ROCKPORT — Alyssa Dawn Carey, age 30, passed away on Sept. 29, 2022. She was born at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport to Steve and Carol Carey.

Alyssa spent her entire childhood growing up in Warren with her sisters Tiffany, Kilei, and Cassie.

She attended Warren Community School, D.R. Gaul, and graduated from Medomak Valley High School. She played many sports over the years, including softball, soccer, basketball and cheer.

Alyssa had an adventurous spirit and was always up for something fun. She loved fishing, four wheeling, skydiving, hiking, dancing, listening to loud music, singing in her car, shopping, and playing video games. Alyssa was also a poet and had written many poems for friends and family over her lifetime.

Her favorite activity was any time spent with family and friends, especially her children.

Alyssa gave birth to her first daughter in 2017, and named her after her late sister, Kilei. She recently gave birth to twin daughters Isla and Harper, in the beginning of September. Alyssa loved her children more than anything. She described the day that her daughter Kilei was able to meet her baby sisters as the “best day of my life.” She was absolutely smitten with all of them, and her vision of the future was filled with hope, love, and family.

Alyssa quite literally had hundreds of friends. From the time she was able to speak (which was very early!) she made friends wherever she went. She never met a stranger, a trait she has passed on to her oldest daughter, Kilei.

Alyssa had a hilarious sense of humor. She was known for making silly faces, never taking herself too seriously, and was always up for creating mischief, with the goal of making people laugh.

She was also a great support to her recovery community over the last year. Alyssa had recently celebrated a full year of sobriety, an accomplishment that cannot be overshadowed by her death. In this year she healed many relationships, created deep friendships, lived fully, and loved greatly. She will be missed by all who knew her, and leaves behind a grieving community who is better for her having been a part of it.

Alyssa was predeceased by her big sister Kilei Jean, brother David Franklin, paternal grandmother Margaret “Peggy” Carey, maternal grandfather Franklin Nash, her best friend Amy Thompson, cousin Sheldon Curtis, and countless more friends lost too soon.

Alyssa is survived by her three daughters, Kilei MaKenna, Isla Rose and Harper Elizabeth; parents Stephen and Carol (Nash) Carey; maternal grandmother Loretta Nash; sisters Tiffany Gardner and her partner Michael Barrett, Cassie Carey Francis and her wife Amy Mills Francis; brother Benjamin Benner; nephews Atlas Knox, Wilder Nash, Troy and AJ; dear friend Sarah Sawyer; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A memorial service will be held at the Samoset Resort’s Knox Room, on Sunday Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. Please join us to celebrate Alyssa’s life, bring a dish of finger foods, and your favorite stories of Alyssa. Let us all share comfort with one another, as we grieve this immeasurable loss.
