November Member of the Month


Cocoa Beach Woman's Club
Member of the Month

Jean Carey

Although she was born in the northeast, Jean lived most of her life in Virginia until moving to Florida 9 years ago.
Jean and her late husband, Charlie, had 3 children, 2 sons and one daughter. Jean has 6 grandchildren and 2 grand dogs! Daughter Cathy is an artist in California. She teaches color theory for the Art Institute of California in San Diego. Cathy also presents workshops in Santa Fe during the summer.
While living in Virginia, Jean worked as a White House volunteer in communications. She began in the Carter administration and worked during the Reagan years. Jean addressed cards going to elderly birthday recipients and after the Reagan assassination attempt, she pre-read mail before forwarding it.
Jean has belonged to the CBWC almost 4 years. In addition to all the hard work she does for us, she also belongs to the Brevard Art Museum, the Women's Center, Newcomers, the retired officer's wives club and MOAA (military officer's association of America).
A very busy lady!
