   She  was  born  Sept  27, 1926,  near  Red  Boiling  Springs,
Tennessee,  and  died   on   October   26,   2016,   in  Madison,
Alabama, at the age of 90 years.  She was  preceded  in  death
by her husband of 50 years, Ray Cason, who passed  away  20
years ago.  She is survived by sons: Jeff Cason  (wife Marla)  of
Madison, Alabama and Joe Cason  of  Nashville, Tennessee;  4
grandchildren:  Amber Wingfield  of  Jacksonville, Florida, Rhea
Wenger   of   Smyrna,  Tennessee,   William   Paul   Cason    of
Nashville, Tennessee,   and   Andrea  Hamilton   of  Vancouver,
Washington;   2   great-grandchildren:   Keenan Wingfield   and
Bailey Wenger;    and    2  sisters: Alma Holloway of Simi Valley,
California   and   Elizabeth Jenkins of Cookeville, Tennessee. In
addition  to  her  husband,  she  was  preceded  in  death  by  2
sisters, 2 brothers, and a half-brother and half-sister.  

   Mrs. Cason  was  a  mother  and  a  registered  nurse.    She
graduated from the University  of  Tennessee  with  her  nursing
degree in 1977.  After  working  at  St. Thomas Hospital  in   the
cardiac care unit for about 15 years, she retired due to  a  back
disability.  She began pursuing  family  history  research,  which
resulted in the accumulation of over 44,000 names through  the
lineage of her and her husband’s family.  She published a book
of the 1870 census of Jackson County, Tennessee, which   was
the result of meticulously transcribing records  at  the  State   of
Tennessee Archives and working with her son and  daughter-in-
law to get it published.  A copy of the book can be found  in  the
library of the State of Tennessee.

   After  having  lived  in  Nashville  for  almost  60  years,   she
moved to Madison, Alabama in 2011.  She also lived in Chicago
and St. Louis.

   She was  a  New  Testament  Christian,  having  obeyed  the
gospel in her teens.  She worshipped  with  the   Franklin  Road
church of Christ, which later became the Woodland Hills  church
of Christ after  moving  to  a  new  location.  At  the  time  of  her
passing,  she  was  a  member  of  the  Jordan  Park  church  of
Christ.  

   The family would like to especially thank the  leadership  and
staff  of  Madison  Village  Assisted  Living   and   Valley     View
Rehabilitation   and   Nursing  Care   for   their   compassionate,
patient attention to Mrs. Cason’s needs  the  last  3  years.   We
would also like to thank the Barnes family and  Mrs. Norma Jean
Griffin for their compassion and comfort.
