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 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.
