PRICE - Cassandra Lynne Cox Farlaino, age 57, passed away on Aug. 28, 2013 after a long struggle with Lupus.
She was born in Denver, Colo., on Nov. 5, 1955 to Robert and Constance McCoid Cox. In 1974, she graduated from Brighton High School in Salt Lake City. Married Thomas Farlaino, Jr. on Jan. 20, 1978 in Salt Lake City.
Cass worked as a real estate agent and secretary for Etzel Realty. She had various other jobs during her years in Price, but was most proud of being a wife to her husband and mom to her kids. Cass was a very sharp and whity person who did and said silly things to make people laugh. Everything she did was with someone else in mind. She had a sharp mind and whenever called upon, she had the answer. She could complete the hardest crossword puzzles and enjoyed laughing when no one else could get them right. She was a very simple person and it didn't take much to make her happy.
Cass was an amazing cook who loved nothing more than to have her family over for dinner. She loved having the family together for the holidays and was grateful when her daughter took over these traditions. She was proud of her son for having served in the Marine Corps from 2004 to 2011 and was deeply proud of his accomplishments. Cass was proud of her daughter and her accomplishments of co-owning a salon in Price. Cass appreciated the love and support she got from her husband over the last 10 years and he tried to make her life as easy as possible during her struggles.
She had a deep love of animals and nothing felt complete if she didn't have animals in her life.
Cass is survived by her husband of 35 years, Thomas Farlaino, Jr.; son, Andrew (Alida) Farlaino; daughters, Karrie (Kirk) Jaramillo; Jessie Farlaino; brothers, Chris (Beth) Cox; Geoff (Naomi) Cox; sisters, Stacey Kunz; Debbie Cox and various nieces and nephews.
Per Cassandra's wishes there will be no services. In lieu of flowers she would appreciate donations be made to local Animal Shelter. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home where friends are welcome to share memories of Cass at www.mitchellfuneralhome.net.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
