Ida Cassari

Ida Cassari, 107, died Dec. 31, 2011.

She was born in Rock Springs on Nov 12, 1904.

She spent the next 54 years in Superior, then moved to Rock Springs with her youngest son Jack.

She worked at Broadway Drive In Liquor until she retired.

At age 97, she moved to San Diego to be near her son Harry and his wife and family where she lived until her death.

Cassari took great pride in her family and Italian heritage, making three trips to Italy to maintain family ties that remained close for more than 100 years and also a trip to Brazil to visit cousins there.

She was active in the Catholic Church her entire life both in Superior and Rock Springs, seldom missing Mass.

Hers was one of the first families to settle in Superior, and she remained a close friend to many of those ex-Superior residents who moved to Rock Springs when the last coal mine closed there.

She was a stoic in a harsh environment populated by immigrants driven by hunger from the Old County and in Superior where they dug coal in a dangerous and sometimes lethal way.

She is survived by son Harry, granddaughter Christy, grandsons Jack and Brad, great-grandsons Alex and Jake, and great-granddaughter Nina.

She was preceded in death by son Jack, husband Albert Angeli, and second husband Harry Cassari, her parents, five brothers and granddaughter Gina.

A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Monday at Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Rock Springs.

Interment was in Rock Springs Municipal Cemetery.
