CAREY, Bernice Alice (Spooner)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bernie Carey on February 1, 2020 at the age of 91. Predeceased by beloved husband H.A. (Bert), parents Wilbert and Annie, siblings Marion, Joan, Dorothy, and Richard, and grandson Jeffery Walton. Survived by sister-in-law Edith Fischer. Mourning her loss are her children Bill (Marg Bordignon), Michael (Philip Mendelsohn), Pam (Mark Walton), Jim (Marlene), Paul, Nancy (Wayne Dickinson), Linda (Mike Baker), Jennifer (Michel Gratton); grandchildren Duane (Jennifer), Michael, Wendy (Simon), Michael (Jennifer), Nicole (Miguel), Katie (Daniel), Greg, Shawn (Sarah), Kaitlyn (Zack), and Darcy; and great grandchildren Sidney, Briella, Jack, Crosby, Valerie, Zeniyah, Zekhai, MaryMay, Olivia, Claire, Josie, and James. Loved by numerous nieces and nephews.

The essence of Bernie was a steel trap memory, a quick quip, and a warm heart.

She was a long-time member and volunteer of the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre, Royal Canadian Legion Br. 234, and St. Joseph’s Parish CWL. From the 1950’s, Bernie delighted in sharing fellowship with a group of women, of which she was the last surviving member.

Thank you to all who helped our Mom through her final days.

Friends will be received at Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Dublin Chapel, 252 Dublin St N, Guelph, on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, from 1-4, and 6:30-9 p.m. A Funeral Mass for Bernice will take place at St. Joseph’s Church, 409 Paisley Rd, Guelph, on Thursday, February 6, 2020, at 10 a.m. Interment at Marymount Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cathedral High School Jeff Walton Bursary, Hospice Wellington, or St. Joseph’s Health Centre. Donation cards are available at the funeral home (519-822-4731), or online at

My sincere sympathy and prayers on the loss of a beautiful woman. I have fond memories of Bernie at Marrin-Carey gatherings over the past 60 years. Her bright spirit was always uplifting and her interest in everyone was most sincere. It was a delight to be with her. She has been gifted with a very long life and I hope her final journey was not too difficult. I cannot be with you for her funeral but I will certainly remember her - and all her family - at Mass on Thursday.
Sincerely, Mary Rose Marrin CSJ

Memory like a steam trap for sure. Bryan was fortunate to have coffee with her and Pam at the mall and remark on well she looked. As for me I will always treasure her call at Christmas after receiving our Christmas card. She will be missed greatly and we so sorry we can't be there to celebrate her. Our thoughts and love to all the family. Bryan and Susan

So sorry to all the family on the news of Mrs. Carey's passing. I am one of many children who knew her back in the days....
Went to school with her children....and attended the same church. This is the way community is back in the days....
I last saw her at a hair salon a couple of years ago. It was so nice to see her.
Be comforted and be consoled. I understand the pain of loss as do many others.
You know what to do.....
God bless everyone.
