Picture Framing Legacy


Beatrice W. Carey   1920 – 2021

Frame shop co-founder Beatrice Wells Carey of Millsboro passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on Wednesday evening, June 2nd. She recently celebrated her 101st birthday. She and her husband, Ned, established Carey’s Paint & Hardware in 1953. In 1965, they began offering custom picture framing, and Carey’s Paint and Frame Shoppe was born. Picture framing became a passion for Bea, an amateur artist, and she happily continued her work until the age of 96 when she finally had to retire. Services were held Saturday, June 12th at Watson’s Funeral Home, in Millsboro.

Thanks for the many expressions of love and sympathy.
