Jennie (Szigeti) Wargo, age 100, a long-time resident of the Black Rock section of Bridgeport, Connecticut recently passed away at The Cloisters Assisted Living Center in Deland, Florida. Jennie had a lengthy work career at Bridgeport Metal Goods, Perkin-Elmer, and the Fairfield School System. She enjoyed reading, sewing, gardening, and cooking her favorite Hungarian dishes – such as "chicken paprikas". She instilled a strong work ethic, a spirit of generosity, and the significance of earning a solid education to all of her family and friends. Jennie was very proud of her Hungarian heritage and still spoke the language on occasion – even during her later years. She continued to help and remained loyal to her Hungarian relatives before, during, and after the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. She was predeceased by her husband, James (Jimseye) Wargo, and her Mother, Teresa Svecz. She is survived by her loving daughter Judy Moorhouse of Weaverville, NC. and her loyal son Ken Wargo of Cheshire, CT. She is also survived by her grandson William Koleszar (Elizabeth) of Birmingham, AL. and her granddaughter Jennifer Dickens of Apopka, FL. Her legacy also includes four great-grandchildren – Skylar, Caroline, Andrew, and Courtney. Although separated by many miles, she remained devoted to her cousins Vali and Gabor Komjathy, of Gyor (Hungary), Dr. Katlin Komjathy of Indiana, PA., and Edit and Mickey Ranky of Budapest (Hungary). She also cherished the life-long friendship of Audrey and Bob Tobin of Warren, CT., as well as the mutual adoration of the staff and residents of The Cloisters Assisted Living Center. Burial will take place at the Mountain Grove Cemetery in Bridgeport, CT. at the convenience of the family and through the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Black Rock Garden Club, c/o Sue Lattin, 113 Ellsworth Street, Bridgeport, CT. 06605.
