Gorecki, Cassie M.
(nee Franklin) passed away peacefully, at the age of 35, on Dec. 27, 2018, after a long ardent battle against Chondrosarcoma. She was born April 21, 1983, in St. Louis, MO, to Ken and Mary Franklin. She found her best friend and devoted love Adam and they were married in 2011. Together in 2017, they welcomed their loving and rowdy son Augustus, affectionately nicknamed “Gus”. A real-life Wonder Woman, Cassie spent her career as a physical education teacher for the St. Louis public schools instilling her joy and passion for exercise and sports in so many children.
