Carey Beth Krywy

May 30, 1978 - May 30, 2022
Carey Beth Krywy

Carey Beth Krywy of Wilmington, NC, passed away on Monday, May 30, 2022, at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Monday was also her birthday; she was 44 years old. Carey Beth was the beloved daughter of Nan and the late Roger Davis of Cherryville, NC. She was born in Gastonia, NC on May 30, 1978.

Carey Beth was vivacious and charismatic. She had an endless capacity for kindness and her smile was warm and open. Carey Beth never met a stranger. She channeled her talents and joy for life into a successful sales career, where during one sales visit with a trainee in tow, she ‘closed’ both the sale and her future husband, John, on a first date.

Carey Beth attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She was bright and funny, a talented tennis player, and she had the heart and courage of a fighter. Carey Beth always pulled for the underdog and was quick to confront any injustice or to stand up for anyone who needed her. She poured every ounce of her warmth and energy into building a beautiful home with John and their three beloved dogs, Betsy, Juno and the late Lexi.

Carey Beth is survived by her adoring husband, John Krywy of Wilmington, NC; their two fur children, Betsy and Juno; her mother, Nan Davis of Cherryville, NC; her sister, Katie Collins and Katie’s husband Brad of Charlotte, NC; and her brother, Andy Davis of Aiken, SC.

The family will hold a Celebration of Life Service for Carey Beth at Windermere Presbyterian Church located at 104 Windermere Road in Wilmington on Sunday, June 5, at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, her family requests donations be made in Carey Beth’s name to Vintage Values, an organization in Wilmington that works to end domestic violence and provides emergency support services for survivors.
