I knew Casey for many years. We were co-workers at GEICO. She loved her family so much and could not wait to retire and join them in her beloved PA. As a PA girl from the area near Pittsburgh myself we shared many stories and had similarities in our growing up. I loved Casey as if she were a member of my own family. May she RIP and be reunited again with her loved ones in heaven.

I am heartbroken to just learn of Casey's passing. I met Casey at GEICO back in 1976, when she hired me as her administrative assistant. I was in my early 20's and she took me under her wing. She was the greatest mentor, boss and friend anyone could ask for throughout my career there. She always had that smile that lifted you up in the worst days and such a sweet, caring demeanor that you immediately felt comfortable with and protected by. After her retirement, I stayed in contact via cards, and always looked forward to sharing life's journey with her. She was one of the best. I loved my dear friend and will miss her. Prayers to her family for their loss. Rest in peace sweet friend until we meet again. Sylvia Puddy (Nicola)

It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I have been lucky to have been a friend to Casey for over fifty years. What remarkable person. She was driven by several virtues -service before self and La Familia comes first. A conversation with her was always positive. She was one of the best listeners I have ever known. My children knew her as Aunt Casey and we were blessed to be a part of her extended family. We have lost a member of the greatest generation. People whose families spoke funny and came from the old country. they were the backbone of this country and helped make it great. Casey, I will miss our talks and dinners together. We followed each other from West Aliquippa and DC and what great experience. God speed my friend. I am so happy our live paths have crossed. As others will say our lives were richer because of you. Thank you for it all.
