Cassidy’s family has published an obituary in her memory. It reads in part:
“Cassidy was kind, bright, ambitious, had a great sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. Every room lit up when she walked in and she touched the soul of every person she met. Siblings, family, and friends were her highest priority: they meant the world to her. She loved helping her dad work on projects around the house, playing games, lounging in the sun, spending time with kids, and hanging out with family. She loved movies (good or bad), chicken wings, hot sauce, her Mom’s mashed potatoes, and almost always had a Starbucks in her hand.
“A 2019 graduate of Coleman High School, she was a sophomore at SUNY New Paltz and previously attended SUNY Cortland. A natural athlete, she played soccer, basketball, and tennis; she excelled at whatever she did. Cassidy was simply the best, she will be missed by all.”
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to one of Cassidy’s favorite organizations: Christmas Wishes Ulster County, Inc. (P.O. Box 4152, Kingston, New York, 12402).
