Saralea Richey Dodge, 89, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 10, 2019 at home with the love of family and Hospice Care in Grove, Oklahoma. Previously from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Saralea was a Travel Agent during those most wonderful and exciting of times with Spears World Travel Agency in the 60’s. Saralea and husband Lawrence Ray retired to the Zena Lake area on Grand Lake, and for the last 10 years resided in Grove, Oklahoma where they are close to friends of First United Methodist Church of Grove. At the time of her death, Saralea and Lawrence were married 72 years. She was born in Beggs, Oklahoma, March 19, 1930 to Mother, Elsie Mae Kite - Richey and Father, Pickney French Richey. Saralea graduated from Beggs HS and married Lawrence Ray Dodge Jr., also from Beggs on September 15, 1947. Together, Saralea and LR started their family in Borger, Texas raising three sons, while both worked for Phillips Petroleum, and in the mid 50’s they moved to Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Saralea was a ravenous reader, a meticulous receipt and records keeper, a talented musician, and even dabbled in painting but her strength was in her faith. Family will miss her cooking, her guidance and her love. Saralea is preceded in death by parents, French and Elsie Richey; two sons, Larry Wayne Dodge and Mark Edwin Dodge; two siblings, her older sister, Billie Jean Richey - Miller, and brother, Robert French Richey.
