Catherine Morgan In Memory Of Your Birthday
Place of birth: Shreveport, LA
Religious affiliation: Christian
Catherine May Smith Morgan, 90, died after a brief battle with end-stage liver disease on April 16.2018. She was born in Shreveport, LA on 10/23/1927 to James M. Smith and Frances Elizabeth (Mahon) Smith. She graduated from Byrd High School and then went on to Baylor University where she received a BA in medical technology. She worked in this field for 2-3 years. She was married to Robert James Morgan on July 2, 1949 until his death on July 26, 2005. She had a great love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and she loved to tell others about this. She is survived by her son, Alan J. Morgan (wife Lynn), daughter Johanna Boley (husband John), 6 grandchildren–Paul Boley, Andrew Boley, Eric Boley, Hannah Allen (husband Caleb), Nathan Morgan, Benjamin Morgan (wife Olivia); 3 great grandchildren-Tobias Allen, Everett Allen, Viviana Morgan. She is preceded in death by her husband, Robert James Morgan, daughter Saralyn Murphy, sister Betty Siegel and brothers Jim and George Smith. She was extremely proud of her six grandchildren and she always said to make sure they knew that she loved them. She reminded her family that she prayed for them daily. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Republic and a long time member of Columbus Ave. Baptist Church in Waco, TX. She had a wonderful smile and used it frequently to the pleasure of those she was around. She enjoyed finding ways to compliment others. She had a good sense of humor even in the last 2 days of her life. She was always interested in other people. She loved gardening, playing bridge, sewing, cooking and traveling with her husband. One of her favorite sayings was, “When I stop learning it’s time to give up my spot.” She often would make comments to perfect strangers if she liked, for instance their hair or their shoes. She was always very grateful to our father for how hard he worked to save enough for her to live well in her later years. She was always up for an adventure. Her final act was to donate her body to medical research. A memorial is planned for May 6 in The Woodlands, Texas. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the American Liver Foundation.
