Carol M. Carey, a longtime Beacon resident, passed away peacefully on April 11, 2024 with her family by her side, at the Kaplan Family Hospice Home in Newburgh, NY; at the age of 79.

Her greatest love was for her family, she never forgot a birthday, sometimes calling the day before, so she can still make bingo.

She is also survived by her three sisters and two brothers: Agnes (Steven) McKeon, Julia Richards, Anita (Al) Miller, Patrick (Debbie) Hurley Jr., and John (Donna) Hurley; and several nieces, nephews & friends.

Along with her parents, Carol was predeceased by her husband Charles Carey in October of 1988; her two sisters Bridget Milczewski in 1990, and Patricia ‘Trish’ Papula in 2016.
