Our larger than life daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend, Cortney “Grayson” Case, left this world unexpectedly, at the young age of 18, on April 27, 2021. Our hearts are shattered.
Grayson was immediately a shining light in our lives. She was born in Wausau, Wisconsin on August 1, 2002 to Troy Gehoski and Constance Case. She grew up in the Wausau area and graduated a year early from DC Everest High School in 2019. She enjoyed doing what most 18-year-old girls do- posting memes on Facebook, doing makeup, skateboarding, being with friends, and taking risks.
Grayson will be remembered for her wit and humor as well as her big heart and charm. She was vivacious, loving, fiercely loyal and full of energy. She was a lover of music of all genres and was a talented ukulele player. Aspiring to be a veterinarian one day, she had a pure and innocent love for all animals- especially her cats. The relationship she had with her brother Conor, was unlike any other. She was so smart and so talented. She loved art and was beginning to sell her work on Facebook and to friends. She was so versatile and had so much talent and love to bring to the world. Grayson’s smile was infectious and will remain in our hearts and our thoughts as we navigate through this difficult time.
Grayson leaves behind her parents Constance Case and Troy Gehoski (Grayson’s beloved feline companions Angus and Tinkers); brother Conor Gehoski; sister Casey Marie; grandparents Marcia and Mark Remondini and Diane and Will Gehoski; uncles Jeremy (Kelly) Remondini and Josh (Susan) Gehoski; aunt Flora Case (fiancé Jake Fath); cousins Kirsti Case, Michael Dauer, Cole and Amber Schlinker, Beckett and Kinzley Remondini, and Isabella, Parker, Adeline, and Brady Gehoski; godmother Sue (Ken) Jenkins; close friends Jerome Literski (dog Shelby and cat Tiger), A.J. Literski, Ashley Krautkramer (dog Lena), Elly Grace, Brandon, Sully, Michael, Dallas, Micky, and Bridget Daniels; extended family and countless friends.
Grayson’s grandparents Beatrice Case, Louis Case and Grandpa Dick as well as her aunt Penny Schlinker welcomed her into their arms when she joined them in Heaven.
Friends and family are invited to a visitation on Friday, May 7, 2021 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Brainard Funeral Home’s Everest Chapel, 5712 Memorial Court, Weston, Wisconsin 54476. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Marathon County Humane Society.
