Interment will be at New Cleveland Cemetery. She was born in Cleveland, MS, to Scott and Jessie Gilmer Brown on August 23, 1933. Growing up she attended Litton and Skene schools. It was at a basketball game that she met her future husband Ralph "Sonny" Lee Morgan. They began dating and after getting cold feet at least twice, she finally agreed to marry him on his third proposal. They exchanged vows at a preacher's house in Shelby, MS on November 5, 1949. She was just 16 and Ralph was 21. They remained husband and wife for 60 years and raised three children, Patty McMurry of Boyle, MS; Scott Morgan of Searcy, AR and Vicki Brooke of Cleveland, MS. She only worked a few years outside the home but most of her years were filled with the duties of wife and mother which she loved. She enjoyed spending time working in her yard although she asked herself several times over the past few years "what was I thinking when I planted all of this stuff". She especially loved the precious time and special moments that she got to spend with her grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Scott and Jessie Brown; brothers, Earnest Brown and Jack Brown; sons-in-law, Donald McMurry and Robbie Whitt; and step-grandson, Chris Roberson.
