ROCK SPRINGS – Josephine Ann Case, 83, a longtime resident of Rock Springs, Wyoming, but forever a faithful native of Superior passed from this life on Monday, February 2, 2015. Jo, as her friends called her, was born and raised in Superior, Wyoming.
Jo was a cheerleader at and graduated from Superior High School, always proud to be a Dragon. She married the love of her life, John Angelo Case, on November 14, 1954 in Superior, Wyoming and moved to Rock Springs where they then resided.
Jo was a member of the Holy Spirit Catholic Community. She spent her time as a loving mother and wife who worked from before dawn until after her family went to sleep, a hard working type that many now refer to as “they don’t make them like that anymore,” and made the best potica in town. Jo also loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, attending all their concerts, games, and events.
Jo loved to speak Slovenian, thoroughly enjoyed attending the Superior All-Class Reunions, and always shared stories about her childhood in Superior at the “D” Camp across from the hoist house and all the wonderful people in that town. She was an avid fan of whatever sports team her son Stephen was playing on as well as all the teams her husband John followed. She liked to play cards and board games
