Casey Frances M., age 97, of New Hope, formerly of South Minneapolis and Incarnation Parish. Survived by loving sister, Helen Casey; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. A dedicated teacher who helped children reach their ``full potential'' for 43 years, 33 of those at Lauderdale Elementary School in the Village of Lauderdale (1938-71). Miss Casey ``probably received more appreciative notes from parents than any other teacher in the history of Lauderdale School,'' said a former principal. ``Frank'' had a fondness for a good book, a love of interesting conversation, and an Irish appreciation for a story or joke well told. She will be long remembered for her chocolate chip cookies and Christmas fudge. Mass of Christian Burial at St. John's Church, Darwin, MN at 10:00 AM on Saturday. Visitation one hour before Mass at the church. Interment St. John's Cemetery, Darwin. Memorials in Frances Casey's name preferred to the Pastoral Care Department at St. Therese Care Center, 8000 Bass Lake Rd., New Hope, MN 55428, c/o Sr. Margaret Kramer. May the road rise up to meet you, Frank. ENGA-WHITE GLEASON 612-827-5838
