Lorraine M Carey

October 28, 1970 — May 13, 2023

Pennsburg

We are heartbroken to announce that our beloved Lorraine Carey of Pennsburg, PA, passed on Saturday, May 13, 2023, surrounded by her family and loved ones. She was 52 years young; leaving us much too soon after a courageous battle with cancer.

Lorraine was born on October 28, 1970, in Harrisburg PA and grew up with her family in Willow Grove. The oldest of three siblings, she was naturally independent and headstrong. A child of the MTV generation, Lorraine absolutely loved popular music - her spirit, equally as rebellious and fiery - but to strangers, she was quiet, kind and even modest.

Lorraine had an artistic side that few people knew; photography was her chosen muse. She almost always had a camera in hand and it wasn’t out of the ordinary for her to sneak away from gatherings to zoom in on a delicate flower, or steal a candid family moment, usually followed by a gentle smile. Her words revealed the insight and poetry that she found in the beauty of nature: “May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.”

An inherent love for family made Lorraine a natural at taking care of others; it’s no surprise that her proudest achievement was being a mother. Amber was Lorraine’s universe, and she reveled in watching her grow up to become the young woman she is today.

As quiet as she could be, Lorraine’s infamous, spontaneous laughing spells gave glimpses of deeper thoughts and a mischief that she mostly kept to herself. Those moments came to the surface only when she was most content and happy - and a sign that she loved you enough to show it. Those of us lucky enough to be a part of her world, will always remember her this way.

Lorraine is survived by her daughter, Amber; Amber’s father, Guy Carey; her mother, Janice Paget and husband Frank; her father, Frank Supsic and wife Anne; her brothers, Marc and Keath Supsic; and their extended families. There are no words that can adequately express what a void her sudden absence leaves in all of our hearts.

A memorial will be held on June 8, 2023, at Naugle Funeral Home, 135 W. Pumping Station Rd, Quakertown, PA 18951. Visitation hours are from 11AM - 1PM, to be immediately followed by a short service. Burial services will be held at a later time.

In honor of Lorraine’s brave battle, and those who are still fighting cancer, we invite you to wear something pink to the memorial as a token of unity.

In lieu of gifts or flowers, the family suggests a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of Lorraine’s favorite organizations. St Jude’s mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Donations can be made online to https://www.stjude.org/
