Sarah Satterfield

Sarah Ruth Satterfield, 91, of Fairmont, passed from this life Sunday (Nov. 10, 2013) at Ruby Memorial Hospital after a brief illness.

She was born in Morgantown on Oct. 21, 1922, a daughter of the late Edward G. and Rachel Leah Rollins Nigh.

Sarah was a Christian and a member of Grace Lutheran Church. She retired as a beautician from Winnies Beauty Shop several years ago. She enjoyed reading, sewing and especially helping others.

Mrs. Satterfield is survived by one granddaughter, Abby Williams and her husband Walter of Columbus, Ga.; three great-grandsons, Nick and Robby Applewhite and Alex VanSickle; four nieces, Linda (Thomas) Stewart of Bristol, Va., Becky Prosser of Melbourne, Fla., Johanna (Gregory) Beemer of Grand Island, Fla., and Nancy (Richard) Migacz of Littleton, Colo.; three nephews, Richard (Mary Ellen) Nigh of Melbourne, Fla., Ronald Busby of Fairmont and Tom Rexroad of Centennial, Colo.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Robert R. Satterfield, on Feb. 14, 2004; her son, David A. Satterfield; four brothers, Richard E., Galen R. and Jimmy Nigh and Harry E. Thomas; and three sisters, Bettie Jungst, Katherine Busby and Mary I. Hoult. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

She will lie in repose at Grace Lutheran Church from 10-10:30 a.m. today, at which time her funeral service will begin with Pastor Matt Holbert officiating. Interment will follow at Grandview Memorial Gardens.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
