Katherine Anne Carey

Carey: Katherine Anne
Katherine attended Holyrood Country School, Islay School and graduated from Vermilion High School. She held a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta.
Her teaching career began during her university days at Myrtle Hill Country School near Kitscoty, Alberta.  She took her first full time teaching position with the Edmonton Separate School Board teaching at St. Margaret’s for one year and then moved to St. Kevin’s School. Katherine taught large classes of more than one grade at both schools. When the position of Vice-Principal at St. Kevin’s opened, she applied and was given the position.  Katherine also taught grade nine while doing the administrative position.  She resigned in 1965 and took a year off.
During her year off she did some teaching at J.R. Robson High School in Vermilion and at Kitscoty High School.  In the fall of 1966 she started teaching at the Lloydminster Comprehensive High School.  During the time she was there she taught grade twelve English.  She retired in 1986.  Katherine could have retired a year sooner however she stayed on one more year as Shawna was in grade 12. Katherine was honoured to give a family member a grade 12 diploma.
Katherine looked after her Mom until her Mom was hospitalized.  Later on in life, Norman had an accident with a post pounder and he lost one eye.  Katherine became the chauffeur as well as the caregiver. 
Katherine had her first hospital admission at age 83! The doctors and nurses were astonished!! At 85, this hospital admission was just a few days over 3 months.  Katherine was notified on Thursday, September 7 that she had to go to a nursing home.  We all know that was not in her plans.
Katherine Ann Carey passed away on Septmeber 10, 2017 in Vermilion, Alberta at the age of 85 years.  She will be lovingly remembered by her first 8 cousins as well as extended family and friends.  She was predeceased by her parents Jack and Margaret, her siblings Norman and Marie, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
