EXETER -- Casey LeeAnne Goodwin of Exeter was taken from us on Thursday March, 13, 2003, by a drunk driver.

Reed and Lynne Goodwin brought Casey into the world on Oct. 26, 1982, in Hayward, Calif., and she continued to fill their lives with incredible joy everyday thereafter.

Casey was raised and educated in the closeknit community of Exeter, Calif. She enjoyed every aspect of attending Exeter High School, graduating in 2000. She was active in Friday Night Live, ASB and community service. Casey served on the California Youth Council for three years and interned with the California Friday Night Live Partnership. She was a four-year varsity swimmer and water polo player and two-year MVP. In pursuit of her teaching credential and lifelong dream, Casey attended Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo where she also played water polo and formed many wonderful friendships.

Casey was more than a sister to her brothers Christopher and Kyle and sister Kellie. She was their cheerleader, best friend and guiding star. The love that they shared was like a circle that you wanted to join, yet you knew it was theirs alone. at preschool and continuing into college. Robin Crookshanks, Allyson Eddy, Scott Montgomery, Garth Gipson, Dustin Hall, Evan McMillan and other special people, were part of her. She gave her heart to Ryan Warren.

Casey was blessed with many lifelong friendships that started in the sandbox. When we think of Casey we will remember her enthusiasm for life, her love of family and friends, her sweet spirit and beautiful being.

Casey's life was rich with the love of her grandparents Frank and Lou Viola, John and Anne Baker, Reed and Doreen Goodwin and Dianna Thornsborough. She was adored by her aunts and uncles Laura and Steve Preciado, Leslie and Sean Pennington, Diane and Barry Sudbury, Joe and Wind Goodwin, Jim Goodwin, April Pagel and Vivian and Rich Weaver. She was the oldest of many loving cousins.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Casey Goodwin memorial fund, P.O. Box 601 Exeter, Ca 93221.

Casey's life was celebrated at 3:30 p.m. Monday, March 17, at the Visalia First Assembly of God Church on the corner of Caldwell Avenue and Akers Street. Arrangements by Smith Family Chapel, Exeter.
