PEORIA, IL - LeAdelle M. Carey, 99, of Peoria passed away at 11:35 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11, 2011, at Heartland Healthcare Center in Peoria.

She was born on Dec. 21, 1911, in Peoria, Ill., to William N. and Elizabeth (Breymerier) Metzel. She married Orval J. Carey on April 23, 1935, in Davenport, Iowa. He preceded her in death on June 12, 1980, in Peoria.

Her parents and two brothers, Harold Metzel and Claude Metzel, also preceded her in death.

Surviving are one son, William J. (Kerinn) Carey of Dunlap; one daughter, Alice J. Wamsley of Peoria; eight grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

She was a Manual Training High School graduate, Class of 1931, and attended Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria.

LeAdelle always wanted to be a housewife. She always said, "I hate to cook, but I love keeping house." She loved her family, and was a special mother and grandmother. She loved gardening, sewing, knitting, quilting, crocheting and reading the Bible. We will truly miss her.

Burial will be in Pleasant Grove Cemetery near Eden.
