Obituary of Ann Marie Carey
September 20, 1963 – June 26, 2022
Ann Marie Carey. Age 58 of Southgate.
Ann Marie (Bellis) Carey, known affectionately to her friends and family as Annie, departed from her loving family and left this world on June 26, 2022.
Above all else, Ann cherished being a mother to her two children, Katie and Jacob, and her son-in-law Corey. Ann frequently talked about her children and how fiercely she loved them. She considered many of her children’s friends to be her “bonus” kids and loved them all deeply. Ann had a huge heart and shared that love with everyone around her. Ann was also very close to her many nieces, nephews and siblings on both her and her late husband's sides of the family.
Annie was born in Preston, Lancashire, United Kingdom on September 20, 1963 and lived there until 1968 when her parents and siblings moved to the United States. She continued her education here and graduated from John Glenn High School in Westland in 1981. On top of being a homemaker, Annie had the knack for helping people out. She worked for years at a local transportation company as a dispatcher and really took any opportunity she could to help others.
Annie had a love for all things sports and animals. Everyone knew that during football season she would be watching her New England Patriots, and eventually Tampa Bay as she was the biggest Tom Brady fan. She religiously followed the Detroit Red Wings and was known to become very animated during any sporting event. The University of Michigan football season was her favorite time of year. Annie also loved all fur babies. She was known to give table scraps to all of her cats and quickly became any animal's favorite human.
Annie was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond; her sisters, Joanne and Christine; her paternal grandparents, Frank and Mary; and her maternal grandparents, Tom and Elsie. She is survived by her children, Katie and Corey Fitzgerald and Jacob Carey; her parents, Frank and Barbara Bellis; her siblings Andy (Carolyn) Bellis and Adele (Gerry) Wachner; and many beloved nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Services will take place at Molnar Funeral Homes - Nixon Chapel in Wyandotte on Thursday, June 30th. Visitation will be from 1-6 PM with a Catholic service at 6 PM. Following the service family and friends are welcome to gather at the Wyandotte Knights of Columbus for dinner and refreshments.
