Kathryn Lucille Carey, 77

December 31, 2019

Kathryn (Kathy) Lucille Carey, age 77, of Spencer, Indiana, went home to be with her Savior Monday night, December 30, 2019.

Kathy was born January 2, 1942 in Indianapolis, the daughter of John and Dorothy (Dot) Reptik.  

 She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.  She made many of these friends during her 13 ½ years working as a hostess at the Spencer McDonald’s.  She was also a member of the Homesteaders, and Braysville Homemakers.  She attended Gosport Christian Church for many years.  Over the last several years, she had begun attending the House of Prayer church in Ellettsville with her son, Curt Carey.

Kathy is survived by her children, Curt Carey of Spencer, IN; Chris (Ann) Carey of Spencer, IN; Katie (Gary) Barbee of Louisville, IL; and Amber (Levi) Honeycutt of Ellettsville, IN, along with ten grandchildren:  Jonathan, Abby (Andrew Byrum), Ally, Addy, Drew, Sarah, Ashley, Payton, Taylor and Zoey; and four great-grandchildren:  Alayna, Lucille, Liam, and Lyle.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Anita Storms; and her daughter-in-law, Jennifer Carey.

The words sweet, kind, and friendly, as well as the phrase “didn’t know a stranger” are readily used to describe Kathy.  She had a servant’s heart and love for others that fueled her desire to help anyone she could, especially her children and grandchildren.  She enjoyed flowers, sunsets, Purdue University, Mickey Mouse and Elvis, but most of all, spending time with her family.

A visitation service will be held at the House of Prayer in Ellettsville Saturday, January 4th at 10:30 a.m. and a Celebration of Life at 11:30 a.m.  Memorial donations may be made to the church or charity of your choice.
