    Marion and Bill have a special place in our memories. Our family visits were delightful with the
    warmth and welcoming of their hospitality. We loved to visit our Carey cousins, and Marion’s
    gifts of inclusion and generosity, wisdom and humor were truly felt by all. Jane Fehrenbacher (Carey) and children.

  7. CandleVery sorry to hear of Marion’s passing. Marion and Bill were wonderful and friendly neighbors for many years. We will miss her. Our condolences to Fran, Bill, Tim, and Beth and all the Carey families.

  8. I knew Marion through the WOSJ and the Party Bridge group, and of course I would see her at Mass and other church activities. She was always dressed so nice and had a beautiful smile. She will be missed.

  9. CandleMarion and I go back many years. We have been friends at church and both served as Eucharistic ministers. Several times as Marion was hospitalized I had the privilege of bringing Jesus to her. Marion was a delightful and positive woman despite the many set backs that life has a way of passing to each of us.
    Marion, you will be missed but I feel assured that you are in heaven with our dear Lord and sharing time with Barbara Aylward.

  10. CandleMarion will be greatly missed by the various bridge groups she was in. She was a good player and a wonderful person as well as a gracious hostess and good cook. My sympathies to her family. Rest In Peace, Marion.

  11. So sorry to hear the loss of Marion
    I know she was at peace to be in her home her last days and having her children with her there.. my thoughts are with all the Carey family and to have the memories of days being with her before she passed ❤️
    She was a strong amazing Lady,
    a loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great grandmother
    She had a long life with a loving family
    May she Rest In Peace 🙏

    With sincere Sympathy

  12. CandleEvery time I saw Marion, she would comment about our Christmas letter that we sent to her each year since she came to our wedding in 1991. She was always interested in how our family was doing, and said that she always appreciated our updates on the boys. She showed genuine interest in our lives. She was warm and had an excellent sense of humor. I guess you would have had to develop something like that in order to raise six wonderful children. I know that she will me greatly missed, and that she will be enjoying her rewards in heaven.

  13. CandleMy deepest condolences to my very sweet and dear friend, Beth. I also extend my condolences to your entire family. A mother is so special, as we all know, and there is no replacement for her. God, however, is the greatest comforter. May He comfort you and your family at this time. I know that you will miss your beautiful mom, but may your fondest memories of her bring you peace and put a smile on your face in time. May she rest peacefully in Heaven. God bless you and your family always.

  14. We have known Marion for many years and have many fond memories of our times together. She was honest, supportive, full of good humor and always a good friend. We will miss seeing her at Mass and having our “chats”. Her beautiful smile will always be with us. Rest In Peace.
