Kimcina Kathalene Carey, affectionately known as Kim, Auntie Twin, and Kamosaki, peacefully transitioned from this life on Aug. 14 at her twin brother’s home in West Virginia.

Kim was born on Feb. 12, 1972 from the loving union between Kathalene Carter-Carey and Charles J. Carey. She was the daughter in the middle of two brothers; 3 years younger than her older brother and 5 minutes older than her twin.

Kim received her early education in Baltimore City Public Schools, attending Lockerman Bundy, Calverton and Baltimore Polytechnic Institute of Technology. In 1966, she graduated from West Virginia University with a BS degree in medical technology.

Kim was a beautiful woman who enjoyed serving others. As a young adult, she served on the usher ministry at Unity United Methodist Church. Throughout her professional career, she held various positions that allowed her customer service and people skills to shine.

A loving mother, aunt, sister, niece, and friend, Kim cherished her family and honored relationships. You would often find her enjoying Uncle George’s fried chicken, Uncle Lonnie’s string beans, her mom’s pound cake, or Mrs. Barnes’ sour cream pound cake.

Kim was a devoted, loving and caring mother to her three beautiful children, Serena, BJ and Mahogany. Every place that Kim went, her children were at her side. She always put their well being and happiness first. Whether it was an afternoon at the zoo or a trip to Disney World, they enjoyed precious family time together. She embodied the spirit of motherhood and was a trooper until the end.

Kim leaves a legacy of love to celebrate her life; her parents Kathalene Carter-Carey and Charles J. Carey; three beautiful children: Serena, Barry Jr. and Mahogany; two brothers: Garreth (Veronica) and Keyon (Nicole); one aunt, Gladys; four uncles: Leon, George, Michael and Lonnie; three nephews: Garreth, Dominic and Nathan; three nieces: Tylia, Garriel and Kiara; the father of her three children, Barry Sr.; and a host of other relatives and friends.
