Georgie Mae Sadler Scrivener was born July 16, 1930 in Reydon, Oklahoma to James Logan Scrivner and Edna Mae Scrivener Tackett. She passed away peacefully on June 2, 2024 with her family at her side in Coppell, Texas at the age of 93 years, 10 months and 17 days.

Georgie grew up on a farm west of Reydon with her three brothers and sister. She graduated from Reydon High School in 1949 where she was taught by her older sister, Bonnie Hillan Scrivener. While playing on the high school softball team, Georgie caught the eye of her future husband, Claude Richard Sadler. They married in Canadian, Texas on June 25, 1949.

Claude and Georgie originally made a home in Reydon. Then they moved around before finally settling in Pampa, Texas. She starting working for Cabot in 1958 as an executive administration assistant to the comptroller. While working for Cabot, Georgie joined and became a life-long member of Desk and Derrick, an energy industry association. While working full-time, Georgie attended the Amarillo Branch of West Texas State University where she earned her associate’s degree. Cabot eventually became Ingersoll Rand where Georgie retired in 1995.

Claude and Georgie welcomed their one and only child, David Richard Sadler, in 1960. Georgie was a den mother for David’s Cub Scout Troop where she conducted meetings for the troop and provided snacks and games for the boys to enjoy.

Claude and Georgie eventually retired to their dream home on the farm they built in Reydon. Georgie’s hobbies included water skiing, square dancing, researching the latest holistic health remedies, gardening and baking. Her grandchildren fondly remember the meals she would bake from scratch and her health remedies paying off in the form of being able to do cartwheels well into her 60’s.

Georgie became the grandmother of Sarah, Laura and Chad Sadler after David married Charlotte Marie Brown Sadler.

Claude and Georgie packed many miles on their white Cadillac to visit their grandchildren in Coppell for holidays, cheer them on during dance recitals and soccer games and take them every summer to Wonderland Park. They created many life-long memories for their grandchildren on the farm with fireworks during the Fourth of July, tending to their garden and cattle, hosting Thanksgivings every year and building snowmen during the winter.

Georgie will be long remembered for her high beauty standards of looking her best before leaving the home with a full face of makeup and well-dressed attire. She got her hair done every week to upkeep her perfectly quaffed, red, freshly curled hair that became her signature look which she fought tooth and nail to keep from being blown over by the Oklahoma winds with either a headscarf, or in dire times, a grocery bag. Georgie went through many stylists for her weekly appointments until the week she died. She’ll be remembered as a strong-willed, determined women who loved her family and loyally supported them in many ways.

Her commitment carried over to many to charitable institutions she supported, including but not limited to, the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Disabled Veterans Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion and the American Civil Liberties Union. Georgie is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, husband and daughter-in-law, Charlotte. Georgie is survived by her son David; grandchildren Sarah Sadler and husband Corey Chachere, Laura Sadler and Chad Sadler, her great-grandchildren Lenora and Noelle Sadler Chachere, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, June 15th, 2024 at the Reydon Legion Hut from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.
