Delores ‘Casey’ Heyer, 84

Delores “Casey” (née Holm) Heyer, age 84, passed away peacefully Thursday, July 19, 2018, at her home in Edina

She graduated from Cokato High School and Hamline University, and received her master’s degree from St. Thomas University.

Delores was a teacher at Edina High School for over 30 years, and loved going to work. She enjoyed following her students in their activities, and cherished the lifelong friendships she maintained over the years.

She traveled the world extensively and cherished the friends she made along the way. Because of her interests in skiing, fishing, and music, she had an eclectic group of friends.

Casey loved going to class reunions, hearing her students talk about the stock market, and learning the bird dance to accordion music. She admonished her son that travel and education last forever and things rust; and she wanted everyone to know that.

Delores is survived by her son, Hal, and his wife, Jane; along with their three children, Ann, Grace, and Will.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Elin Holm; her husband, Basil; and her sister, Margaret Freed.

From her dad, Casey got her inspiration for music; and from her mother, her zest for teaching and travel.

Private funeral and internment took place at Stockholm cemetery in Cokato. Memorials may be made to donor’s choice or world peace and environmental groups.
