Obituary for Edith Kase

Edith Kase
On January 5, 2017. A lifelong learner, Edith could predictably be found out on her porch with a bowl of ice cream, reading everything she could find. She was one the few women of her generation to get a college education, taking classes at MCC while single-handedly raising a family and working full-time. After 35 years in the beauty industry at Sibley, Lindsey & Carr, she decided that retirement was the perfect opportunity to start a new career in real estate. At 70 years young, she became an associate broker at Nothnagle Realtors, Webster Office, working 7 days a week at the job she loved. Over the next 17 years there, the family that she so cherished, and loved her dearly, grew to include co-workers, clients, and countless people from the community.

Predeceased by her husband, Chester Kase and brother, Richard Kirkingburg. She is survived by her daughter, Karen Kase-McLaren; grandchildren, Nicole and Matthew McLaren; sister, Nancy Leitner.

Services were held privately at the Interfaith Chapel, University of Rochester.
