Mary, from Cassidy’s, has Passed

Mary Elam has passed.

Her passing and our loss comes as a result of an aneurysm one week ago Friday, and her time of departure was 11:52 p.m. on Sunday February 3rd.

Mary was born in LA, and worked at Cassidy’s for 38 years through two different management teams and was known to as a fiercely loyal woman. She is survived by her loving husband, her brother, and her nieces and nephews.

Because she has passed at such an unexpected age and so suddenly, this was a true shock to everybody. The family has asked for support during this unexpected hardship to deal with final expenses and everything that comes with such a trying time.  Please consider a donation at

Further details on memorial events will be announced through the Cassidy’s Facebook page and other channels.

The family has asked for privacy during this time, but did want to get the word out to any friends or family who have not already been notified.
