Rose M. Cassady obituary

Rose Marvin Cassady

Rose Marvin Cassady, born Nov. 27, 1929, passed away in Sylacauga, Ala. on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at the age of 89.

The family will receive friends on Monday, March 25 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Bethel Baptist Church, located 15 Church St., Fort Deposit.  The service will follow with the Rev. Eric Jackson, the Rev. Bruce Coker and the Rev. Curry Spoon officiating.  Interment will follow at Myrtlewood Cemetery in Fort Deposit.

Cassady was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Carl (Pete) Cassady; parents James Edward (Jack) Marvin and Louise Norris Marvin; and her sister and brother-in-law, Jacqueline (Jackie) Marvin Cooper and Oliver Glenn Cooper.

She is survived by daughters, Teresa Cassady Offord and husband John and Tracey Cassady Smith and husband Ken; sister-in-law, Nell Cassady Heartsill; brother-in-law Henry Neal Cassady; and several nieces and nephews.

Cassady was the Valedictorian for the Hayneville High School class of 1947 and spent her work life in bookkeeping and office management.

She was a long-time member of Bethel Baptist Church in Fort Deposit where she served as church secretary/clerk for forty-six years.

She will be remembered for her love of God, family, church, and Fort Deposit. And, most importantly for her spectacular banana pudding!  Rose loved to sew, crochet, watch Auburn football and play dominoes. (She was a cut-throat domino player.)

A special thanks to the caregivers at Sylacauga Health and Rehab who helped care for Cassady during the past two years and to the ICU Department of Coosa Valley Medical Center who cared for her in her last few days.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Bethel Baptist Church, P.O. Box 261, Fort Deposit, AL 36032.

Pallbearers will be Taylor Cooper, Tyler Cooper, Fred Davison, Eric Ellis, Robert Hunter and Ben Walker.
