LOGANSPORT — Delores L. Martin Kasch, 75, Logansport, went home to be with Jesus at 4:27 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21, 2012, at Logansport Memorial Hospice Care Unit.

Delores was born in Ithaca, N.Y., on Sept. 20,1937, to Mark A. and Mary (Morgan) Spencer. She married Joseph Kasch on Jan. 7, 2007. Delores worked at Logansport State Hospital until she retired in 2003 after 23 years of employment.

She graduated from Zelienople High School, Zelienople, Penn., in 1954 and attended Washington Missionary Collage in Takoma Park, Md. She attended the Seventh Day Adventist Church and her hobbies were crocheting and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include her husband, Joseph Kasch; children, Joyce (Carl) Barnes, Deborah (Jeff) Keeley, and Lewis Dean Deeds Jr. (Angie), all of Galveston; daughter Pam (Larry) Winas, Kellogg, Idaho; son Rob Elliott, Baltimore, Md.; step-daughter Diane Bagley, Logansport; stepson David Kasch, Logansport; brothers Ronald Spencer and Mike Keegan, both of Kokomo; grandchildren, Cheryl Lobenthal, Carl (Sami) Auten Jr., Nathan (Mallory) Lee, Ashley Freeman, Amanda Deeds, Christopher (Taylor) Barnes, Emily Lee, Zach Auten, Joesph Deeds, Carl Barnes Jr., Nichole Barnes, Christina (Rick) Rebellon, Allison Claymore, Megan Barnes; step-grandsons Brent Bagley and Dane Miller; great-grandchildren Dillon, Caysen, Elijah, Isaiah, Ty, Chace, Kira, Lynlie, Asher, Julia, Pamela, Briana, Crystal, Ryan, Josh, Heidi, Konner, Nathaniel, Jacinda, Samantha, and special adopted grandaughter Rachel Burge.

Words can’t express our sorrow and pain over losing you and yet we feel complete and utter joy that you are no longer suffering and are pain free. Go and enjoy those you have lost and now have again. We sure miss you, but heaven is sweeter with you there.

She was preceded in death by parents, husband Lewis Dean Deeds Sr., sons Allen and Dean Tattrie, stepmother Dorthy Spencer and brother Bill Morgan.

A funeral service will be 2 p.m. Tuesday at Murray Weaver Funeral Home in Galveston with the Rev. Blake Hall officiating. Burial will be at Center United Methodist Church Cemetery near Young America.
