Mary "Kassie" Kathleen Mallow, 89, of Mabie, WV, passed away at her home on December 6, 2022. Born on May 1, 1933, in Jenningston, WV, she was the daughter of the late Mabel Roy and Burlie Teter.
Kassie was born to be a caregiver; at age 10, she began caring for her younger siblings and learning how to cook. After marrying the love of her life, Herbert Mallow, they moved to Cleveland, OH, where she worked several different jobs in factories. Her gift of cooking continued to bless her family and the neighbors' children as she welcomed all the children in the neighborhood into her home for dinner. She enjoyed canning, gardening, flowers, sewing and baking. Kassie assisted Herbert in owning and operating Herb Mallow Builders and, later, owning and operating her own business, Sunshine Cleaning and Rentals. She was known for her famous pies, receiving several first-place ribbons in the regional area; she also donated them to numerous fundraisers and charities. Kassie never met a stranger and would do anything to help anyone, especially when it meant that she could provide a meal for them.
She is survived by seven daughters, Wenona Teter and husband Rodney of Red Creek, Brenda Cooper and husband Greg of Harman, Donna Judy and husband Bob of Harman, Amy Vandevender and husband Paul of Kerens, Trudy Sponaugle and husband Leon of Dryfork, Jessie Pastine and husband Andy of Mabie, and Christina "Tina" Chewning of Belington; a son, Herbert Mallow II and companion Dorina Bonner of Mabie; nineteen grandchildren; thirty great grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; and three siblings, David Ketterman of Dryfork, Norma Knotts of Red Creek and Doloris Brinizer and husband Brad of Eastlake, OH.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Herbert Mallow, to whom she was married on September 27, 1950, in Oakland, MD; a daughter, Audrey Veres; a grandson, Jason Mallow; two sons-in-law, Steve Veres and Robert Chewning; and seven siblings, George, Janet, Daniel II, Carol, Paul, Royce and Melvin.
