October 17, 1941 ~ September 11, 2018 (age 76)


Carol Ann Cassity, 76, of Pleasant Hill, formerly of Knob Noster, was born October 17, 1941, in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Harry and Opal (O’Neal) Heerman.  She departed this life, Tuesday, September 11, 2018, at her son’s home in Pleasant Hill.

On August 26, 1961, she was united in marriage to David Harris Cassity in Elko, Nevada.  He preceded her in death on July 16, 2004.

Carol was also preceded in death by her parents, and one brother, Bill O’Neal.

Carol worked at the Dining Facility at Whiteman AFB for several years and was an active volunteer with the Thrift Shop at Whiteman.  Carol loved playing Bingo and going to the casino.  The greatest joy Carol had was her grandchildren.  She was there when they came into this world and there for everything afterwards whether it be birthday, football, softball, wrestling, a recital or making a special delivery of donuts hundreds of miles away.  

A Celebration of Carol’s life was held  Saturday, September 15, 2018, at the funeral home.  Reverend D. Kent Deubner officiated.
