Cary Lynn Gray was a unique, feisty, and very loveable lady. Born Dec. 14, 1930, she left us on Feb. 15, 2014, in the afterglow of a wonderful, active, and special Valentine's Day.
Cary loved people and made friends everywhere she went. She laughed easily and always had a story, adventure, or joke to share. From real estate and property management to finding homes for stray cats and dogs, Cary gave it her all! She was a proud member of First United Methodist Church, Tuscumbia, and an active and passionate supporter of Pets Are Worth Saving (PAWS).
Cary lost her mother, Mamie Fisher (Propst) Gray, and her father, Benjamin Furman Gray, when she was very young. She and her siblings, Ben and Mary Ben, were reared in Warrior, Ala. by her aunt and uncle, Winona and James H. Rimel, and her extended Propst/Slaughter family in Nauvoo, Ala.
Cary moved to Chicago where she became personal secretary to A.L. Jackson and his large construction company. She later entered real estate and property management in Chicago and in the St Joseph, Mich. area before returning to Tuscumbia, Ala. to care for her cousin, Noreen Hyde.
Cary was much loved. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her many friends and family near and far and her special cousin, Mauri, and family from Canada.
Special thanks to Janice McGregor, Dr. Larry Carmichael, and to the wonderful staffs at Glenwood and Park Place for their loving care.
A private service will be held at Elmwood Cemetery, Birmingham.
