Flora Eleanor Carey

AGE: 90 • Newark

Flora Eleanor Carey, age 90, of Newark, DE, went home to be with the Lord while surrounded by her loving family on July 24, 2016. Flora was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother whose greatest joys were involved with raising her children. She was a wonderful cook and baker and delighted in providing delicious family meals where all were always welcomed. Flora was a devoted Southern Baptist and enjoyed reading her Bible. She enjoyed flower and vegetable gardening and canning. In their younger years, Flora and her husband enjoyed long motorcycle rides on their Harley Davidson.

Flora is survived by her son, Raymond "Actor" Carey Jr.; her daughters: Victoria Rae Cummings, and Cynthia Marie "Reds" Carey; her brother, Burton DeBusk; her 4 grandchildren: Dorraine Barnes, Divinity Lamborn, Melissa Pavlikowski, and Aaron Carey; and her 8 great grandchildren: Taylor Rae, Zachary, Caitlyn, Isabella, Nadya, Lilly, Luna, and Kiera.
