She was born on May 31, 1989, in Ironwood. She is the daughter of Cynthia Gibbs and Jeff Erickson. She graduated from Luther L. Wright High School in 2009.

Cassie enjoyed and loved many things in life including arts and crafts, cooking, camping, karaoke and various other interests. She loved going to, and participating in, renaissance fairs with Lawrence. Her biggest passion was taking care of her "littles" as she called the children she took care of throughout her life. She was a mentor and mediator to family and friends whenever she was needed. Her creative spirit knew no bounds.

She is also survived by her "littles," Garrett, Hailey, Jacob and Laura; and many close friends that called our Cassie family.

She is preceded in death by her maternal great-grandmother, Bertha Thompson; a grandfather, Kaarlo Niemi; and father-in-law, Joseph Brozzo.

Cassandra was a special kind of angel that touched so many hearts and lives. We all loved her and will miss her dearly.
