Notice Condolences

Aug. 13, 1920 - July 4, 2013
Claire Morgan, 92, regained her independence and joined her Lord on July 4. A native of Fairfield, she had lived in Vallejo for 76 years before moving north to live with her son and his wife in the house that was at one time her sister's home. She was a proud third generation member of a Solano County six generation family.
 She was a graduate of St. Vincent High School in Vallejo in 1938 and of Armstrong Business College in Berkeley.
 Employed at Mare Island Naval Shipyard as a secretary, she retired in 1980 with 31 years of service and then worked part time for 15 years in various places.
 Claire enjoyed having lunch with her friends, gardening, genealogy and doing crafts. She was an avid fan of the Duke basketball team as well as the Lakers, also Notre Dame football and of course the 49ers.
 She was a member of St. Michael's Catholic Church, NAARF, Solano County Genealogical Society and a former member of St. Catherine of Siena Church in Vallejo.
 She was preceded in death by her brother, Raymond Whitney, in 1983 and her sister, Marjorie Church, in 2002.
 She is survived by her loving family, son, Stephen (Pamelyn); grandsons, Michael (Kirsten) and Marc (Rhoda), and great-grandchildren, Julie, Jacob, Alexis, and Sophia, and caring nieces, nephews and cousins.
 Visitation will be at Allen and Dahl Funeral Chapel, 2655 Eureka Way, Redding on Sunday, July 14 at 3 p.m., and Rosary said at 4 p.m. Mass of Christian burial will be Monday, July 15 at 10 a.m., at St. Michael's Catholic Church, 3440 Shasta Dam Blvd., Shasta Lake.
