In memory of
Marie Theresa CASSEL
CASSEL, Marie Theresa Marie Theresa Cassel cruised away on Eagle's Wings on October 16, 2016, at the age of 89. She was born in Philadelphia, PA on April 15, 1927, to parents Edward and Helen Dougherty. Marie (also known as Pat or M-ie) is survived by her daughter, Linda Marie Gowen, George O'Gorman, and her granddaughter, Genna Marie Gowen. A licensed practical nurse, her beauty and remarkable toughness amazed and delighted many. She enjoyed modeling, voice overs, reading for the blind, singing in the church choir, and was a long-time volunteer at Palm Beach Gardens Medical center. A breast cancer survivor, Mrs. Cassel loved and cared for her husband of 32 years, Harrison Cassel, until his death in 2013. She was an awesome wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. While she will be greatly missed, we will always be "side by side". Her family would like to expressively thank the exceptional nurses, aides, and staff of the Skilled Nursing Facility at LaPosada for their compassionate and respectful care over the last 20 months. Deepest appreciation is also given to her aide, Deloris, for her kindness and loving devotion to our M-ie. Sincere and heartfelt thanks to the many friends who supported Mother's family during the many difficult times. Services for Mrs. Cassel will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Genesis Assistance Dogs, Inc., P.O. Box 3101, West Palm Beach, FL 33402.
