Obituary

Obituary for Margaret Mary "Margie" Cassin (Tyrrell)

Margaret (Margie) Tyrrell Cassin, 83, cherished wife of Thomas Cassin, for 59 years, dedicated mother of Thomas Francis Cassin of Newtown CT, Barbara Ellen Yeager of Ellington CT, and Margaret (Peggy) Cassin of Bethel CT, died at home on November 3, 2019 surrounded by her family.

Margie was born in New York City, April 10, 1936, daughter of Thomas and Ellen Tyrrell, of the Bronx and Warwick, N.Y. She was a former employee of Manhattan College N.Y.C. and Trinity Church in Newtown CT. Margie was a member of the Legion of Mary at Holy Spirit parish in the Bronx, and was a Eucharistic Minister, Religious Education Teacher, and member of the Prayer Shawl Committee at St. Rose Church in Newtown CT.

Throughout her life, Margie was generous and steadfast in her nurturing of others. Margie was committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and exemplified them in her daily life. She consistently maintained a warm and welcoming home. Her creative talents and her attention to detail were evident in her professional work and are elaborately shown in her colorful stitcheries, which are individualized recordings of special events in the lives of family and friends.

In addition to her devoted husband Tom and their three caring children, Margie is survived by her son-in-law Scott Yeager and three loving grandchildren Thomas Cassin, Ryan Cassin, and Colin Yeager. Margaret was predeceased by her sister-in-law Philomena Tyrrell of Warwick, NY and brother Thomas Tyrrell of Willingboro NJ, and is survived by his wife Anna Tyrrell of Mt. Laurel NJ, Margie’s brother John J. Tyrrell of Venice FL, and her two sisters, Anne McGowan and her husband James of Mahwah NJ, and Mary Catherine McEvoy and her husband Robert of New Fairfield CT, as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, and their families. Memorial contributions may be made to Regional Hospice and Palliative Care, 30 Milestone Road, Danbury, CT 06810; www.regionalhospicect.org. Calling hours are on Thursday, November 7, 2109 from 4:00pm to 7:00 pm at Honan Funeral Home, Newtown, CT. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 11:00 am at St. Rose of Lima Church, Newtown CT. Interment at St. Rose Cemetery will follow the Mass.
