Born on June 19th, 1955, in St. Louis, M.O. to William Morgan and Dorothy (Taylor) Morgan, they resided in St. Louis, M.O. where she was the oldest of 7 children. She was a 1972 graduate of Ritenour High School in St. Louis, M.O. Dorothy started her large loving family at an early age. She had her son Bryce while in high school and was pregnant with her daughter Angela during graduation time. Despite being a student and a mother, she was still able to take extra courses and graduate a year ahead of schedule. In 1973, she married the love of her life, Edward Carey, and in 1975 they headed north to New Hampshire and settled in Franklin, N.H. She eventually had 4 more children and was a stay-at-home Mom for many years raising her 6 children. She held jobs at Laconia Christian School as an administrative assistant, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Beede Electric, and she also worked retail positions at the Tilton Tanger Outlet Mall.
Outside of work and being a mom, Dorothy loved ten pin bowling. While living in Missouri, she won many tournaments and was proud to speak of her trophies and her own personalized bowling balls. She was also an avid reader and loved a good thriller or mystery book. She was also a fan of the television gameshows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, often solving the puzzles and “buzzing in,” way before the actual contestants. Her family is convinced that she is the greatest Jeopardy champion to have never graced the stage with Alex Trebek.
Her greatest accomplishment in life and what she was most proud of was her family. Her husband, 6 children, and her 8 grandchildren were her pride and joy. Attending sporting events alongside her husband to support her children or grandchildren is something that she cherished. Dorothy and Edward’s fairy tale love story comes to an end with her rejoining him after spending only 10 days apart from one another. May they both rest in peace together.
Her family will receive relatives and friends for calling hours on Saturday, March 27th, from 2-5 p.m. at the Thibault Neun Funeral Home located at 143 Franklin Street, in Franklin, N.H. ***Social distancing and masks are required***
