Obituary for Carol Ann Carey

Carol Ann Carey passed away suddenly on November 26th, 2018 after a short illness. Ms. Carey was born in Plainfield, NJ to Gilman & Margaret Carey.

Ms. Carey graduated from Bucknell University and remained a staunch and loyal supporter of the university throughout her life.

Carol Ann worked for more than 20 years as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor for the State of New Jersey, based mostly out of the office in Somerville until her official retirement.
After her retirement, Ms. Carey worked in every conceivable capacity at Friedlander Associates Inc., the insurance agency owned by her son. There she acted as the agency’s first receptionist, producer, sense of calm in a sea of chaos, and of course – the Bank Of Mom. In this capacity, she helped the agency flourish from a small start-up situated in the back of a clothing store to the national presence it now enjoys.

Ms. Carey is survived by her son, Jeffrey Friedlander and his wife Carol of Ringoes, NJ, her extended grandchildren, Brianna Drake (Kevin Kraft) of Manville, NJ and Tanner Drake (Janelle Vega) of Washington, NJ.

Carol Ann was an avid reader, and the only person most of us knew who could complete the NY Times Crossword Puzzle. She loved to garden, knit, and she made the area’s most requested Toll House Cookies.

By far and away, Ms. Carey’s legacy was love and support for her family. She was a Raving Fan, and totally biased supporter of all things family – everything else was just everything else to her. The lives that the Friedlander Family touches now and improves upon are only possible because of Carol Ann. Quiet, stoic and passionately loyal to those she loved, that is how Carol Ann Carey will be remembered.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to Press On Fund to support Pediatric Cancer Research @ https://pressonfund.org/donate
