Catherine (“Cathy”) Louise Carey of Mount Dora, FL joined her Lord and Savior upon passing peacefully on July 3, 2022.  Cathy was born to Harley and Dorothy Warren on their farm in Little Sioux, Iowa on November 4, 1928.  She met her future husband, and the love of her life, Melvin “Dale” Carey while both were studying at the Chillicothe (MO) Business College after Dale returned from his service in WWII.  They were married on April 16, 1948 and moved to Orlando, then to Temple Terrace in 1955 and then to Jacksonville in 1965.  Dale passed in 2012 and in 2015 Cathy moved to Mount Dora, FL to be closer to her sons.  Cathy built her career as a highly successful executive administrative assistant.  Her love and devotion to her husband, her three sons and grandson and to her countless family members and friends were both awe-inspiring and exemplary.  She was a truly wonderful person who will be missed.  Heaven is shining brighter because of Cathy.

Cathy was preceded in death by her husband Dale Carey (January 26, 2012) and her brother Harley J. Warren (Denver, CO), and is survived by her son Richard B. Carey (Mount Dora), son and daughter-in-law Randolph D. and Kathy Carey (Townsend, GA), son David W. Carey and his partner Jose Figueroa (Mount Dora), her grandson and his wife Matthew and Lauren Carey (Marietta, GA), her great grandchildren, Lienna Grace Carey and Ethan Miller Carey, her sister Patricia Heisterkamp (Onawa, IA), her brother and his wife Richard and Janice Warren (Omaha, NE), her sister-in-law Norma Warren (Denver, CO) and a large extended family.

A celebration of Cathy’s life will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2022 at 2:00PM at Arlington Congregational Church, 431 University Blvd N, Jacksonville, FL 32211.  A family service will also be held in Dawn, MO in September.
