location-icon

Oklahoma City, OK

Casey Ingargiola, born October 27, 1927, passed from this life on February 20, 2024. Born in New Bedford, MA to Casey, Sr. and Myra Ingargiola, Casey had four siblings, Francis, Joe, Elsie and Bernice.Casey, Sr. had immigrated to the United States from the Cape Verde Islands by serving on a whaling ship for 2 years that ultimately dropped him off in the “new country” in 1920. Casey, too, loved the water as much of his youth was spent digging clams and fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, not to mention getting into mischief with his identical twin brother, Joe.Casey had no idea that a trip by him and Joe to visit his older brother, Francis, who was in the Navy stationed in Norman, OK would change his life forever. Francis and his wife, Jess, decided to throw a party for the twins to welcome them to Oklahoma. The party involved music and dancing where Casey met a young lady by the name of Verna. Verna and Casey were immediately taken with each other and danced the night away, hardly aware that anyone else was there. The relationship did start off on a confusing note. Verna heard Casey to say that he worked at First National and that his father was a crook. Verna was somewhat taken aback that First National was actually a grocery store, but was greatly relieved that his father was a cook and not a crook!For 2 years after Casey returned to his home on Cape Cod, he and Verna wrote to each other and their love continued to grow. At the age of 25, Casey left his home on the Cape and moved to Oklahoma where he married Verna on October 24, 1952 and they set up their home in Oklahoma City. They had 2 boys, Randy and Tony.Casey continued in the business he knew so well, working for Safeway Grocery Stores, ultimately becoming a store manager. He subsequently took a job working for Kraft Foods where he worked for the remainder of his career, 32 years in all. He built strong relationships with his customers through his own brand of customer service. After being promoted to another account, the salesman taking over his former customer got so tired of hearing about how great Casey was, he ultimately told them that Casey had died in a futile effort to stop their endless praise of him!Casey and Verna continued to enjoy Saturday dances at their second home at Falconhead Ranch and Country Club just outside of Marietta, OK. Many mornings and evenings were spent watching the varied wildlife in the area from their expansive front porch and talking of days to come and those gone by with family and friends that came to visit.Casey was an avid golfer, playing twice a week with his regular foursome well in to his 70’s. When he wasn’t golfing, he could often be found in one of his and Verna’s favorite casino haunts where Casey’s lifetime earnings were reportedly more than enough to support his golfing outings. They also traveled extensively with their travel club, making lifelong friends and enjoying many adventures both in the United States and abroad.Casey was preceded in death by his parents, Casey, Sr. and Myra; his wife, Verna; and his siblings, Francis Ingargiola, Joe Ingargiola and Bernice McCormack. He is survived by his sons, Randy and wife Angela Ingargiola of Edmond, OK and Tony Ingargiola of Austin, TX; one granddaughter, Kristen and husband Daniel; and 3 great-granddaughters Reese, Reagan and Eleanor of Edmond, OK.Viewing at Mercer-Adams Funeral Service will be Monday, February 26 from 8am-5pm. A funeral service will be held at Mercer-Adams Chapel in Bethany, Oklahoma at 2:00pm on Tuesday, February 27.

