Sharon Gale Wesson Bridger

Sharon Gale Wesson Bridger passed peacefully into the eternal embrace of Jesus Christ and her ever- beloved husband, Robert “ Buddy” Bridger, in her 85th year on February 6, 2024 in Shreveport.

A memorial service at First Methodist Church in Shreveport will be held in the main sanctuary on Monday, February 19 at 2 p.m.

Gale was pre- deceased by her “Prince Charming” husband, Buddy; her parents, Corrie ( née Bennett) and George Wesson; her in-laws, Nettie (née Jones) and Stewart Bridger; her beloved sister, Dawn Wesson Cooper; and many other relatives and dear friends, whom she loved and also looked forward to seeing again in Heaven.

She is survived by her son, Jeffrey Bridger and his wife, Hope (née Sanders); grandsons, Samuel and William, and many other extended family members and dear friends, not named here for brevity and in fear we would leave someone out. Know that Gale would not forget anyone and is waiting for all of us in Heaven. Gale was a loving, devoted mother, grandmother, sibling, aunt, and friend; an avid gardener, traveler, thoughtful and active neighbor, and an exceptional cook, who generously celebrated every holiday with delicious, varied baked goods and the cheer of abundant life, lived under the ultimate authority of Christ.

While we mourn that she is no longer physically with us, we rejoice that she is reunited with loved ones who have gone before and with her Lord in Heaven.

In lieu of flowers and in honor of Gale’s devotion to the church and the community, all are encouraged to pray for and give to the charitable and educational institutions of their choice
