Maren E. Carey was born on Aug. 4, 1945, in Salt Lake City, Utah, and passed away on Sept. 5, 2017, at Providence Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska, with friends by her side.
She is preceded in death by her dear friend, Karen Kirby; brother, Robert Carey; sister, Caroline Christian; and mother, Esther Carey.
She is survived by her triplet brother, David A. Carey Sr. (Doris); triplet sister, Sandra Carey; sister-in-law, Kris Christian; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
She loved gardening and was a Master Gardener, actively involved with Alaska Botanical Gardens in Anchorage.
Maren had a passion for art, music and loved walking in Alaska's great outdoors. She treasured spending time with family and close friends, who were her family.
A celebration of life for Maren will be held on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, at 1 p.m., at Alaska Botanical Garden, 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road in Anchorage - Alaska Botanical shares the Benny Benson School parking lot.
We will have poster boards up, please feel free to share pictures and, of course, your stories to tell. We hope all her family and friends can join us, if not in person, in spirit.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Maren Carey can be made to the soup kitchen known as Beans Cafe in Anchorage, at beanscafe.org; or Alaska Botanical Gardens, 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road, Anchorage, AK 99507: both charities dear to her heart.
Maren will continue to be loved and missed by all those in her circle of family and friends whose lives she's touched in so many, many ways over the past several decades.
