Casey Marie Swendsen, age 36, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 1st, 2021, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She was born February 21st, 1985 to Mary Catherine Conway (of Stoughton, WI) and Andrew Swendsen (of Florida). Casey was the proud mother of two boys, who were the light in her world, and the oldest of four siblings that she helped raise and guide.
Casey was a lover of all things sweet and innocent; animals, babies, and the elderly. She saw magic in everything and everyone. Casey had a sense of humor that was second to none with an infectious laugh that brought joy to those around her. She could make others feel comfortable and at ease within seconds with her caring personality and in fact, was a caregiver to hundreds of people in need over the years, and more recently she was focused on her role as an administrative assistant. Often shy at first, she would become the life of the party, bringing out the best in those around her. Anyone who knew or encountered Casey admired her free spirit and her ability to live life to the fullest no matter the circumstances.
The loss of Casey will be felt by many, particularly by her children Domanik Caruso Jr. and Eric Caruso, her father Andrew Swendsen, her siblings Brianna (Broderick Davis) Larson, Lacy (Randy) Schoonover (née Wideen), Levi Huvila, nephew Harrison Schoonover along with many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and stepfather, Dennis Huvila. She was recently preceded in death by her mother, Mary Catherine Huvila and Grandmother, Mary Jane Lunde Burrell.
