Julie L. Caster, of Freeport, L.I., a teacher and a former Buffalo resident, died Monday (Oct. 13, 2003) in an auto accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Philadelphia. She was 27.

Born in Buffalo, she attended Campus West Elementary School and was a member of University Presbyterian Church. She attended Peabody High School in Pittsburgh, where her father had gone to study to become a Presbyterian minister, and graduated in 1993 from Allen Park High School in Allen Park, Mich.

Ms. Caster earned a bachelor's degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa., and taught English in the Peace Corps in Burkina Faso in Africa.

After leaving the Peace Corps because of illness, she rejoined her parents in Ohio and worked as a youth director for a Presbyterian church in Hopewell, Pa.

A resident of Freeport for the past three years, she had been youth director of First Presbyterian Church of Freeport and had completed her master's degree at State University at Stony Brook. She began working last month as a teacher in Philip Schuyler Middle School in Brooklyn.

Survivors include her parents, the Rev. John and Lynda of Matawan, N.J.; a brother, Donald of Huntington, W.Va.; and a close friend, Brian Del Bianco of Pittsburgh.

Services were held today in First Presbyterian Church, Matawan. Burial was in Shoreland Memorial Gardens, Hazlet, N.J.
