Sara Jo Morgan

Sara Jo Morgan, 79, of Leonardtown peacefully passed away on February 11, 2021 at St. Mary’s Hospital with her daughter and granddaughter by her side. Born to Joseph and Sarah Dumont on April 29, 1941, she was their middle child.   She grew up in Point Marion, PA and had what her daughter called, “It’s a Wonderful Life” childhood. She was a majorette for her High School and she was an avid roller skater. She was amazing to watch dancing on roller skates. If her family had not moved to St. Mary’s County when she was 20, I believe her interest was hopefully to pursue a professional skating career.

She was part of the insurance industry for 30+ years. She worked for Waring Ahern Insurance for almost 20 years and then set up an office out of her home for the remainder of her years as an agent. She also managed the 235 Diner for several years. She played many sports around the county for many years. She played with the Tricoda Darts and was president of the league for a short time and Women’s Horseshoe Leagues. Her true passion was playing on the North Shuffleboard League. She was very competitive in all sports and gave it her all, which she has many trophies to show for it. The teams she played with usually won the Championship games. She was a BIG fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Her apartment is full of Steeler memorabilia.

She is survived by her daughter Georgie Marquess and son Joe Alvey. She has four (4) grandchildren, Judy Smith (Travis), Sara Marquess-LaQuay (Robert), Evan Alvey, and Mason Alvey. She has six (6) great-grandsons, Dashawn Smith, Marquess Smith, Deandre Smith, Kenyon LaQuay, Kameron LaQuay, and Karter LaQuay. She and her great-grandson Deandre had a very special bond and he was so protective of her, she will now be his guardian angel.

She has a sister, Pauline Dumont who resides in California. She has many special friends at Newtowne Village Apartments and her care-taker Penny Lambert who she cherished and missed greatly. The “gals” at Newtowne dubbed her “The Princess” and it really tickled her.

She is preceded in death by her parents and sister, Mary Evans.

The family will receive friends at Brinsfield Funeral Home in Leonardtown, MD for a viewing on February 23, 2021 at 2:30.

Donations can be made in her name to the Leonardtown Rescue Squad. They always took very good care of her on calls when they had to assist her.
