Anne McLaughlin LaCasse

August 29, 1929 — September 19, 2018

Anne McLaughlin LaCasse passed away on Wednesday, September 19th surrounded by her loving family.

The daughter of Harry and Jane (Tucker) McLaughlin, Anne was born on August 29th, 1929 at Memorial Hospital in Syracuse. One of the first to be baptized in St. Charles Borromeo Church in Westvale, Anne would later attend and graduate from Cherry Road School, Solvay High School and Powelson Business Institute. She also attended LeMoyne College while working at Carrier Corporation. However, it was her trip to the Adirondacks in 1951 with her friends that was most memorable, as it was there that she met her future husband Don LaCasse. Married in 1954 at St. Charles, they embarked on building the rest of their lives together. Hers was one spent with multiple charitable organizations including the Ladies of Charity in Albany and Francis House in Syracuse. During most recent years, you would find her at her grandchildren's every game, recital and major life event.

Anne was predeceased by her parents, her sisters and their husbands; Grace (Tom) Dwyer and Jane (George) Grover. Anne is survived by her loving husband Don, children Mike (Barb) LaCasse, Kathy (Mike) Wiese; grandchildren Mathew (Sarah), Brian (Milene), Patrick and Michelle Wiese and Kathryn LaCasse; her many nieces and nephews; and all those friends she touched with her smiling face throughout her life. Sincere gratitude is extended to all the special individuals who aided in Anne's care, especially these last few years. Calling hours will be from 5 pm to 8 pm on Wednesday, September 26th at Burns Garfield Funeral Home, 3175 East Genesee St., Syracuse, NY.
