Ann E. Carey, the beloved daughter of the late Honorable Robert E. Carey and Mrs. Helen J. Carey, was born October 28, 1957 in Palo Alto, California, and lost her long battle with cancer on May 19, 2019 surrounded by her family and close friends.
Ann grew up in Atherton, where she attended Convent of the Sacred Heart High School. A top athlete, Ann competed as a member of the NCAA Varsity Diving Team at Stanford University, where she also earned a Bachelor Degree in English. She received a teaching credential from the University of California, Berkeley, and earned an MBA at Santa Clara University, graduating with Honors.
After teaching 3rd grade at Nativity Elementary School and working at the High Tech startup, AG Associates, Ann ultimately, became a Development and Investment Real Estate Manager.
Throughout her life, Ann enjoyed traveling, playing golf, swimming, and diving. She was a woman of deep faith who loved spending time with her family and friends. She had a kind and gentle soul, a thoughtful and loving heart, and was always giving to others.
Ann is survived by her mother, Helen; her brother, Robert Jr. (Kay); and her brother Thomas. She was a proud aunt of her two nieces, Michelle and Elizabeth.
