Jessie Faye Glover Sabo of Easterly, Texas, affectionately known as “Memaw,” passed away peacefully in Bryan, Texas, on May 9th, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.
Jessie was born in Elgin, Texas, the third child of Jessie Willard and Hattie Louise Lehman Glover. Upon graduation from Stephen F. Austin High School in Bryan, she married Phillip Jordon Sabo and moved to San Antonio where she worked from the San Antonio Express News for a number of years, followed by a 30-year distinguished career with Southwestern Bell/AT&T. She lived in the Dallas area until she retired from AT&T and moved to Easterly where she thoroughly enjoyed her country home.
She was a woman of profound faith, integrity, and compassion. Jessie knew the value of a dollar, hard work, sacrifice, and the love of family. She enjoyed listening to music, dancing, fishing, reading, Texas Rangers baseball, the Dallas Cowboys, and she loved her Aggies! Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Jessie Faye was a dear friend from the first grade on. She got on Bus #44 out past Harvey and Billy Bob Sanders and I got on at Booneville. I was so glad to see a another girl on the bus. (The only kids I knew before the first grade were Dave Mayfield, Bill Kutzschbach and Marvin Porter as we were the only kids in our Sunday School at the First Presbyterian Chruch.) I always thought that Jessie Faye was very sweet. I loved her blond hair and incredible smile.
Jessie and I never did a lot together, but we really liked one another and had tremendous respect for one another. She was "solid". It is obvious that she became an incredible person as you read her orbituary. We got to speak over the phone with one another a couple of times after we both retired, but we missed one another at our 50th. I would have loved to have seen that precious smile at least one more time. Thanks, Jessie, for being a friend whom I will never, ever forget.
