Re: NMB Confidential Assistant Passes Away
Washington, D.C. -- We regret to share the news that Barbara Casey passed away Saturday, July 2, 2005, of cancer and other complications at the George Washington University Hospital. She had served as Confidential Assistant (CA) to Chairman Read Van de Water since December 11, 2003. From December 28, 1999, Barbara also served as CA to former Member and Chairman Frank Duggan. She was a wonderful person, a great friend and much appreciated colleague.
Barbara loved this agency and all who worked here. She had looked forward to returning to the agency and getting back into the flow of the office. In 2003 and 2004, she enthusiastically managed the agency’s role in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), a government-wide charitable program, and was looking forward to the 2005 campaign. As a result of Barbara’s efforts, the NMB garnered the President’s Award for both years and additionally received Most Improved and Summitt Awards.
A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Ann's Catholic Church on Thursday, July 7, at 10 a.m. The church is located at 4001 Yuma St. NW, in Washington, DC. Interment at Mt. Olivet Cemetery at a later time will be private, but Barbara’s family and friends invite you to a reception in her honor immediately after Mass at DiCarlos’ Restaurant at 4822 Yuma St. In deference to the wishes of her family, donations, instead of flowers, may be made in her name to Marymount University, Arlington, VA.
Barbara Casey will be missed by all of us here at the National Mediation Board, and we are sure everyone joins us in sending thoughts and prayers to her family.
