Mae Arlene Amelia Carey, nee Meyer, 92, Lanham, Md., passed away Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, at Washington Hospital Center, Washington, D.C.

Mae was born May 25, 1926, in Warrenton, the eldest daughter of Hugo Charles and Adeline Fredericka Meyer, nee Groeper. Mae attended public schools and graduated in May 1944 from Warrenton High School. She married Charlie Carey Nov. 1, 1947, at First Methodist Church in Hyattsville, Md.

Mae and Charlie took square dance lessons in the 1960s and danced with many clubs for almost 30 years. They enjoyed traveling overseas with both their square dance and church families along with yearly trips across the country for USS Bisbee Coast Guard reunions. They returned to Warrenton every year to spend time with Mae's family. Mae and Charlie also enjoyed trips to Florida in the winter and to Ocean Pines, Md., in the summer. Mae's favorite pastimes were playing cards with her family and many fun games at family reunions.

Mae was preceded in death by her loving husband, Charles C. Carey. They celebrated almost 60 years of marriage before his passing March 31, 2007.

She is survived by her children, Charles Michael Carey (Kathy), James Bradford Carey (Patsy), Stephen Douglas Carey (Faith), Deborah Lynn D'Amico (Jim) and Allan Meyer Carey, along with many loving grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
