Mrs. Morgan, 96, of Ruby, passed from this life on Thursday, January 10, 2019.

An integral part of the Ruby Community, Joyce met her husband, Alva, there and raised her children among friends and family. Her roots were strong and anchored to Ruby where she was a lifelong member of Pine Grove Baptist Church. Joyce was a faithful Christian, serving the Lord through her community, at church, and in Women's Ministry Union (WMU).

She proceeded to make her mark as proprietor of Morgan's Grocery and Postmaster of the Ruby Post Office. One of her favorite hobbies was fishing, which she did throughout her life with children and grandchildren. Upon her retirement, Joyce spent her time volunteering at Pine Grove through the WMU, making anything and everything grow, fishing, quilting, arts, crafts and spending time with family especially her children and grandchildren.

Many pots of greens, black eyed peas, cornbread and creamed corn were eaten with family and friends around Mamaw's table - that bend in Highway 454 won't be the same without her!

She was preceded in death by her husband, Alva O. Morgan, Sr.; son, Alva O. Morgan, Jr.; daughter, Anita Jean Morgan; parents, Yancey and Mattie Gray Chelette; brothers, Nevel Chelette and wife, Eva and Emitt D. Chelette, and wife, Brettie; sisters, Berniece C. Harvey, and husband William G., Clarice C. Hale and husband Leston, Jeanette C. Lawrence Poissot and husbands, William Lawrence and Reese Poissot, and Lorene Morgan.

Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Robert Wayne Morgan; grandchildren, Charles Jeff Morgan and wife, Elizabeth, Keith Owen Morgan and wife, Jennifer, Jimmy Morgan, Stacy Morgan and Leslie Morgan; great grandchildren, Zachary Morgan and Jacob Morgan; daughter-in-law, Vicki T. Morgan; niece, Linda Faye Futch, and a host of other family and friends.
