Lucille (Muffler) Cassingham
Lucille M. Cassingham of Elgin, IL (formerly of Joliet), died Monday January 25th at Sherman Hospital in Elgin at the age of 90. Mrs. Cassingham was born in Seneca, Illinois on September 9, 1925, the daughter of Herbert and Mary Muffler, and she grew up in the Morris area.

For almost 50 years, they lived in Joliet where they raised six children and were active members of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. In 2001, Lucille and Jacque moved to Elgin to be closer to their two daughters and they joined St. Thomas More Catholic Church.
