BTS) - Andy planned to take the boys on a camping trip, while Jane would stay home with Sue.

(Cable II#79) - Jane served dinner as Andy and the boys discussed their camping trip, and she reminded Andy to take a map and lots of food. 

carmody-jane-cable-tombstone(Cable II#79 - BTS) - Shortly after arriving at the camp, Andy was possessed by the alien Aentaros, after which he purchased numerous weapons and assaulted Madison Square Garden where Randall Shire was speaking. When Cable stopped and contained Andy, Aentaros forced him to commit suicide, allowing the alien to escape his form.

    Cable subsequently resolved that after he had eliminated the threat of the Undying that he would tell Andy's family that his father had not died in vain.

(Cable II#84 - BTS) - Cable and his associates thwarted the threat of the Undying.

(Cable II#84 - BTS) - As Jane knelt by Andy's grave, Cable approached alongside his ally Irene Merryweather, assuring her that her husband was a good and decent man (as he had seen when given a glimpse of the future of the Fates that allowed him to prevent the Aentaros-possessed Andy from harming anyone else). 

    Jane thanked him and asked his name, and he introduced himself and Irene by their first names, after which he continued that he appreciated that Andy's death was a terrible loss and that while words did not mean much at time such as this, he assured her that had not died in vain. He further noted that Andy had died preventing the deaths of many others. 

    Although she didn't understand what had happened, Jane felt she could trust him, and she thanked him. She then noted that she had to go, as her children were waiting. 

Comments: Created by Robert Weinberg, Michael Ryan, and Andrew Pepoy.

    It was a nice touch that Cable followed up with Andy's widow so she didn't think he went crazy and/or was a suicidal/terrorist.

    He lived in some suburban region, and he took his kids on a camping trip by car. After arriving there, he was possessed and then drove to Manhattan. This would make we think that he lived not too far from Manhattan, or else why wouldn't Azazel have chosen someone closer?

Carmody should be distinguished from:

Sue Carmody

Aka "Baby Sue"

Presumably her name is short for Susan, Suzanne, Suzanna, or something comparable.

(Cable II#79 (fb) - BTS) - Jane was happily married to Andy, with two sons and baby, Sue, and they lived in a suburban home (see comments).

(Cable II#79 (fb) - BTS) - Andy planned to take the boys on a camping trip, while Jane would stay home with Sue.

Note: As far as I could see, Baby Sue was not pictured on panel. Odd that she got a first name, but her brothers, who featured strongly into the back-story showing Andy to be a good father and family, did not.
