Mary Ann E. Casey
Mary Ann E. Casey of Willow Grove, formerly of Glenside, died unexpectedly on Oct. 6, 2012. She was an employee of Abington Memorial Hospital, PAL volunteer and Abington Police Citizen Volunteer.
She was the daughter of James F. and Elsie (nee Kolar); sister of John Casey (Vickie McKee ) , Carol Haggerty ( Phill i p), Teresa Reed (Scott) and Joanne Casey (Jeffrey Culotta); loving aunt of Aileen Haggerty (Erme Maula), Lisa O’Hagan (JP), Philip Haggerty, KC Reed and Eric Reed; and great-aunt of Delcy and Sadie. She is also survived by a boatload of cousins.
She was kind, generous and tireless in her dedication to the service of others. In 2010, she was honored with the Governor’s Award for Outstanding Citizen Crime Prevention. This award recognizes the many hours private citizens selflessly devote to local crime prevention projects, including youth-oriented activities, local crime watch, and initiatives to protect the elderly — all without any monetary compensation. In the 2008-2009 year alone, she volunteered more than 350 hours. For over 10 years, she dedicated herself to Abington PAL on a weekly basis because she believed in providing a safe and fun environment for local youth. Her collective thousands of hours of service earned her the President of the United State’s Silver Service award numerous times.
She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and all who were touched by her compassionate nature. A funeral Mass was celebrated Wednesday, Oct. 10, 11 a.m. at the Church of St. Luke the Evangelist, 2316 (at Fairhill Ave) Glenside.
Relatives and friends were invited to William R. May Funeral Home, 354 N. Easton Road (at Keswick Ave) Tuesday, 7-9 p.m.
