Winnebago - Caryn Julianne Casey, 21, of Winnebago, died Wednesday, December 26, 2007, from injuries sustained in a car accident. Born June 5, 1986, in Rahway, New Jersey, the daughter of Matthew Casey and Teresa and Michael Schneider. She graduated from Winnebago High School in 2004 and was a senior at Illinois State University, majoring in sociology for the purpose of helping children in crises situations. Caryn was a volunteer with PATH, a crises intervention agency, at the university. A huge Disney fan, she loved "The Little Mermaid". Caryn was a pug lover and promoted her own slogan, "Pugs not Drugs". Fun and out-going, she never failed to leave a smile on anyone's face.
