Catherine "Katie" Sargent - Oak Island

Catherine "Katie" Sargent, age 93, of Oak Island died Tuesday, January 8, 2013.

Katie was an RN and veteran of WWII where she met and married the love of her life, Carl “Bud” Sargent. She joined him Tuesday night in her new home. Katie leaves behind a legacy of warmth, sweetness and caring. She was a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She enjoyed all of these, but being a mother was what she loved the most. She gave her children wings and let them fly while supporting them with love and a “as long as you are happy” saying. Katie was predeceased by her daughter Cathy,

She is survived by Susanne Villeneue and her husband Michael, son Galen, Nancy Voikos and her children Alex and Zack; Cathy Dove’s children Jonathan his wife April their children Shamus and Eve; Ben Dove and partner Colleen; Charles Sargent and his partner Rhonda Hess, Charles’ son Matthew, his wife Iris and their daughter Ariana; Pamela Sargent and fur children Rosie and Mischief. Her pets were also family members, making sure they were spoiled.

If you met Katie you were instantly welcomed into her world and came out blessed by being a part of it. Friendship was very important and she maintained friends for years, staying in touch with cards and letters. She was a good listener, never speaking of her own aches and pain which she had many, but providing words of comfort to others. A nurse for many years, it was natural for her to put other people’s needs first. She practiced random acts of kindness often, whether it was cookies taken to appointments, brownies for BLT productions and her famous cookies at Christmas. She knitted blankets for babies, made pillows and quilts for family and friends. People up and down the east coast have items made by Katie with love. She enjoyed volunteering at the Dosher Flea Market with her husband for many years.

Katie was the best example of how a life should be lived; facing adversity with courage, strength and determination, surrounding herself with music, loved ones, giving of herself without expecting anything in return, seeing everyone as an equal, appreciating the world around her and all its beauty, loving walks on the beach and feeding the seagulls.

Heartfelt thanks goes to the staff of Liberty Home Health Care, Oak Island Rescue, Brunswick County Rescue, Dosher Memorial Hospital and Rehab, Ocean Trail, New Hanover Medical Center , Lower Cape Fear Hospice, Wilmington Health Oak Island and Oak Island Presbyterian church. Also thanks to Mary Snead, Herb and Mary Linesburgh.

A Memorial service will be held 1pm, Saturday, January 12, 2013 at the Oak Island Presbyterian Church with Reverend Walter Taylor officiating.

Katie requested the donations be made in her memory to Southport Oak Island Animal Rescue. Cards to the family can be sent to 134 NE 19th St Oak Island NC 28465.
