Eola Mae Stull Casey

Funeral services for Eola Mae (Stull) Casey, 99, Berryton, KS, will be at 2 pm Saturday at the Stull United Methodist Church. Burial will follow at the Stull Cemetery. Mrs. Casey passed away peacefully at home May 3, 2016. She was a lifelong resident of the Stull community.

Born Oct 31, 1916, in Stull, KS, Eola was fourth of nine children to Matilda (Wulfkuhle) and Henry Stull. She married Emmett A. Casey on Jan 12, 1958 in Lawrence, sharing over 50 years of laughter, joy, and tears together. He preceded her in death Mar 5, 2009.

Eola, or Aunt Olie as she was affectionately called, received great joy from cooking for and spending time with family and friends—especially children, whether through her years of care giving for 24 families or visits from three generations of nieces and nephews. She enjoyed receiving company. Friends and family were often greeted with homemade treats like Angel food cake, apple pie, cinnamon rolls, or Bierocks and with tea parties for the children.

Eola was preceded in death by her parents; infant brother; and four sisters, Alberta Casey, Evelyn Stull, Geneva Stull, and Mary Ann Johanning. She is survived by her beloved niece, Julie (Johanning) and Robert Neff; sisters, Orinda Avey, Zella Stull, and Luella Rinard; and generations of adoring nieces and nephews.

She will be forever remembered for her patience, positive outlook, kind words, and caring soul.

Friends may call from noon to 8 p.m. Friday at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home, or visit with the family preceding the funeral service from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to the Stull United Methodist Church Youth Fellowship, sent in care of the funeral home.
