Anna Frances Cason, 83, of Berry, KY, passed away on Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at her home. Born on August 23, 1937 in Harrison County, KY , she was a daughter of the late Charles Marion and Martha Pauline Thompson Humphries.
She was a lifelong member of the Berry Christian Church, where she shared her gifts and talents as a musician, playing the organ for 67 years. She was also a Sunday School and Vacation Bible School teacher and gladly volunteered for all church activities. Anna had a gracious and loving way of making everyone feel welcome.
Whether she was with her family, her friends and church family, or helping at Woodhead Funeral Home, she had a great gift of compassionately reaching out to help others. Anna was a beautician, and when her patrons were not able to come to her shop, she went to them, wherever they were.
On October 4, 1956, she married Coolidge Cason, and her dear husband of 52 years preceded her in death on September 1, 2008. They were part of many Berry community events over the years: revivals, festivals and all kinds of celebrations. Whether it was setting up, cleaning up, working a shift, giving someone a ride, sharing a hymn, delivering a home-baked meal or treat, they always sought out ways to support and encourage others.
