Cassandra Lee Childs, age 40, was born September 8, 1981, in Waltham, Massachusetts to Bradley G. Childs and Ramona K. Iverson Parker. She found eternal peace Wednesday, May 25, 2022, after fighting a courageous 4-year bout with breast cancer.
She grew up in both Wrentham, Massachusetts and Harrah, Oklahoma. Cassie graduated from Harrah High School with the class of 1999 and excelled in basketball. She received a full basketball scholarship to Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
In 2001, Cassie met the love of her life, Guitarist and Recording Artist Greg Howe. She worked the majority of her life managing all aspects of Greg’s musical career. She worked for UNLV Health OB/GYN High Risk Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic for many years in Las Vegas, NV.
Cassie was a gorgeous person both inside and out. She had a beautiful smile accompanied by a bright and sunny disposition. Her life was far too short, but she lived it with all her heart. Her vibrant, engaging and transparent spirit touched the lives of everyone who knew her in the most uplifting manner. Seeing the very best in others was an inherent quality of her beautiful nature. Cassie adored animals of all kinds and embraced her pets as if they were her children. She loved old movies, sports – particularly her New England Patriots and painting figurines. She truly enjoyed Sunday football.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Mona A. McArdle Iverson, Fred & Carol Childs and Uncle Billy Childs.
She is survived by her fiancé, Greg Howe; father, Bradley Childs & wife Anne; mother, Ramona Parker & husband Jeff; her sister Kelly Childs & fiancé J.D. Rettman; brother Rick Childs & wife Christine; Grandmother Cecile Beane and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Cassie made this world a better place and will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Thank you, Cassie for bringing your love into our lives.
