Mary DeCasper Memorial Fund


Mary DeCasper, a truly gifted and talented teacher for over 25 years, shared her love of reading with generations of students at Fort McCoy School in Ocala/Marion County, FL. Sadly, her family, friends and beloved students lost her this past September. In keeping her legacy alive, her family and friends have established a memorial fund to share her gift of reading with future generations of Ft. McCoy students.

This memorial fund will enable the creation of “Ms. DeCasper’s Reading Den" - a warm, cozy and inviting reading place for students stocked with special well-loved books to foster the students' own love of reading just as Ms. DeCasper did. Our bookshelves in the “Den” will be re-stocked annually with exciting new titles. And finally, funds will be dedicated to the purchase of additional books so that each student may take home a book of their own given to them in Mary's name.

A book is a window that can never be closed. Your imagination will see something new each time you look. Enjoy forever as you grow as your books will grow with you. Thank your Ms. DeCasper for showing you the world.
