Nina Irene Caskey

August 27, 1922 ‒ August 07, 2016

New Riegel, Ohio
Formerly of Marion,

Nina Irene Caskey, age 93, of New Riegel formerly of Marion passed away at her home on Thursday August 7, 2016.

She was born Sunday August 27, 1922 to the late Bert and Lelah (Rhoades) Hutchisson in Delaware County and was one of twelve children.

Nina fell in love with a handsome young man named Glenn Caskey.  On July 12, 1939, at the age of 17, she took his last name in marriage.  Together they shared nearly 54 years of marriage and raised 4 wonderful children.  Glenn went on to prepare their heavenly home June 5, 1993.

Nina was a career homemaker, which allowed her to stay at home and raise their 4 children.  Although it came with its challenges, Nina would not have had it any other way.  Nina had a love for cats.  She would make sure that any cat would have food and water as well as finding a loving home.  Whenever she had some down time Nina would enjoy heading to the bowling alley.

Nina will be dearly missed by her children Sharon (Roger) Denzer, Jeff Caskey, Gary (Kathy) Caskey, and Steve Caskey; grandchildren Tim Denzer, Alex Caskey, Jennifer (Chuck) Daniel, Amanda Caskey, Danny Galyk, Mark Galyk, Tim Galyk, Tammy Galyk, Pam Stone, and many great-grandchildren.

Nina was met at Heaven’s gates by her parents, loving husband, grandson Jackson Caskey, granddaughter Alicia Caskey, and 11 brothers and sisters.

The family will greet friends on Thursday August 11, 2016 from 6pm to 8pm at the Denzer-Farison-Hottinger & Snyder Funeral Home 360 East Center Street, Marion Ohio.  Graveside Funeral service will be held at 1pm on Friday August 12, 2016 at the Fairview Cemetery in Ostrander.

  • Deepest sympathy to my beloved aunt Nina’s family. I remember with fondness, our mom’s and dad’s playing euchre for hours while we explored the neighborhood, going to observatory with Steve, visiting with Jeff and the birth of Alex, Sharon coming over dressed and looking like a model. My favorite memory is going to California in 1973 with aunt Nina and uncle Gleen,mom and Sonnie and me. Off the charts fun, exciting, and best adventure of my childhood. Love to all.

  • Condolences to the family. I knew the Caskey family from Southland Lanes Bowling Alley. Alex and his Mom were close. They were always good friends.

  • When ever i see a lemon pie i think of my aunt Nina. My grandma, pauline Whissle ,loved her sister Nina. And now they are together in heavan At one time in my life my parents opened up a chicken resturant. I remember when uncle Glen and aunt Nina also opened up a chicken resturant. Both of them were very hard workers. But most of all i remember all her cats. God be with you all, Robin Peterson Dechert.

  • I am so blessed to have had Aunt Nina in my life. So patient, caring, giving and always smiling. So many wonderful memories to smile about. I loved visiting her at Christmas time and exchanging gifts. Her Christmas fudge was the best. She never missed sending me a birthday card. Her cats, and all cats, were so special to her. She also collected cat memorabilia and when I visited we would look at all the cat statues, wall hangings etc. and she would tell me who got them for her and a little story about some of them. We would laugh and reminisce, always having a great time together. She treated all people with great respect and I never heard her say a demeaning word about anyone. A truly unique human being who exuded love and compassion. I will miss her deeply, but know she lived a good and long life dearly loved by all who knew her.

    My deepest sympathy to her family. I am so sorry for your loss and know the ache in your heart.

    Love, Linda Roseberry Mayberry (Niece)
