Obituary for Constance "Connie" Bertetti Casseb

August 27, 1926 - May 13, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 93


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.
