Obituary of Brigid « Bridgie » Carey
CAREY, Brigid “Bridgie” (Dempsey) – Age78, peacefully passed away on April 20, 2021 in the South Shore Regional Hospital after a brief illness. Born on May 3, 1942, in Ballivor, County Meath, Ireland, she was a daughter of the late Francis and Kathleen (Monaghan) Dempsey.
Brigid was the loving wife of Robert “Bob” Carey; proud mother of Michael (Brenda), Annette (David Kaulback) and Beth Carey; Grammie to Cale and Jessica Potter. She is survived by brothers, Gerry (Bernie) and Johnny (Maureen); sister, Doreen Lynch; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, Brigid was predeceased by brothers, Michael “Mickey”, Joseph, Frank; sisters, Marie Banks, Bernadette Killingworth, Elizabeth “Betty” Shimamoto, and Kate Bracken. She will be remembered by her many friends for a glass of wine and great times.
Brigid came to Canada on May 1, 1960 for a summer vacation with her sister Marie, and started working at the Royal Bank. A co-worker lived in the same boarding house as Bob, and Canada became home shortly thereafter.
If you knew Brigid, you also knew how kind, loyal, considerate, caring, compassionate and patient (most times) she was. You would also have had the privilege of hearing her sing on your special occasion. Brigid will also be remembered as a very giving person. She cared for several friends during illnesses, providing love and support during difficult times.
Brigid was a faithful member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Parish in Bridgewater, and a member of K-ettes. A celebration of her life will be planned later in the summer. Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Sweeny’s Funeral Home, 35 York Street, Bridgewater. Donations in her memory may be made to Souls Harbour Rescue Mission.
