Ann-Carole was born in Brooklyn, New York, where she lived most of her young life. She graduated with a Bachelor’s in English from St. John’s University, where she met her husband, Edward Harvey.
Together they raised four children. They traveled extensively for Ed’s job, so each child was born in a unique location: Cynthia Ann - Brooklyn, New York; Daniel Edward - Chicago, Illinois; Erin Elizabeth - Brussels, Belgium; Sean James – Parsippany, New Jersey.
Ann-Carole started her career out of college as a teacher at John Jay High School in Brooklyn. After getting married and starting a family, she took a long sabbatical to focus on raising her children. Decades later she returned to teaching at St. Christopher’s School in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Ann-Carole is best remembered for her love of travel, quilting, reading, puzzles, cooking, Labrador Retrievers, visiting museums, volunteering, laughing, and hosting family and friends.
She is pre-deceased by her husband, Edward Harvey (1992), her parents, Ann and Edward Crean, and her brothers, Edward and Philip Crean. She leaves behind four children – Cynthia, and her husband, Michael Flammer, Daniel, Erin, and Sean, her four grandchildren; Jacqueline, Shannon, Mackenzie, and Sophie, and her sister, Emily Chandarjit. She also leaves behind her three sisters in law, Mercedes Crean, Diana Harvey, Anne Bradner, and their children.
