Born in Mossey River, Manitoba, and raised as a farm girl near Ethelbert, Cassie relates her biography in two books she published: Roots, A Life in Review and Small Beginnings.
Married to an Ethelbert farmer, Cassie took an active role in the farming operations while raising 3 children. Being resourceful, she found pleasure in creative ways to financial viability.
In 1977, Cassie went back to school to obtain her Grade 12 graduating one year after the last of her children! She took night courses in business and obtained her dream job as a secretary. This was the completion of an unfinished fantasy and she felt gratified and proud of her accomplishments.
From 1980 to 2006, Cassie traveled not only on the continent but also worldwide and kept detailed travel logs of these highlights of her life.
Now delighting in her retirement, she published a children book called Sally Snowflake's Christmas. Currently she's delved into writing novels, the first being The Secret In Her Heart.
