MORGAN, Berdina Tarr departed this world unexpectedly August 28, 2021 with her family by her side. She is survived by her beloved husband, W. Tommy Morgan. "Berdie" as she was known to loved ones and friends was born in Tampa, Florida on October 10, 1939. She graduated from Plant High School in 1957 and Brenau College in Gainesville, GA in 1961 where she was a member of the Tri-Delta sorority. Having married Tommy on July 22 of that same year they just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. She taught 6th grade at Manhattan Elementary School for two years before starting her family. She became actively involved in several community organizations including Junior League of Tampa, Chiselers, Meals on Wheels, Weeders and her neighborhood Garden Clubs. She was a member of and loved Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church and enjoyed attending its Circle bible studies. She was particularly fond of the church's music. Berdie loved fishing in Boca Grande and the mountains of Western North Carolina. She had a wonderful eye and instinct for arranging flowers. Her ministry became repurposing the left over flowers from weddings and other celebrations. She created hundreds of smaller arrangements she would then personally deliver to nursing homes, healthcare facilities and others in need. She was a great fan of football, both college and professional. She greatly enjoyed playing bridge with friends. She doted on family, particularly her grandchildren and nephews. Mostly, she loved the Lord and raised two beautiful daughters teaching them the value of kindness to others, showing thanks, and living a faith filled life. Berdina is preceded in death by her parents, Lenarue and John Tarr; survived by her husband, Tommy; daughters, Ginny Morgan and Rebecca Alexander (David); grandchildren, Morgan and Nicholas Alexander; sister, Ginger Tarr Jacobs (Ed); and nephews, Will Burnette (Kelli) and Sean Shea (Tiffany).
