Margret Isza Sajgo Passed Away Last Week She Was 93

People will say "she lived a full life" its seldom true but at least it is polite.

The View From The 4th Pew of the DCPC Chapel
Margaret Sajgo is an exception, she did indeed live a full life. Cedar Post stumbled across her obituary last week not entirely by accident:

Margaret Isza Sajgo, 93 of Charlotte, N. C., passed away on December 2, 2018, at Presbyterian Hospital (Novant Health Services) in hospice surrounded by her family. Margaret was married to Ferenc Frank Sajgo, who passed away in Charlotte on July 1, 2007. She is survived by her daughters Gloria M. Sajgo (and her partner Annette Snapp); and Christina Sajgo McCormick (and her husband Bill McCormick); grandchildren Melissa Katherine Plummer and Matthew Jared Plummer (and his partner Lusamba Katende). Bernadette Moultrie was her friend and caregiver. The family thanks Doctors Making House Calls - especially Gabriel Rocha PA--for their service and dedication and Dr. William Porter and his staff at Novant Health for their support and help.

Margaret was born on December 20, 1924 in Vamospercs, Hungary to the late Arpad Isza and Julianna Deak Isza. She was the second oldest; her three sisters were the late: Julianna Isza Czegeny, Ilona Isza Olah, and Magdolna Isza Szincsak. Margaret grew up Hungary spending her childhood in Hajduboszormeny and many of her teenage years in Budapest, where she and Frank met. Later she also lived in Basel, Switzerland.

In 1950 she moved to Argentina to marry Frank, her childhood sweetheart and as she liked to say the only boyfriend she ever had. They were married in Buenos Aires in July 1950. Frank was a research chemist. In 1966 he moved to Charlotte to work for what is now the Clariant Corp (Formerly Sandoz) in Mount Holly. Margaret and her daughters followed in 1967.

Margaret was a life long Reformed Christian who encouraged her family by quoting "Fear not; believe only" (Luke 8:50) and advised the Bible should be read cover to cover "at least once". She listened to the weekly services from the Davidson College Presbyterian Church (DCPC) and enthusiastically participated by wishing "peace be with you" to anyone visiting with her at that time.

Margaret admired beautiful clothing and worked as a custom seamstress until her daughters were born. Later when living in Charlotte she studied oil painting and became a prolific painter of landscapes and scenes inspired by her childhood in Hajduboszormeny. After she lost her sight in 2008, she gracefully transitioned to becoming an avid listener of WDAV, the classical public radio station at Davidson College.

A Memorial Service was held at the Davidson College Presbyterian Church 100 North Main St Davidson NC 28036 at 5 p.m. on December 8, 2018.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to DCPC P.O. Box 337, Davidson NC 28036 704-892-5641 or to WDAV 89.9 Davidson College Box 8900 Davidson NC 28035.

A full life indeed. But here's where it gets interesting, you see... you can and she couldn't. You can walk and she couldn't. She wasn't able to attend church but you could. So every Sunday at 11 AM Margret Sajgo would listen to WDAV's broadcast of the Davidson College Presbyterian Church Sunday Service.

When they passed the collection plate, she was there at home sealing an envelope. When members joyfully began greeting one and other in church, she would great those near her as well. She was as much a member of DCPC as those in attendance every Sunday.

And from this her daughter was inspired by her mother's faith and strength. During the brief eulogy she said her mother's faith made her mother stronger. She had lost her ability to walk but somehow she became stronger and when she lost her sight something that would put most of us to the depths of depression she became stronger still. Those who knew Margaret, understood it was her faith and it was God who gave her strength, because the less she had, the more room there was for God in her life.

If you ever asked yourself who in the world listens to church on the radio, well there's your answer. Margret Isza Sajgo listens and so do countless others. And some might wonder does this radio ministry serve a purpose or do any good? Clearly the answer is yes.

So it was indeed fitting that Davidson College Presbyterian Church Pastor Scott Kenefake presided at the memorial service for Margret Isza Sajgo in a church she never had the joy of visiting.

And as I sat there in the small chapel sheltered from the cold of an approaching winter storm there was the joy of a life well lived to be celebrated. The turn out was small nearly 20 people if you included the church staff and the deceased. But that was ok, because even with all the empty pews it was a full house. Full of joy and life and full of God's Love.

Cedar Bonus: Surprisingly a lot of people listen to WDAV in fact in 2016 it was ranked the number one classical music station nationally.

I heard that Susan MANassah was the snitch that dimed out Gary McFadden about his office supplies. She was gunning for him all along because he was a better detective than her. Her days are numbered as a white person at CMPD, anyways.

CMPD=BLM 4 LIFE

This girl was a reserve officer for heaven's sake!! They rehired her and she is getting the nod over some of us! Cedar whats your thoughts?

Response to last 5 comments:

In my 24 years, these are the two biggest hoes on this department, with Veronica Brown as a runner up. Whether it is Cecil sliding in for a BJ, or Aquino and Stuk Stuk getting plowed in the cruiser. This place has never ceased to amaze me. We are talking about a few cases of mental health and girls with daddy issues.

Law Enforcement is not new to its fair share of issues involving women. Most women in law enforcement fuck their coworkers at some point of their careers. Being a known hoe is something to expect at many police departments. I think the Aquino situation is sad. She is such a lost soul. I heard she has some PTSD issues that lead to her making questionable decisions, which many police take advantage of. Its sickening what Tinsley did on the job, but he is a blue falcon that CMPD was watching for years. They finally got their man.

The Stukey situation is a whole different situation. She got preganant by some ghetto guy that was just hit n quitin it. She has her fair share of taggers that have lived to tell the tale, and its not a good one. Very sloppy. There are many pathetic dudes that just want some companionship at CMPD, so there will always be a line of men ready for Aquino, Brown, and Stuk Stuk. Even a quick BJ is understandable in this line of work, I am not gonna lie.

Trust a man with your life, but not your wife. Watch your 6, and stay strong brothers. I am still grateful to serve my people and lead my team. Semper Fi!

Why is there no “uproar” or “protests” over the man that was just killed by a CMPD Officer? Why is no one saying he was holding a book instead of a deadly weapon? Just saying. It was a righteous shoot for sure but not greeting the same scrutiny as past incidents. Very biased reporting by the media since this isn’t a “story” to ignite viewers.
