Obituary of Sally C. Carey

Sally C. Carey, age 85, of Dallas, Lehman Township passed away peacefully while resting on January 9th, 2021. Born on April 11th, 1935 in Wilkes Barre, PA., Sally was the youngest and last surviving of twelve 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 2 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 September 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 step son in law Rick Williams. Sally is survived by sons, Joseph Munster, Michael (Alice) Munster, Paul Munster, Daniel Munster and finance 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.
