Betty Jo Stage Sargee
May 4, 1930 — July 25, 2014
Betty Jo Stage Sargee, 84, a resident of Morgan City, passed away Friday, July 25, 2014, at Teche Regional Medical Center.
Betty was born on May 4, 1930, in Atwood, Kansas, the daughter of Perl C. and Marjorie Dean Stage.
Betty loved planting flowers, embroidering and doing her puzzle books. She liked to play games especially a game call Wahoo, which she would sit for hours at a time and play. She enjoyed listening to country and gospel music. Betty loved to watch football especially any game where the Pittsburgh Steelers were playing as Terry Bradshaw was her quarterback. The family knew to never call Betty on Sunday because she wouldn’t answer the phone when the football game was on. Of all the things Betty did in her life the thing she enjoyed the most was spending time with her family.
