Obituary of Betty Christine Casseday


Betty Christine (Emerson) Casseday, 93, passed from this life on January 27, 2024, at Lavender Fields Assisted Living in Beverly, WV.


She was born May 19, 1930, in Bretz, WV, the daughter of Glenn and Mabel (Johnson) Emerson.


Betty grew up in the Masontown, WV area. On May 22, 1948, she married Junior “Hoppy” Roy Casseday who preceded her in death October 2, 2017.  She worked several years at the Sterling Faucet company in Reedsville, WV.  After leaving there she took great pride in caring for her family. She and her husband were very active members of the Masontown Church of the Nazarene where she served many years as a Sunday School teacher and was very involved in the church’s missionary projects.


Betty is survived by her son Larry (Terry) of Elkins, WV, grandson Dr. Adam Casseday (Kadra) of Elkins, WV, and granddaughter Julie Casseday Stutler (Bret) of Winfield, WV, great-granddaughters Ruby and Annie Stutler and great-grandsons Vernon and Norman Casseday, brothers-in-law Richard Casseday (Carolyn), Phil Casseday, Jim Casseday (Diane), and Bob Casseday; sisters-in-law Iva Casseday and Doylene Davis (Ronnie) as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.


She was preceded in death by sisters Frances Emerson and Helen Southall and brother Donald Emerson; brothers-in-law Rev. Lynn Casseday, Fred Casseday, Dave Molisee, Albert Shaffer, Bob Davis, and Eathel Southall; sisters-in-law Arlene Molisee, Eva Shaffer, Linda Emerson, and Kathleen Casseday; and niece Lanita Southall Vicars.


Friends may call the Field Funeral Home in Masontown on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 from 10 am until the 12-noon time of service at the funeral home with Rev. Tim Heaney officiating.  Interment will follow in the Masontown Cemetery.


The family would like to extend thanks to the staff at Lavender Fields Assisted Living, neighbors Tracy and Julie Livengood, caregiver Debbie Rouzee, and a special thanks to her cousin Donna Eddy for her extra care and companionship.


She received many flowers during her stay at Lavender Fields so the family is asking that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her memory to the Masontown Church of the Nazarene, P.O. Box 345, Masontown, WV 26542.
