sarah josephine stallings

 

            Sarah Josephine Stallings was born on August 4, 1918, in Atlanta.  Her parents were Marcus Anthony Jones and Sarah Josephine Thomas.

            After earning her diploma from Commercial High School in Atlanta in 1936, Josephine went to work for the Citizens and Southern Bank.  In 1946, she married Roy H. Stallings, Jr., giving birth to two sons in 1947 and 1950.

            Josephine worked in accounting for the C&S Bank in Atlanta before moving with her family to Newnan, GA and continued her career in accounting working for different companies in Newnan and Whitesburg until her husband was transferred to Eatonton, Georgia in 1964.

            Taking advantage of an opportunity to return to school, Josephine became a freshman at Georgia College and State University when her youngest son was a junior there just after her 50th birthday.  Majoring in early childhood Education, she earned her bachelor’s of Science degree when she was 55 and accepted a job teaching at Butler-Baker Elementary School in Eatonton, GA, in 1974.

            Josephine’s specialty was teaching mathematics, and she quickly earned a reputation for having her students achieve high math scores on standardized tests.  She would have a number of students stand at the board working problems while the rest of the class checked their work at their desks.  It was quite entertaining to watch all the calculating, checking and cross-checking going on during their math sessions.

            Josephine taught school until she was 79 years old and upon retiring moved to Blairsville, Georgia, in 1997.  During her life, she was very active in the VFW and Moose club and certainly enjoyed playing bingo.  During the past ten years she especially enjoyed spending her days at the Union County Senior Center.

            She is survived by her two sons, Roy H. Stallings III, of Smyrna, and Mark A. Stallings of Blairsville, their wives, one brother, Henry Jones of Cochran, GA, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Graveside services were held on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2010 at 12 p.m. from the Crestlawn Memorial Cemetery in Atlanta with the Rev. Keith Crowgey officiating.
