COLUMBIA - Louise “Weezie” Lane Caskey, 75, passed away on March 7, 2019 in Columbia, South Carolina. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, March 11, 2019 at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.

Weezie attended Converse College and The University of South Carolina. She was a long-standing member of The Assembly, as well as a lifelong celebrant of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. One of her favorite places to be was in the cool air of Slick Rock Mountain in Brevard, NC. She was a dedicated wife and mother, a true and loyal friend, but her greatest gift was being “Meme” to her adoring grandchildren; they were the joy of her life.

Weezie is survived by her husband of 51 years, John Bell Caskey; son, Thomas Bell Caskey (Beverly Parker Caskey); daughter, Elise Caskey Washington (Carey Alexander Washington, II); sister, Page Lane Hodson (John Philip Hodson); step-mother, Elizabeth Sanford Lane; brother-in-law, Dr. C.

I can't begin to tell you how heartbroken I am over losing such a loving and beautiful friend. Weezie would often attend our knitting group (the Knitwits in Brevard, NC) when she came to stay at her house in Brevard. There was never a more classy and considerate lady. She will be dearly missed by all of us who knew her. Her smiling face would light up a room! We always had so much fun knitting and fixing our mistakes while solving the world's problems. There was never a shortage of laughter! If there was ever a person deserving of heaven, it was her! She carried her crosses well and with much dignity when God dealt her tough challenges! May she rest in peace along with her loving son and other family members. Although I am unable to attend the funeral, my thoughts and prayers will be with you. Weezie may be gone from this earth, but she will always be in my heart forever!!!
