Kasey Martinez was born on March 01, 1961 in Redding, CA to Horner Cline and Leila Frazier and has been sharing her heart with others ever since. She grew up in Central Valley where she excelled through school, always surrounded by friends, and graduated at the top of her class.
In 1981, she got married to Jose “Meche” Martinez. They “later moved to the small town of Susanville, CA where they would begin a family. On October 23, 1987, Kasey gave birth to her daughter Kassandra. A year later on October 26, 1988, they welcomed into the world their son Juan.
Kasey was always known for being a caring and unselfish person who dedicated her life to her family, home, and hard work ethics. In 1995, she started her career at High Desert State Prison where she would continue working for almost two decades. Her interests and hobbies were many but mostly her family, animals, flowers and gardening. She found peace and joy raising and growing all things beautiful. Above all, she found pride in her home and the family that she had always wanted. She lived her life for her children always thinking about them before herself by making sure they lived a joyous and full life. This couldn’t be more evident than during the Christmas season. Her house would have no less than four different themed Christmas trees and more snowmen, bears and lights than anyone one person could count.
In 2008 she was overjoyed when she learned that she had become a Grandmother and then again in 2010. They were the light in her eyes even during her hard times and spoiled them like no one ever could.
In addition to her biological children, she opened her home and her heart to countless others that she treated as her own, in the end giving her the large family she always dreamed of.
Kasey is survived by her two brothers Ken and Kevin Cline, Husband Meche Martinez, Daughter Kassandra Moore, Son Juan “Mike” Martinez and Grandsons Austin and Dillon Moore. Kasey was 53 when she went to be with God on April 12, 2014.
