Sarah Ligon Logue

August 26, 1927 - October 15, 2016

Sarah Ligon Logue, known fondly as “Sally,” age 89, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully, in her sleep, at home on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Her short-term memory was fading but she graphically remembered everything and everyone from her past with fondness and pleasure. In appreciation for her lifelong medical care, Sally chose to donate her body to Humanity Gifts Registry in Philadelphia for the education of future doctors.

Born in St. Petersburg, FL on August 26, 1927, She was the daughter of the late Eleanor Natalie Souders Ligon and Mulford E. Ligon. She was raised by her mother, maternal grandmother, and her Uncle Roddy. Sally graduated from St. Petersburg High School, and after completing St. Pete Junior College, she attended Northwestern University in Chicago. She later graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in French Education and attained her master’s degree in Library Science at Florida State University. She was a lifelong proud “Gator Gal.” She met her husband, Raymond, at a University of Florida church function while preparing gingerbread for an “unknown birthday recipient,” which happened to be him.

Sally worked as a librarian at Baylor University in Waco, TX, at the Elkton Public Library, Cecil Community College, and many schools in the Christina School District. She retired after 25 years of dedicated service at the Groves Adult Night School. Her passions were the written word, in all forms of publication, and helping students in need.

Sally and Raymond attended St. James and St. Thomas Episcopal Churches. She was exceptionally proud of her granddaughters, Carolyn and Andrea Kosko and Jackie Smith for their dedication and desire for higher learning and helping others.

She had a lifelong concern with animal welfare and all forms of nature. She was a competitive board game player and loved completing puzzles. Sally found great joy in perusing Facebook, especially reading the memes and cartoons. She generously donated to a number of societies for research, healthcare causes, her alma maters, and local food banks.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Raymond Lee Logue; daughters, Lucia Logue and Laurelle Logue Kosko (Wayne); granddaughters, Carolyn and Andrea Kosko and Jackie Smith; and her cousin, Ellen “Tootsie” Rodenhuis of St. Petersburg, FL and her children.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 am on Friday morning, November 18, 2016.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Sally’s memory may be made to a local public library or an animal shelter or the donor’s choosing.

8 Condolences for Sarah Ligon Logue

  • I was 10 years old when I first met Sally in the newly weds apartment in St. Petersburg Fla. For the next 60+years, I always had fun teasing her. We both enjoyed it. I think I might have been one of the few that she would let get away things she didn’t necessarily approve of.
    I hope I get to tease you on the other side too. See you later.

  • I will always remember Mrs Logue with the fondest of memories and hold those close to my heart. My deepest condolences to her husband, daughters Laurie and Lucy, and the rest of her family.

  • Praying for you and the family in the passing of your Mother.

  • Our love and prayers are with the family at this time. May the Lord bring comfort to everyone.

  • Although I did not know Ms. Lotus well I am glad I got to meet her & Mr. Loge & I am so fortunate to have had their daughter Lucy in my life. She is a treasure.

  • I met Mrs. Logue as a young girl because Lucy and I were great friends in elementary school. I remember going over to visit their home, and later, Mrs. Logue became our Girl Scout leader at Perry Point.

    I always enjoyed her wit in conversation! I’ve not seen her in many years, but through my ongoing friendship with Lucy, I’ve enjoyed keeping up with her life.

    My heartfelt love and condolences to the family, Ray, Lucy, and Laurie, as well as her three granddaughters.

  • Laurie, Wayne, Carolyn and Andrea – Our hearts go out to you during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts. Extending deepest sympathy, Fondly, Dr. Calhoon, Dr. Karian, Robin, Taylor, Peggy, Theresa, Tina, Nicole, Beth, Denise, Debbie

  • I met Sally sometime after we settled in Windy Hills in 1968. We enjoyed each other’s company, and we traveled here and there searching for her ancestors. She helped me get started looking for mine. Her research skills were impressive, and this was before we had personal computers. My deepest sympathy to all of you in your loss.
