Mildred Phipps Morgan, 87, passed away on July 14, 2013 in Foley, Alabama after a long illness and a lifetime of dedication to her church and family. Born October 24, 1925 in Gadsden, Alabama, she was a long-time resident of Jacksonville, Alabama. During World War II she was one of the many women who served the country working on airplanes in Mobile. After the war she married Duffie Morgan who preceded her in death. They served as pastors of several churches in north Alabama for over 50 years, including at Tredegar Chapel Church for 19 years where they developed many lifelong friendships. She was a leader in the Congregational Holiness Women's Missionary Council, and an active member for many years, serving as president for 24 years. She is survived by her children, Cathy Morgan, of Ponte Vedra, Florida; Michael Morgan, of Centre, Alabama, Janet (John) Ricks, of Gulf Shores, Alabama; two grandsons, Michael and Matthew Morgan and several nieces and nephews. Survivors also include Bobby Morgan, Dot and James Buford, and Margaret Garrett. Her last months were spent as a resident of Golden Living Center where she was lovingly cared for and she came to view her caregivers as extensions of her family. Friends and family remember her strong spirit and sense of humor. Pallbearers will be James Beatty, Hoyt Turner, Dennis Couch, Warren Morgan, Charles Parker and Mac Fair. Honorary pallbearers will be Women's Missionary Council. Services will be held at K.L. Brown funeral home in Jacksonville today at 12 p.m. with the Rev. Bobby Morgan and Rev.
