Marjorie Rose Sapanas Obituary Photo .jpeg

Marjorie Rose Sapanas

May 15, 2024     Wardsville, Missouri

Mrs. Margie Rose Sapanas passed away at the age of 75 on May 15th, 2024. She was born on November 15th, 1948, the only child of Margaret and Hilbert Fischer of Olean, Missouri.

 

Margie raised two daughters, Cassy Allee and Tanya Lindsey, of Jefferson City, MO. She was a compass to her daughters, and they will be lost without her.

 

Margie was preceded in death by her husband, Steve Sapanas, with whom she shared 25 years, a testament of love so strong that not even death could touch. The two became one through marriage on October 6th, 1990 in Bennet Springs, Missouri.

 

After retiring from the General Councils Office with the State of Missouri, Margie fulfilled a lifelong dream to open her own store Uniquely Rose Boutique in downtown Jefferson City.

 

Kids and adults who visited her “tiny but mighty”store were always greeted with a smile, a Hershey Kiss and a hole in the floor to drop their wrapper and wish in. She individually wrote each price tag until the day her store closed in 2023.

 

Margie was a devout Christian who attended Concord Baptist Church.

 

She was known around Jefferson City by her “BEAPPY” license plate. She embodied a contagious happiness in all that she did and always made sure to leave people better than she found them.

 

Margie enjoyed listening to Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, and whatever Disney songs her grandchildren were obsessed with. She enjoyed sunrises from her back porch-swing, Bible study with her daughters, playing cards with friends and making new ones everywhere she went.

 

Margie’s world revolved around her family who she loved immensely. When she wasn’t running her store, she was fulfilling the role of “Grandma Rose” fruitfully. Margie was devoted to her family and instilled enough love and memories in each of them to last a lifetime.

 

Survivors include her two loving daughters, Cassy Allee and Tanya (Shawn) Lindsey and three loving stepsons, Steve (Leslie) Sapanas, Kelly (Candi) Sapanas and William “BJ” Sapanas. Grandchildren include Mashaelyn Sapanas, Remney Rose (Dalton) Creach, Gage Bryant, Zion Soval, Zoey Rose Soval, Kael Bryant, Keeven Soval and four great grandchildren Micah, Clyde, Atlas,and Raelynn Rose.

 

To the world she was a friend and to her family she was the world. Margie will be missed endlessly by those who were blessed enough to have known her.

 

Graveside services will be 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, 2024 at Spring Garden Cemetery with Pastor Joshua Hartley officiating. 

 

Memorials are suggested to the Margie and Steve Sapanas Family Memorial Fund or Spring Garden Cemetery in care of the funeral home.


Arrangements for Mrs. Sapanas are under the direction of TYLER M. WOODS FUNERAL DIRECTOR, 611 E. Capitol Ave. Jefferson City, Missouri 65101. (573) 636-2424.

Mr. Albert Bernard Cassler, 73, of Barnett, MO, passed away, comforted by family, Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at SSM St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City. He fought a courageous battle after being diagnosed with metastasized prostate cancer in 2016. Albert was born August 2, 1950 in St. Louis, MO.

He was a unique character that one couldn't easily forget. He was engaging and loved to talk, particularly when sharing his knowledge and wisdom. He questioned everything and loved learning. He was ahead of his time in ideas. He enjoyed following current events, politics, watching sci-fi, being outdoors and singing and dancing even if he didn't know all the words or was out of tune or couldn't keep a rhythm. His passion was tinkering on vehicles especially with his loved ones. He taught his children to stand up for themselves and others; and that they could be anything they wanted to be but emphasized the importance of being themselves. He had a tender heart. He was kind to strangers. He was a forgiving man. He loved his family unconditionally. And always believed he could "Let go and let God". 

 

 He is survived by three children: Rosetta (Jon Wilkins) Cipponeri of Union, MO, Theresa (Ace) Fouts of Belleville, IL; Alex Cassler of Barnett, MO; six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
