Margaret Wellman Roberts Casey

By | Obituaries

BALLSTON SPA — Margaret Wellman Roberts Casey, 90, of Ballston Spa, went to be with The Lord on December 13.

Meg was born on September 7, 1923 to Maynard and Nellie (Mansfield) Wellman in Rome. She was the stepdaughter of Sarah (Ferguson) Wellman and grew up in Rome with a large loving family where she developed her love of camping. She was a graduate of Rome Free Academy. She married William “Bill”

Henry Roberts on February 21, 1943 and was his beloved wife for 25 years and had three loving children: Linda, Peter, and Janellen.

Her family was the most important thing to her and Meg was always there for her family and her family always came first. Meg enjoyed her time camping, volunteering in her children's activities, and raising her children. She was President of the Mother’s Club, and a Brownie Girl Scout Leader. As grandchildren were added, she embraced them and loved to spend time with them. She spent countless time with her family at her beloved Raquette Lake.

She worked at Utica State Hospital. Following Bill’s death she went back to school and went on to earn her Associates Degree at Adirondack Community College and became a Registered Nurse. She worked for many years for New York State in the Wilton Developmental Center. Nursing was her passion and expressed her joy in serving and caring for others. She worked there until she retired, but she continued her life of caring with her grandchildren.

She married Paul J. Casey on October 4, 1974 in Inlet and was his wife and companion for 22 years.

Meg was a strong determined person that met adversity head-on. She was always thoughtful, giving and caring. She embodied the principle of putting others first. Meg had a very strong faith and was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church.

Meg was pre-deceased by her two husbands, William "Bill" Roberts and Paul Casey.  She is survived by her three brothers: Maynard Wellman (Judy), Ronnie Wellman, and  Bruce Wellman (Pam) and two sisters Eileen Wellman McHale (Ken) and Marion Wellman Raines (Earl, deceased), her three children Linda Roberts Matson (Art), Peter  Roberts (Patricia), and Janellen Roberts Clark (Jeff), and her beloved grandchildren Arthur Matson IV, Christine (Matson) Strack, Emily (Clark) McPhee, Sarah (Clark)Quarles, William Clark, Deanna Roberts, Catherine Clark and Jennifer Roberts.

She was also blessed with nine great-grandchildren and was awaiting the birth of her 10th. She is also survived by dear friends including her closest friend Barbara Sorrell.

A funeral service will be held in honor of Margaret at 11 a.m. on December 18 at Compassionate Funeral Care. Friends and family may call from 10-11 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.  Interment will be at Sauquoit Valley Cemetery in Sauquoit in the spring.
