Mrs. Caspary was born Sept. 1, 1920, at Raleigh, N.C. She had been a resident of Westchester, Calif., before moving to South Lake Tahoe in 1969.

She also earned a Fellowship at Emerson College and from Bernadeen University and lectured extensively, promoting alternative health practices. She served on the parish council at St. Theresa Catholic Church and enjoyed oil painting, music and travel. She always said that she had a great life with no regrets.
Survivors include her husband of 59 years, Louis P. Caspary of South Lake Tahoe; sons, Louis F. Caspary of San Deigo, Calif., Michael V. Caspary of Reno, Nev., Patrick K.
