Nurse Nancy's Legacy

Nancy Carey, RN, CCM, 61 of Carmel, Indiana passed away on Sunday, April 8, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.   Nancy was born on August 18, 1956 to Bob and Mary Stewart in Batesville, Indiana.  She graduated from Batesville High School in 1974 and then earned her BSN from the Indiana University School of Nursing.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that you help support the Nancy J. Carey nursing scholarship fund (Batesville High School) “Nurse Nancy’s Legacy”. 100% of donated funds will go towards an annual scholarship to a student from Batesville High School, to help them pursue a Nursing degree.

Kindness, Caring, Warm, Giving, and Selfless are all words that define Nancy’s life.   As a nurse she would stop at nothing to help aid and comfort her patients, often working late into the night to assure that their questions were answered and that they were comfortable.   Her strength and faith were evident in her four-year battle with Multiple Myeloma cancer.   During that time, she never asked “why me” and during some of her darkest times would go out of her way to thank the nurses and doctors at the Simon Cancer Center for helping her thru another difficult day.
