Lorraine D. Carey, a beloved presence in the lives of her family and friends, passed away peacefully on July 12, 2023 at the age of 89. She was born on December 2, 1933, in Manchester to Leopold and Beatrice Chaput.
Throughout her career, Lorraine found fulfillment in serving others. With grace and kindness, she worked in the cafeteria at Bartlett School and later at Hillsborough County Nursing Home.
Lorraine possessed an insatiable hunger for exploration and shared countless adventures with her loved ones. Her wanderlust led her across 49 states within the United States. Additionally, she embarked on remarkable explorations of Europe visiting her son Mike and other family members — experiences that created unforgettable memories. She held a special place in her heart and adored spending time with her family. The time spent together was filled with joyous moments that will forever be treasured.
In addition to traveling, Lorraine had a passion for playing Bingo. For many years, she eagerly participated in this beloved pastime two days a week and cultivated lifelong friendships. It was considered a Right of Passage for her children to spend their 18th birthdays playing Bingo with her.
Lorraine is survived by her son, Michael Carey of Boston, MA, her favorite daughter, Kathleen Kozlosky of Hillsborough and late husband Allen Kozlosky, her other favorite daughter, Charlene Carey of Manchester, and her other favorite daughter, Lisa Woo and her husband Kenneth of Bedford; her sister Claudette Chauvette of Florida; 14 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, 1 great great granddaughter, and countless special Bingo friends. She is predeceased by her husband Robert Carey, son Thomas Carey, daughter Darlene Bernier, and granddaughter Leah Hebert.
A graveside service will be held at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Manchester on July 24th at 12pm. Family and friends are kindly invited to attend.
Lorraine’s family would like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at the Bedford Nursing Home and Compassus Hospice for their compassionate care and the love given to their mother. You are all her favorites too!
