Mary Katherine Carey

April 30, 1939 ~ January 22, 2022 (age 82)


Mary Katherine Carey, mother, loving grandmother, sister, and friend, died in her home on Saturday, January 22, 2022.  She was 82.

Mary was the middle of five siblings born to Arthur and Leona in Saginaw, Michigan.  She attended Michigan State University and went on to complete a Master’s degree in Speech and Language Pathology. 

Her profession took her to the Chicago area where, in addition to teaching, she enjoyed volunteering and decades of fun in the city.

Mary was adored by her husband, Michael Carey (deceased). Together, they traveled extensively. They spent summers in Northern Michigan, where she nurtured her love of nature and countless friendships.

In addition to being a teacher, Mary was a life-long learner.  She was curious about people and our world. 

She had a deep appreciation for the arts, especially classical music, and shared this passion with friends and family.   She is survived by her four children, 3 siblings, and 2 grandsons.

Services for Mary will be held at the Chapel at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church in Scottsdale on Saturday, January 29th, at 11am.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of the causes that were significant in her life:  The Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, Phoenix's 5 Art Circle, Salt River Intergroup, and the Barrow Neurological Institute. 

Our family wishes you peace and blessings.
