Elizabeth B. Morgan, 83, entered eternal life Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 at the home of her daughter.
The Guest Book is expired.
Mrs. Lizzie, as she was affectionately known, was born Feb. 28, 1931 in Guyton. Her entire life was spent in this small town and there is no place else on earth she'd rather been. She spent her life in service to others. She loved her Lord, husband, children and grandchildren with all her heart. There was not a better cook or housekeeper ever born. She had a doctorate in domestic engineering, working hard all her life rearing her children and grandchildren.
She could handle a Ford tractor plowing a 100-acre field as well as she could bake one of her delicious cakes or prepare one of her scrumptious meals. There will never be another Italian cream cake like hers. Her yard was immaculate; there was never a leaf, limb or pine cone on it.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd E. Brogdon and Margaret Barner Brogdon; her loving husband of 62 years, Fred L. Morgan Jr.; siblings, Troy Brogdon and Mary B. Owens.
She is survived by her children, Sharon E. Morgan, Debra M. (Curtis) Scruggs, Kay M. (Chuck) Evans and Fred L. (Tomara) Morgan III; grandchildren, Jamie Tucker, Kristopher Brackbill, Joshua Forbes, Troy, Gage and Hunter Morgan; numerous great-grandchildren, step-great-grandchildren; sisters, Linda Butler and Vera Keith.
Visitation was Friday, Aug. 15 from 10:30 a.m.-noon at Pine Street Baptist Church, followed by funeral services at noon with Rev. Chris Roberson officiating. Pallbearers will be Kristopher Brackbill, Joshua Forbes, Troy Morgan, Gage Morgan, Randall Tucker and Brandon Evans. Honorary pallbearers will be her great-grandsons, Matthew Morgan, Gavin Brackbill and Clayton Tucker.
Interment followed in Guyton Cemetery.
We attribute her longevity to a daily breakfast which consisted of Cheerios, bananas and many types of juices.
A special thanks to Ogeechee Area Hospice, especially Stephanie, Nichole and Brenda.
Remembrances may be given to Pine Street Baptist Church Building Fund, P.O. Box 125, Guyton, GA 31312.
