Elizabeth (Carey) Ewing
Of Lake Placid, FL, died peacefully on September 8th, after a brief battle with Leukemia. She is survived by the love of her life, Michael Ewing, to whom she was married for 40 years, and her beloved son, Braden Ewing, of Orlando, FL. Born to William and Catherine (Moore) Carey, Elizabeth was raised in Saratoga Springs, NY. After meeting in Boston, the Ewings lived in New York, NY, Dallas, TX, and Greenwich, CT, before moving closer to their son in Florida. Besides her husband and son, she is survived by her sister and best friend, Linda Carey Keith of Dedham, MA, and her brother, William Carey and his wife, Barbara (Ashton) of Ipswich, MA, as well as her adoring nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by her large extended family including her treasured Moore and Carey cousins and a younger generation of great nieces and nephews who she showered with love. Elizabeth attended St. Peter's Academy and studied at Trinity College in VT. She had a successful advertising sales career at Boston radio station, WHDH, and continued in New York at Katz Communications and Nickelodeon Television. She later turned her energies to raise her son, and lent her many talents to Braden's schools and local non-profits where she made an infinite number of friends. She volunteered at both Lamplighter School in Dallas and Brunswick School in Greenwich, where she also had a long commitment to The Breast Cancer Alliance. Elizabeth was a faithful Catholic, a voracious reader, gourmet cook, frequent hostess to friends, and the mastermind behind every family Thanksgiving and Christmas celebration. She traveled extensively and loved long road trips and vacations by the sea, especially August on Cape Cod. But more than anything, her greatest joy was family. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date in Saratoga Springs, NY. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made in memory of Elizabeth Ewing to the Breast Cancer Alliance, 48 Maple Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830.

We didn't know Liz very long but she's the sweetest person you would want to meet. We enjoyed her company at all the local charity events for the radio station. Found out Sees candy was her favorite. Miss her. God bless Michael and the family during this difficult time and being a metastatic breast cancer survivor of 11 years, I can appreciate her love for the breast cancer alliance. May you rest in peace Liz.

The short time I knew her, she was a joy, and really got me laughing while I was getting a pedicure, as she wanted me to help get Michael in for one. Bless her, I'll keep trying

What do I remember most about my high school friend? Her wide smile that lit up her face and included everyone around her. And her enthusiasm that made everything and everybody happier to be include.
Rest easy, my friend, and continue to shine. You will be missed on this side of eternity, but heaven is surely rejoicing in your glow.

I have pictures of Betty, Linda and I as toddlers in their back yard kiddie pool. Our mothers were, of course , watching over us as they took a break from housework. So many happy memories flood my mind of the Carey family. Our friendship was strong all thru grade school and high school, losing touch as we went onto adulthood.
Upon the death of my mother,I received the loveliest hand written note of condolence from her which I still treasure. I am so sorry to hear of her death. My deepest sympathy to all who loved her. Jill

Liz was an incredibly loving person. Since both of our sisters are far away from us, we had decided that we were going to be "local" sisters and I was very proud to call her that! She will always be on my mind and may God have her right next to him! You will be greatly missed!

A wonderful person we knew here in Sebring for far too short a time. Prayers for peace to Michael, Braden and family.
