As we bid farewell to our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister and friend, we also want to pay tribute to this lady of gentle strength and quiet dignity.
Sallie R. Bargo was summoned home to her eternal residence making her transition on April 11, 2021.
On October 19, 1931 Sallie was born in New Gulf, Texas. After her formative years she attended God’s Bible College in Cincinnati, Ohio where she met and married Herbert (Herb) Bargo and began their ministry. Eventually they made their home in Texas where they settled with their children Steve and Janet+. They moved to Laredo in 1967, adopted a baby boy Robert David (Bobby+), making their family complete and never left.
While Herb pursued business and his work in the mission field in his beloved Mexico, Sallie joined him when possible choosing to stay home to raise the children and would later go on to become active in the community.
She was the originator of the MHMR Volunteers and member of the Volunteer Council. She was a Life Member of the Auxiliary at Mercy Hospital and a member of The Women’s City Club. Sallie and Herb enjoyed citywide relationships with Laredo pastors of many stripes and priests who were often part of their work in Mexico but Sallie made her church home First Assembly of God where her friends in her Bible study became nearly inseparable spanning the rest of their lives.
But to those closest to her, she was known for her generosity of spirit, always ready and willing to help family and friends when needed. She will be forever missed by those whose life she graced.
Sallie is survived by her son Steve, and in-loves Gayle, Kenny and Lori. Her grandchildren Branndon Bargo (Taylar); Hilary Miles (Chad); and Greg Bargo (Jessica). Justin Martin (Christina); Kristina Martin; and Nicholas Martin (Sarah). Great grandchildren Legacy and Larabea Lowenberg (Heather+). Ainsley, Finley, and Beckett Miles (Hilary). Atlas, Avonlea, and Emmy Bargo (Greg). Aiden, J.J., and Catalina Martin (Justin). Lelia Martin (Nicholas).
Also surviving Sallie are three brothers, three sisters and jillion’s of cousins, nieces, nephews and relatives including the Bargo side as well.
Sallie was preceded in death by her husband Herb, her daughter Janet, her brother David Pimentel, her son Bobby and her granddaughter Heather.
The family also wishes to extend their everlasting gratitude to Sallie’s principal caregiver Amalia, her frequent visitors, and everyone at Altus Hospice who were entrusted with her care. God bless you all.
