Betty Sturgeon, 88

ROGERS – Betty Sturgeon, of Dutchtown School Road, passed away Sunday evening, April 5, 2020, at her home following a lengthy illness. She was 88.

She was also preceded in death by three grandchildren, Nichole Sturgeon, Jamie Frederick and an infant granddaughter, two great-grandsons, Brandon Wareham and Kage Sturgeon, three sisters, Gertrude Givens, Leona Sellers and Wilma Graham, and two brothers, Gail Sprouse and Jack Sprouse.

Surviving are two daughters, Billie Rae Fazenbaker of West Virginia and Jody Edwards and her husband, John, of Columbiana, and five sons, Eddie Sturgeon of Rogers, Ricky Sturgeon and his wife, Jackie, of Simpsonville, South Carolina, James Sturgeon and his wife, Lisa, of Hanoverton, Yancy Sturgeon and his companion, Lisa, of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, and Dana Sturgeon and his wife, Gina, of Lisbon.
