In Memory of: Rosella Mae Cassidy
Rosella Mae Cassidy, 87, of Kingman passed away Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010, in Kingman. She was born Nov. 2, 1922, the second of nine children, in Shevlin, Minn.
She was raised in Minnesota on a farm during the Depression. In 1944, she married Jim Cassidy. They moved from Montana to Kingman in 1957 and lived there for 13 years while owning Jim's Glass, after which they lived in Minnesota until 1986, then re-located back to Kingman.
She was a founding member of Grace Lutheran Church. She was raised in a musical family and played and loved music all her life. One of her greatest pleasures was feeding people and being such a good cook. She always could find someone to eat what she made.
She loved God, attending church and fellowshipping with the other members.
Rosella is survived by her daughter, Linda (Gary) Overson; son, Jim (Betty) Cassidy; brothers, Albert (Judy) and Daryl Fradenburgh; sister, Sharron (Richard) Sand; sister-in-law, Peggy; eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 19, at Grace Lutheran Church, 2101 Harrison St. Her ashes will be interred in Minnesota beside her husband at Moose Creek Cemetery at a later date.
