Mom was a wonderful cook, On Saturday morning’s we all looked forward to her fresh homemade biscuits and fried potatoes. Mom Loved the beach and our yearly Family summer vacations. She was an avid golfer with her lifelong friends and a world traveler with Dad, but most of all; her Family was her life. Mom was immensely proud and supportive of her children, grandchildren & great grandchildren, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. As her health declined, she often walked the track around the pond at Keys Tower w/her endeared walking group.

A special Thank You to her brother, John Morgan for the care & support he provided to Mom.
