OCEAN CITY — Esther Ellen Carney, age 95, passed away on Sept. 1, 2014 at Catered Living in Berlin.

Born in Ocean View, Del., she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Jennie Derrickson Pusey.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 54 years, Frank E. Carney in 1994. She is survived by her children, Susan C. Vickers of Ocean City, Patricia Ellen Carney of Cambridge, England, John Carney and his wife Vivian of Jupiter Fla. and Frank Carney, Jr. of Glendora, N.J. She was an adored “Nan” to four grandchildren, Dr. Susan “Suellen” Vickers, Jennifer Vickers Quade, Sheila Ceccarelli and Luca Ceccarelli and nine beautiful great-grandchildren. Also surviving are several nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.

Preceding her in death were sisters, Virginia Derrickson, Hannah Pusey, RN, LaRue Qureshi, brothers, Marshall and Edmund Pusey.

Esther was a homemaker and well-known talented artist, admired far and wide, for her artwork which she continued to do late into her nineties. She was a member of St. Paul’s by the Sea Episcopal Church, the Alter Guild, the Women’s Club of Ocean City, Ocean City Art league, the OC Promenaders Square Dancers, Order of Eastern Star, and the Red Hat Society. One of Esther’s most gratifying accomplishments was working for Elsie Kline in starting the O.C. Chamber of Commerce.

Esther took great pride in being the first to sell “The Ocean City Guide Book.” She also loved to play bridge and write letters to her friends and family. Her social calendar was always full. She will be greatly missed by her friends, family and community.
