Archive: Cassie’s passing leaves void

The community of Ridgeway notes with sadness the passage of a sweet young lady, Cassandra Willson.

Cassie died unexpectedly Sept. 30 and has left a void among the many people who called her friend.

“Everyday I look up out the window and think I can see her,” said Denise Grenier from her Ridge Road shop.

“She loved the colour pink, Minnie Mouse and Ashley and Kate Olsen. Socks that had toes,” she said.

“She took the bus everywhere, down to Giant Tiger, loved crossword puzzles. She loved the summer, hated the winter.”

Cassie filled her day visiting the businesses in Ridgeway and drinking tea at Doreen’s.

“Every day that she saw me,” said Shirley Opie, “she said ‘Hi, beautiful,’ and massaged my neck. I guess she knew how stressed I was.”

Cassie had kinds words for everyone.

“Lynnette at Brodie’s was ‘lovely, lovely Lynnette. I’m ‘beautiful Mrs. Jewson’,” said Bev Jewson.

“She would take Lynnette tea. She loved needlepoint on plastic canvas and gave them to some of the business people. Everybody loved Cassie.”

Grenier suggests an appropriate memorial for Cassie would be to display pink Minnie Mouse and Olsen twins balloons all along Ridge Road.

A service was held Oct. 7 at St. George’s Church and interment was at McAffee Cemetery.
