Kathryn S. Carey, L.P.N. age 69, of West Scranton and an Old Forge native, passed away Thursday at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton, after an illness.

She adored her family, especially her son, brothers and her little red head, her granddaughter, Nina, whom she was so proud of.
She will never be forgotten. Of Roman Catholic faith, she was a member of St. Ann’s Basilica Parish.
She is survived by her son, Scott Carey and fiance Amy Deice of Hughestown; her brothers, David Carey and wife Joanne of Old Forge and Elliott Carey, Sr. and fiance Joyce Brigido, all of Old Forge; her granddaughter, Nina; and nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by her infant sister, Lee Ann Carey.
