Tribute & Message From The Family


Constance "Connie" Margaret Bertetti Casseb, a lifetime resident of San Antonio, was born on August 27, 1926, to John Andrew and Margaret Cadena Bertetti. She entered into her eternal life on May 13, 2020, at the age of 93, surrounded by her children. Her presence will be deeply missed.

After graduating from Jefferson High School in 1944, she attended Incarnate Word College where she received her Baccalaureate degree. She taught at Crockett Elementary School for several years.

Connie was a kind and gentle soul who touched many lives. She loved unconditionally and was loved by all who knew her but none more than her husband, George Casseb, the love of her life. They were married on May 27, 1950 and were blessed with 67 years of marriage. In addition to being a loving wife, she was a devoted mother whose relationship with her six children was undeniably strong, nurturing and endearing.

Connie also found the time to participate in numerous endeavors. She took great pride in being a Daughter of the Republic of Texas and was especially fond of her membership in the San Antonio Conservation Society, where she served with many life-long friends. She was also active in many civic and social organizations including the Club Sembradores de Amistad de San Antonio, Gibbons Literary Society, St. Monica's Guild, the Assistance Guild of San Antonio and her beloved Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church Altar Society.

Connie is preceded in death by her husband, George Casseb; her parents, John and Margaret Bertetti; her brother, Lawrence Andrew Bertetti; her son, George Andrew Casseb; and her granddaughter, Francesca Alexandra Casseb.

Connie is survived by her daughters, Margaret Ann Casseb and Joann Casseb Hinchey and her husband, William Hinchey, MD; sons, John Bertetti Casseb, Frank James Casseb and his wife, Liliana, and Edward Solomon Casseb and his wife, Bernadette; grandchildren, John W. Hinchey, MD, and his wife, Christy, George Hinchey and his wife, Meredith, Carolyn Hinchey Shaw and her husband, Robert, Andrew Casseb, Campbell Casseb, Joey Casseb, Nicky Casseb, Liliana Casseb, Leila Casseb; great grandchildren, Addie Hinchey, Ford Hinchey, Will Hinchey, Bobby Shaw, Reeves Shaw and Liam Shaw. Connie is also survived by her sister-in-law, Eugenia Bertetti, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Sr. Patty, Jacqui, Bertha, Elizabeth, Rose, Rachel and Mary for their special care and comfort. The family would also like to acknowledge Embrace Hospice, especially Erin Bell, RN, who cared for Mom so lovingly.

Goodbye to a lovely lady and friend of more than fifty years. We shared many good times and felt we were part of the family. "Uncle George" was always in our corner and gave great advice. The Casseb family has always stood together and I hope each of the family will take pride and comfort in knowing the importance of the family bonds which George and Connie lived.
Goodbye dear lady.

My Dearest Casseb Family,
My deepest heart felt sorrow for all of you for loss of your wonderful mother. She was so gracious and endearing to all who she met and mentored in organizations (me it was St. Monica's) she will truly be missed. Now she is not alone with God at her side and walks in the valley from dust to dust until God raises all up for all eternity. God Bless all of you. Claire Rubiolo Steves

Rochelle and I send our sincere condolences to the Casseb family at this time of loss. I would see her and George at various restaurants around town at lunch and she was always so gracious and friendly. They were a beautiful couple. May she be at peace and that time will make the sadness fade and bring happy memories of her life to her family.
