Obituary for Sharon Kay Carriger

Sharon Kay Carriger

"Kay,” the daughter of the late Fred and Nellie (Rhoades) Holt, was born October 6, 1944 in Mountain Grove, Missouri.

As a young woman, Kay moved to the St. Robert area in the early 60’s where she worked at Jodie’s Café for several years. During that time she met her future husband, Elbert Carriger, and eventually had two sons, Jeff and Jesse. Kay loved her boys and enjoyed being a devoted mom each and every day.

Kay, along with Elbert, founded St. Robert Glass Co, Inc in the mid 60’s. She worked tirelessly to build and expand a successful and prosperous family business over the last 45 + years. The glass shop was her legacy and it continues to run today by her eldest Son.

She loved the City of St. Robert and called this her home. She was elected the first woman alderman in 1979, and served again on the city council in 2002. As a business owner and politically active individual, she played a part in helping to make the City of St. Robert what it has become today.

Kay loved to garden and had the prettiest yard in the neighborhood. She also enjoyed collecting antique glass, playing cards, laughing and making others laugh with her. Her family was a very important part of her life.

Sharon passed away at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, June 18, 2005 in her home at the age of 60 years, 8 months and 12 days. Her family and many members of this community will miss her greatly.

Sharon will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered by two sons: Jeffrey Carriger and his wife, Victoria of Waynesville, Missouri; and Jesse Carriger of Chicago, Illinois; five sisters: Velma Hicks and Thelma Emery, both of Mtn. Grove, Missouri, Fern Melton of Macomb, Missouri, Margaret Tanner of Swedeborg, Missouri and Donna Whitson of Dixon, Missouri; three brothers: Tom and Danny Holt, both of Mtn. Grove, Missouri and Junior Holt of Seligman, Missouri; six grandchildren; several other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at 10:00 A.M. Wednesday, June 22, 2005 in the Waynesville Memorial Chapel with Pastor Keith Carnahan officiating. Soloist Anda Zeiger was accompanied by Sharon’s daughter-in-law, Victoria Carriger as she sang "The Old Rugged Cross”. Anda also sang "Wind Beneath My Wings”.
