Morgan Thomas Orr CHARLOTTE - Morgan Thomas Orr died Thursday, April 17, 2014, from a fatal car accident. Morgan was born in Dover, Ohio, on Nov. 14, 1949, to Ila Mae Orr and Thomas Fredric Orr. She grew up in Van Wert, Ohio, and later relocated to North Carolina. As a successful graphic designer, Morgan managed a graphic design team and created a software program for the Smithsonian Music Awards, which was later displayed in the Smithsonian Institute. She started her freelance graphic design company, where she created commercial ads, marketing portfolios and sales brochures for a number of RV wholesale companies. Morgan's love for animals was her passion and she was a member of the ASPCA. An animal was never considered a stray to Morgan. She either would accept them as a family member or would make it a priority to find good homes for them. Morgan attended The Ohio State University, majoring in graphic arts. Morgan's design skills, creativity, passion for family and pets, and heartwarming desire to help others led her to become Co-Author and Publisher of the Wise Up! Organizational Workbook Series. Morgan is survived by siblings, Richard Thomas, Penelope Spry and Janie Conn; her two children, Kandice Kerns Morrison and Chadwick Anthony Kerns; and her three grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in memory of Morgan Thomas Orr to the Humane Society of Charlotte, NC at 2700 Toomey Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28203.
