Arline M. Borsey Casey, age 88, of Monroe, formerly of Stamford, wife of the late Arthur F. Casey Jr., passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 17, 2024, with her loving family by her side.

Arline cherished the times that she spent with her grandchildren, whether playing Gin Rummy with her late husband Arthur or granddaughter Casey, facetiming with grandsons Andrew and Tyler, making funny faces back and forth with Andrew, admiring Andrew’s artwork, watching Tyler perform in the Georgia Tech marching band, sitting with Casey at the kitchen table as she worked on various paintings and crafts, playing games with the family during the holidays, and keeping up the tradition of the famous “Hess Truck” and making her homemade stuffing at Thanksgiving.Arline also enjoyed going out to lunch and talking to her closest friends, watching game shows, and the simple joy of looking out the window at the dogs and chickens in the backyard.

Though she may no longer walk among us, her spirit will live on in the lives she touched. Arline was loved beyond measure and will be missed.
