  • Pat we were so sad to hear about Fairy. My heart breaks for you and your family. Please accept our deepest condolences.
    I have such good memories of her. She helped me get through the time when Larry had bypass surgery, she called me every morning and prayed with me then and I would call her every night on my way home from Mansfield. She was an angel, always testifying for the Lord. I was looking at the pictures of her tea party and remembering how very beautiful she was inside and out. She was truly loved and a child of God’s.
    We loved her deeply and thank God for the opportunity of knowing her.
    You are in our prayers and thoughts.

  • Fairy was a very sweet person and loved visiting Pat and her,especially when she made the best rhubarb – strawberry pie that I will never forget. Such a special lady that will always will be remembered !!!

  • Oh this precious Saint! Her smile and joy was a powerful reality for me as I grew up in Galion, her neighbor and one of the gang of kids that went in and out of the Casey home continually! My best memories of growing up! Every one she met knew she loved and trusted in Jesus! What a blessed foundation as I went on in life! I hit a few bumps in the road on the way… but Fairy was always there, her love and wise counsel has been a real milestone many times for me. She is truly loved and her memory will always bring much joy to my heart. Her beautiful smile and loving heart will always be there for us all as we stay near to the Lord Jesus! Hallelujah!!! 💕💕💕💕

  • We were saddened to see that Fairy’s life on this earth has ended, but her new life in heaven and the impact she leaves behind will never end. She was a very, very special (and classy!) lady and we were so privileged to have known her. She was an incredible example of Christ’s love to all.
