Sally C. Carey Obituary

Sally C. Carey, 85, of Dallas, Lehman Twp., passed away peacefully while resting on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021.

Born April 11, 1935, in Wilkes-Barre, Sally was the youngest and last surviving of 12 children born to the late Anthony and Mary Corcoran Carlin.

Sally was employed by the Visiting Nurse Association for more than 20 years until her retirement in 1997.

Mom met William E. Carey in late July of 1980, and after a lengthy courtship of just over two months they were married in early October of 1980. Bill originally fibbed about his true age and we can only guess she may have originally fibbed about the number of children and grandchildren she had, which he fully embraced. We are all eternally thankful for their happy and inseparable 18 years together, until Bill's passing on Sept. 2, 1998.

In addition to her parents, and husband, Bill, Sally was preceded in death by brothers, Paul, Anthony, Thomas and Michael Carlin; sisters, Ann Carlin, Loretta Cowell, Mary Claire Vaughn, Ruth Lebert, Eleanor Brisk, Margaret Hollander and Jean Habib; sons, George Munster and Andrew Munster; grandson, Shawn Munster; and stepson-in-law, Rick Williams.

Sally is survived by sons, Joseph Munster, Michael (Alice) Munster, Paul Munster, Daniel Munster and fiancée, Michelle Macking; daughter, Susan (Leonard) Krispin; daughter-in-law, Diane Munster; stepdaughters, Sharon Williams; and Patricia (Ed) Bolton; grandchildren, Adrienne Pollock; Sandi (Juan) Custodio; Alyssa (Joe) Piazza; Stephen (Marissa) Munster; and Charles Krasniak; numerous great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter; extended family of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; cousins, nieces and nephews. In addition, Sally is survived by her "Breakfast Club" friends, Kim, Lisa, Becky, Karen, Lorraine and Maggie, as well as her longtime friends of many, many years, Carol Kelsch and Josephine Chervenak.

Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday from Curtis L. Swanson Funeral Home Inc., state Routes 29 and 118, Pikes Creek, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 2011 state Route 29, Hunlock Creek, with the Rev. Shawn Simchock officiating. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks and social distancing will be required.

Visitation will be from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home.

Interment will be in St. Mary's Cemetery, Hanover Twp.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to any charitable cause or persons that the donor so desires. In other words, pay it forward. Mom always said, "We take care of one another and remember there is always someone out there that is worse off and needs it more than you do."
