    My sympathy and prayers for the entire family. I worked with Harriet for many years. Harriet was well respected in her position and a great friend to so many. I first met her when our daughters played baseball at Garvin Park. Later I again met her at Citizens bank. A awesome lady she will be missed

    So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Causey was my first baseball coach. So glad she helped in the development of Evansville Girls Little League. I only got to play one year, but it was a blast.
    I often wondered how she was doing as well as Jackie and Jenny. I have great childhood memories with all 3 of you
    . May God comfort you all during this difficult time.

Harriett Ruth (Jerger) Causey, 84, passed away on June 17, 2022. She was born in Tell City, Indiana, on August 6, 1937, to Carl and Virginia (Rose) Jerger.

Harriett was a graduate of Reitz Memorial High School, class of 1955. After high school, she opened the door to a career in the banking industry. She worked at Citizens Bank after high school where she met her future husband, Donald Causey. She worked for 44 years with Citizens through all the name changes to Fifth Third as a Data Processing Analyst, and later as a Supervisor. In 1958, Harriett married the love of her life, Donald Causey, and together they had three children. She loved being a mother and being involved with her kid’s activities. She was part of the group that originated the Evansville’s Girl’s Little League in the 1970’s for her daughters to play and she supported her son’s baseball team too. Harriett enjoyed all of her sporting events. She and Don attended many years of Central High School baseball, basketball, and football games. She was an avid St. Louis Cardinal’s fan, loved Notre Dame football, and was always cheering on the Indiana University basketball team. Church was also very important to her. She was a member of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church for over 60 years and she supported Don’s First Avenue Presbyterian Church as well with many fellowship functions. Harriett loved to travel, and if you asked her where her favorite place was to go, she’d tell you anywhere her family was. Her husband, kids, and grandsons were her world. She also loved spending time with her sister and her family and all her other nephews and nieces. The love and wisdom she gave to her family will live on in her memory.

Harriett is survived by her husband of 64 years, Donald Ray Causey; children, Jeff (Sheri) Causey, Jackie Causey, and Jenny Causey; her grandsons, Danny (Kristen) Causey and Scott (Trent Vigil) Causey; and her sister, Debbie (Butch) Schneider.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Virginia Jerger; her sister, Karen Harper; and her brother, James Jerger.

Services for Harriett will be held at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Evansville, IN, on Thursday, June 23, 2022. Visitation will begin at 9:00am with the mass starting at 10:00am. An entombment will follow, taking place at Sunset Memorial Park. Any memorial gifts can be given to the American Cancer Society in memory of Harriett.
