Sarabeth Ann Repp, 68, of Farrar, Mo., went to be with the Lord on Friday, July 31, 2020, at her home surrounded by her family. Born on January 23, 1952, in Ironton, Mo., “Beth” was the daughter of Otto Leonard and Anna Mae Tinsley Simmons. Before marrying Gary Charles Repp on January 25, 1970, she attended Fredericktown High School.
Her true joys in life were making memories with her family. She was a loving wife of 50 years. She and Gary traveled the world. Some of the places included Germany, Alaska, and Hawaii. But her favorite place was the mountains of Colorado.
She was a tender, loving Mother; a giving Granny; a devoted teacher of 30 years. Her teaching journey began with 4th grade in Marquand, and the beginning was her most fond years. Many hearts have been touched throughout the years. She retired from Altenburg Public School.
She was a Sunday school teacher at Oak Ridge Baptist Church in the late 70’s. She faithfully served the Lord at Sedgewickville Baptist Church. She loved when her family would join her, filling a pew and overflowing into two.
Family get-togethers were a time to celebrate love and togetherness, whether a pot roast, “Levi’s cream peas”, or roasting marshmallows to burnt crisp around a fire, and sharing smiles as childhood memories were swapped.
She endured this journey on Earth with the strength of the Lord. She was diagnosed with cancer in October of 2019, finding that the cancer had progressed in June. With the compassionate hands of SouthEast Hospice, she was able to be home the final weeks surrounded by family and friends.
Loving survivors include her husband, Gary Repp of Farrar, Mo.; three children: Melisa of Frohna, Levi of Altenburg, and Amanda (Keith) of Altenburg; 10 grandchildren: Elizabeth, John, Brent, Dessaray, Paul, Coltin, Kris, Destiny, Shanon, and Dakota; and seven great-grandbabies: Kiarra, Emmalynn, Bella, Gigi, Sophia, Christopher, and Mary.
She was preceded in death by two sons: Kristopher and Gary Shanon Repp.
