Althea Sappington

September 29, 1941 — March 30, 2022

Althea Lamb Sasher Sappington, 80 years young, of Phenix City, AL died peacefully at her home on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.

Mrs. Sappington was born September 29, 1941 in Pottsville, PA daughter of the late Norman Charles Lamb and Violet May Liesee Lamb. She was a volunteer for many years with the EMT’s when she lived in New Jersey. Mrs. Sappington also enjoyed driving a school bus because she was able to interact with the children. Ms. Althea was also known and as the “neighborhood mom” when her children were younger.  She lit up a room when she entered as she loved to be around others. Ms. Althea was also very sensitive to the needs of others, often intentionally altering her plans to include those who were less involved. Mrs. Sappington watched or listened to various Christian ministries such as Joyce Myers and Arnold Murphy. Favorite past times included working in the yard, gardening and keeping her home beautiful for her family.  She will be missed as we continue our daily routine, but we will cherish her memories in our hearts.

Mrs. Sappington was preceded in death by her parents and the father of her children, David Sasher.

Survivors include her husband of 35 years, James Sappington, Phenix City, AL; three daughters, Althea Sanders (Jeff), Susan Cook (Brian) and Bonnie Sasher; one son, David Sasher, Jr.; eight grandchildren, Lauren, Rachael, Michael, Julia, Allison, Emily, Matthew and Joshua; four great-grandchildren, Benjamin, Noah, Abigail and Delanie; several nieces, nephews and friends.
