Emma Carey Obituary, Death – On November 15, 2022, Emma Carey of New Haven died unexpectedly at home. She was born on September 20, 1988. Emma was a dedicated and passionate music teacher at L. W. Beecher and John C. Daniels Schools in New Haven. She dedicated her life to instilling her passion, love, and knowledge of music in her community. Emma valued education for herself and others, and as part of her personal quest for knowledge, she recently earned a master’s degree in special education from Quinnipiac University. She was also an active volunteer in her own schools, helping with the play as well as her daughters’ school.

Emma loved music and enjoyed listening to it, singing it, playing it, watching a Broadway show, and improvising a good bop with her friends. She was a voracious reader who loved nothing more than curling up with a good book. Anyone who challenged her to a trivia or Escape Room game night, good luck. Emma loved her family, especially her parents, Michael Carey and Elizabeth Squillace. Emma adored motherhood and was a loving mother to Evelyn and Charlotte Kunze. Mara Schick and Jacob Carey couldn’t have asked for a more devoted sister-in-law and birthday twin for Daniel Schick. Despite their brief earthly relationship, her feelings for her nephew William Schick, the cutest dopamine hit in her life, were clear to all. Her large family, which includes her beloved grandmother Ethel Carey, will carry on her memory.
