Casey was born on May 8, 1986 in Decatur, Illinois, the daughter of Patrick and Cheryl Puckett Williams. She was a Class of 2004 graduate from Central A & M High School. While attending college, she enjoyed charity work and volunteering at various organizations. Casey was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Assumption.
Casey was a vibrant, fun-loving, free spirited, twenty-three year old. She was planning to become a special education teacher, working two jobs, and was excited about the new path that she had chosen. Sadly, in October of 2009, Casey died in a car accident on her way to work. However, because of her decision to become an organ and tissue donor, she helped improve the lives of several people. The Casey Williams Foundation was created so that Casey’s spirit can live on through love.
