Cassandra Lynn Sheik was born on November 16, 1984 to Charles and Patricia Sheik in Omaha, NE. Cassie graduated from Skutt Catholic High School in 2003. She furthered her education at Mount Marty University and received a degree in Religious Studies.
Cassie was a Core Member of the Lifeteen/ Overflow program where she shared her enthusiasm and love for Christ with young people. She had a spark of tenderness, which children of all ages gravitated towards. Cassie was a kind, warmhearted soul that was quick with a smile or smart remark, but always there to offer a helping hand. Her faith was a beacon of light in a dark world, strengthened by her infectious, positive attitude. God’s love shone through her life of friendship, service, and loving others.
Cassie had a wonderful sense of humor and was able to laugh at herself. Though we never could get her to eat normally with a utensil, she always managed to feed herself food and spirituality to others. She loved spending time with family and friends and never turned down a challenge, even illness. She humbly offered her pain for the souls in purgatory and loved God with her life.
