Marie Ellen Cas­ci­ato

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

Born on Novem­ber 14, 1937, Marie Ellen Cas­ci­ato spent her early years grow­ing up in Philadel­phia. She was a 1955 grad­u­ate of West Catholic High School, fin­ish­ing her ed­u­ca­tion at Mis­eri­cordia Nurs­ing School in 1958. She went on to prac­tice nurs­ing at Mis­eri­cordia Hos­pi­tal un­til she and Lou had chil­dren, but never lost her love of the pro­fes­sion.

After mov­ing to Yeadon and then West Ch­ester, Marie qui­etly con­tin­ued to care for neigh­bors when nec­es­sary and pro­vided com­mu­nity nurs­ing ser­vices for sev­eral years. She and Lou were ac­tive mem­bers in St. Louis Parish and CYO and have been re­garded as dear friends and neigh­bors to many peo­ple over the years.

Marie loved trav­el­ing and spend­ing time with her chil­dren Karen Mon­aghan, Louis, Maryann Kosk­i­nen and Kath­leen Lep­pert and their fam­i­lies (Mike, Jim, Jeff, Kate, Dan, Sarah, Brian, Matt, Rachel, Re­becca, and Emma). She en­joyed sum­mer va­ca­tions in Wild­wood and Stone Har­bor, read­ing good mys­ter­ies, play­ing Scrab­ble, and test­ing the luck of the Ir­ish at games of chance with her son Louie. She also loved spend­ing time with her brothers Jack and Jimmy, her sis­ters in heart, Ann and Kathy, and with her good friends.

Marie’s strength and love car­ried her fam­ily through the loss of her son, Louis Jr. (2015) and her hus­band Louis (2017). Through­out her own med­i­cal strug­gles, she de­fied the odds with great dig­nity un­til her death on Jan­uary 10th, 2019, sur­rounded as ever by the fam­ily and friends she loved.

Her life and spirit will be cel­e­brated at her Fu­neral Liturgy at Ss.
