Lady Rachel R. Carey


Lady Rachel Ricks Carey is a native of Washington, District of Columbia.   It is in Washington, DC where she obtained her elementary and secondary education. In her early years, and under the watchful eye of her father, she learned how to do almost everything.


Upon completing high school, Mrs. Carey worked for the Hot Shoppe’s Corporation, until she met and married her soul mate and the love of her life, Abner Carey, Jr.   She is blessed with being the mother of three daughters, proud grandmother and great-grandmother.  


Mrs. Carey received the name “Mother Carey” from WYCB radio station due to her willingness to offer prayer and word of encouragement whenever she found anyone who was down in Spirit.


Mrs. Carey serves faithfully and diligently beside her husband as First Lady of the New Grove Missionary Baptist Church.   You will often hear her quote I Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore my Beloved Brethren, be ye Steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
