Roberta “Bobbie” (Carson) Kase, 64, passed away peacefully due to complications from pneumonia on February 13, 2013. She was born on October 20, 1948, in Franklin, Pennsylvania, and received her undergraduate degree from Mercyhurst College.

Bobbie was an active member at St. Thomas the Apostle School and Parish where she was a member in Our Lady of the Assumption Sodality and pioneered the Spanish program at St. Thomas the Apostle School. Bobbie treasured each of her students who affectionately called her “Señora.” Bobbie’s family and friends will remember her for her genuine love of others, her unwavering faith, and her insurmountable strength, especially during a miraculous recovery from a stroke she recently had. Bobbie is survived by her husband Thomas, her sisters Patricia Hollers, Janet Lee, and Laurie Carson, her children Shelly Bogetich-Klose (husband Christian Klose), David Kase (wife Sinead Kase), and Megan Kase, and grandchildren Wilhelm and Charlotte Klose.

    Bobbie’s loving soul leaves such a lasting impression on those with which she came in contact. She touched the lives of so many with her beautiful smile and generous heart, and bettered those who knew her. With warm and loving gratitude, I am so grateful for the time and friendship Bobbie and I shared. Richard Bach says, “What the caterpiller calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” Well, Bobbie has earned her wings to fly with the Angels. I send much love to her and to her family as God welcomes her Home.

    To the Family of Roberta Kase, Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. May you look forward to a time when this verse comes true. “And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.

    I am so sorry, I have not seen Bobbie for years but always felt close to all of the girls. I cherish the memories I have from growing up with you. I pray all of Bobbies family will stay strong and love each other as much as she loved you. Rest in Peace.

    All my love,

    Dearest Kase family, I send my deepest sympathy. Bobbie will be missed by so many. Reflect on all the wonderful, fun, happy memories that you have to bring you comfort. Also remember the Bible is the greatest source of comfort.

    2 Corinthians 1: 3,4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort…

    Psalm 46: 1 God is a refuge and strength, a help that is readily to be found during distresses

    Acts 24: 15 and I have hope toward God, which hope these {men} themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends and strangers, as well as your memories give you comfort to help you endure the days ahead. The Bible also offers comfort. “For God is near to those broken at heart. “ Ps 34:17,18. Our Creator promises that there will soon be a time when “death will be no more.” Revelation 21:4.
