Margaret Ann Cary, 95, of Maine

Former Warren resident had deep roots in the community

Posted

Margaret Ann (Doherty) Cary, 95, passed away on January 11, 2021 in Rangeley, Maine, with family at her side.

Margaret (‘Marge) was the wife of Harry W. Cary, Jr. for 71 years and was the daughter of Edward Doherty and Margaret Doherty of Warren, RI. She was born on February 9, 1925 in Providence, residing in Warren until her marriage in February 1945. She was predeceased by her husband, Harry.

Margaret was very active in her early years in Warren and made many friends, some she still remained in contact with. She was the drum major in the Warren Indian Band while in High School. She met her husband Harry at Warren Town Beach, a story she told everyone. Her brother Jimmy Doherty and sisters Florence and Gloria were all Warren residents and her father Ed Doherty was a Warren police officer for many years. Two of her grandsons, Scott and Joel Cary, live in Warren.

She is survived by her children: Harry W. Cary, III of Riverside, RI and Rangeley, ME, Diane M. Machado of Riverside, RI; Paul E. Cary of Cranston, RI and Rangeley, ME and Jeannine M. Sahagen of Rangeley, ME.

She and her husband traveled extensively in North America in their motor home for many years. She had a tremendous memory and the Irish gift of gab. A great joy in Marge’s life was visiting with her children and especially her nine grandchildren, and her 15 great-grandchildren.

A private mass and burial to be held in Rangeley Maine.
