Myers on August 29, 2014 at St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in Avon. She was employed as an Occupational Therapist for the CentraCare Pediatric and Adult Rehab. Casey was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish.

Casey was described as the light of any room she walked into. With a genuine heart and a smile for everyone, she truly was an angel on earth. When Casey was not busy putting her heart into her heartfelt work, she enjoyed spending time outdoors; running, playing volleyball and more recently gardening with family. She also enjoyed finding new ways to incorporate her healthy outlook on life into spending time with family and friends. Casey cared deeply for everyone in her life, with her true passion being a wife and mother; something she excelled at every day.

Casey is survived by her husband, Matthew; son, Tyson; and beloved pet Reuben of Holdingford; parents, Jeff and Pattie Gunderson of Avon; sister, Abby (Ethan) Atkinson of Avon; brother, Justin (Tara) of Delano; grandmothers, Lucy Laudenbach of St. Joseph and Louise Gunderson of Foley; mother and father-in laws, Kevien (Sandy) Schroeder of Mountain Lake, Craig (Karrie) Myers of Jeffers; brothers-in law, Adam (Brittany) Myers of Glencoe, Tyler Myers of Missoula, Montana and Mason Myers of Jeffers; sisters-in-law, Maddie Schroeder of Mountain Lake, Mikayla and Mercedes Myers of Jeffers; nephews, Cooper Gunderson and Vincent Atkinson, Dawson, Callen and Evan Myers; godparents, Jeff and Jane Kriedeman of Trail and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