Joseph Nelson Sieber

Mar 07, 1930 - Feb 21, 2024

Oklahoma City, OK

Joseph Nelson Sieber, beloved husband, father, leader, manager, supervisor, and friend, joined the Lord on February 21, 2024. He passed away after a long and prosperous life among his many friends in Concordia Independent Living while he cared for the needs of his wife, Marie. Born March 7, 1930, Joseph was the only child of Joseph and Grace Sieber of Mountain Top, Pennsylvania. In 1931, he was baptized at Mountain Top Methodist Church.Joseph was self-motivated and lived life to the fullest. He delivered newspapers for five years and had perfect attendance with no customer complaints. He hunted by himself for food, ignoring the sun or snow during the Great Depression to help feed his family before he was a teenager. Joseph was the first Eagle Scout in Mountain Top at age 15. He graduated High School and then entered the Wyoming Seminary in Wilkes Barre. After a while, Joseph felt the urge to embark on a new adventure, so he joined the newly established Air Force. He had to eat 12 pounds of bananas to reach the minimum weight to join. He developed a lifelong love for Aviation in all its many forms. After his military service, Joseph used the new G.I. Bill to attend college at Syracuse. He graduated, soon married Suzanne "Sue" Mary Lee, and moved to Texas! There, he got his first government job as an accountant and had his first child, Joseph Lee Sieber. After a short while, they welcomed their second child, John Eric Sieber, in Texas!Opportunity called, and Joseph moved his family to rural Alabama outside Huntsville. He joined the new NASA team and worked beside Professor Dr. Wernher Von Braun and Dr. Wernher Sieber, who would introduce Joseph to others as his "cousin." Joseph spent several years working with NASA. Naturally, they rounded out the family with Alan Nelson Sieber while there. Opportunity knocked again, and Joseph moved to Washington D.C. to work in the Department of Transportation, where he was the special assistant to the Secretary, John Volpe. Joseph was personally responsible for the creation of "Transpo 72." He was instrumental in getting approved for many things we take for granted today, such as safety bumpers, seat belts, padded dashboards, and right-side mirrors on cars.Joseph was a man who never hesitated to take action and grab any opportunity that came his way. When the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approached him, he knew it was time for a new challenge. With only a month's notice, he packed his family and traveled to Oklahoma, prepared to take on procurement for one of the world's largest aviation organizations. Joseph succeeded and excelled at his job, leaving his mark on the FAA. It is evident that, at times, having the courage to take a risk can result in remarkable achievements! He retired as a GS 14 at age 49. He then spent many years seeing the world, visiting every continent, and going around the globe twice. He went to Antarctica to see the penguins and even personally broke off pieces from the Berlin Wall.Indeed, a wonderful and prosperous life! Joseph set an excellent example for all and insisted on excellence for all he was responsible for. His sons were successful, and his grandchildren were even more.Joseph was preceded in death by his grandparents, Joseph and Anna Sieber nee' Schmidt and Nelson and Elizabeth Billings nee' Odgers; parents, Joseph and Margaret Grace Sieber nee' Billings; his wife, Suzanne Mary Sieber nee' Lee; and daughter-in-law, Paula Eileen Sieber nee' Pool.Joseph is survived by his wife of 19 years, Mildred Marie Lee Davis Montgomery Sieber, whom he met at the FAA; his sons, Joseph Lee, John Eric and wife Yvonda nee' Anglin, and Alan Nelson and wife Kelly nee' Cameron Sieber; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and dog, Calli.Joseph Nelson Sieber's life will be celebrated at the Concordia Gathering Place, 7707 West Britton Road, Oklahoma City, on Saturday, March 9, at 2 PM. Guest parking is marked "Event Parking." In lieu of flowers, consider donations to the Sons of the American Revolution or the American Legion, both of which he was a member.

Her positions included working at the Naval Annex as well as managing three military Post Exchanges (PX) and more. During this time, she also guided tours at the Smithsonian.Lavennia loved to sew and took great pride in it.

When she did retire from the government, it was as a civilian GS-07. In her retirement, she moved back to Oklahoma, this time to Oklahoma City. Her love of sewing became her passion. She continued being a seamstress until she could not do so any longer. Over the last several years, sadly, she slowly declined due to dementia. On the morning of Friday, February 23, 2024, Lavennia Mae woke up in heaven, happy and unburdened.Lavennia was preceded in death by her parents, Frank Calvin and Ludie Mae Dutton; and brother, Vernon Dutton. She is survived by her son, Raymond Stucks and wife, Diane, of Marshall, TX; son, Steve Stucks and wife, Teri of Oklahoma City, OK; son, Stan Stucks and wife, Christine of Odessa, TX; son, Bryce Stucks and wife, Yvette of Shawnee, OK; and brother, Marvin Dutton and wife, Lulane.
