Casie Lyn Ulrich was born on March 9, 1978, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She was the daughter of Keith “Fuzzy” and Lori (Ryan) Ulrich. She was baptized as an infant in the Christian faith and attended school in Colorado and Nebraska. Casie spent much of her life in the state of Wisconsin, where she developed her love for football and the Packers. Casie worked several jobs and while with AT&T, she was transferred to Marshall in 2012. Shortly thereafter Casie began to work at Applebee’s where she served in every role. Her drive to help others and keep them fed was obvious in the way she navigated as a server and bartender over the past nine years. Casie was active in softball most of her life, even making her way on to an all-star team. She played on Summer Leagues and later enjoyed sharing her love of softball with her children by coaching their teams. Casie’s other enjoyment in life included Pull Tabs, playing bingo, going to the casinos, hanging out with friends at Fuzzy’s or the Varsity Pub, and spending the hot summer days at the lake.
Casie died on Thursday, June 3, 2021, at the Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She reached the age of 43 years, 2 months, and 24 days. Blessed be her memory.
