Jeannie Casanova, 37, of Bolivia, went peacefully to her rest at her home Tuesday, May 20, 2014.
She was born May 6, 1977, in Wilmington and lived in Leland and southern Brunswick County. Though she battled multiple sclerosis and became wheelchair-bound, her spirits stayed high. She never met a stranger, often giving a listening ear and helping hand to those in need, sharing her laughter and love of dance with everyone, and was very close to her beloved grandmother, Ruth.
Jeannie was preceded in death by her father, Joseph Gayhardt.
She is survived by her husband, Carlos Casanova; her daughter, Stephanie Woodall Miller with her husband, Brandon Miller; her son, David Casanova; her mother and stepfather, Charlene and Larry Vaughn; her sister, Jennifer Woodall Jackson; her stepbrother, David Vaughn; and her siblings, Eddie Woodall, Misty Garriss, Adam Gayhardt and Stevie Gayhardt; as well as many loving aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins who miss her greatly.
A celebration of her life was at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral and Cremation Service, 1411 North Howe Street, Southport.
