Ann Lenore Gallagher Caskey, age 83, died peacefully on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 in Spokane, Washington. Ann was born on June 30, 1934 in Charlo, Montana, the 10th child of homesteaders, Michael and Helen Gallagher.
After some time in Butte, Montana the family move to Seattle. Ann attended Holy Angels High School where she was the first one in her family to graduate. In Seattle she eventually met her husband. A devoted wife and mother, Ann was an excellent seamstress (most of her family and friends benefited from that!) who also enjoyed baking and gardening. She had many other interests including reading, puzzles, taking cruises, volunteering, furniture reconditioning and house remodeling. Most of all, she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Ann is survived by her husband of 64 years, James Caskey, daughter Lorie (Wayne) Janosky, sons Kevin (BO), Robert and Thomas (Donna), grandchildren Erin (Jake) Menard, Brandon (Laura) Janosky, great grandchildren Bennett, Ella, Miles, Bridgette, Molly and Bryant and sisters Elsie, Catherine and Sharon.
Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on March 19, 2018 at 11:00 am at St. Augustine's Catholic Church, 428 W 19th Ave. Spokane, WA with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of Spokane, 121 S Arthur Street Spokane, WA 99202.
Thank you to all the wonderful people there who provided outstanding care to Ann and the family in her final days.
