Edith Olaine Morgan

February 14, 1949 — June 13, 2024

We are here today to celebrate the life of Edith Olaine (Francis) Morgan. She was a sister, a sister-in-law, a wife, an aunt, a Grandma, a Great-Grandma, a friend but most of all a Child of God.

Edith was born in Bryan, Texas on February 14,1949, to William G. (W.G.) and Opal Francis. A family story has it that when her dad, W.G., was told he had a girl after having three sons and was asked what day it was, he told the nurse it was Easter! Edith left this earth and went to her heavenly home on Thursday, June 13, 2024.

Edith was preceded in death by her husband, Willie Ara Morgan, her parents W.G. .and Opal Francis, her two sisters-in-law Connie Francis and Lydia Francis, her “twin” brother Donald R. Francis, her granddaughter, Shirley Stewart and her nephew, Melton Francis.

In her early life she attended Cottonwood Baptist Church in the Tabor Community. It was at this small country church that she accepted the invitation and asked Jesus to be her personal Lord and Savior. While attending this church, Edith was involved in Vacation Bible, Sunday School, Church Camps and Bible Drills. She even sometimes played the piano or led the music there.

Edith attended Bryan schools and worked in the Bryan College Station area all her life. In November 1982, she found her true calling when she went to work at Twin City Mission. She became the voice on the line when you called TCM. Her co-workers called her “Miss Edith” and she was honored to be a listening ear to them as well as the countless people who came in contact with her throughout the years she spent at TCM.

It was also at TCM that she met her husband, Willie aka Frog Morgan. He told her that he married her to be the “reverse” for the car he owned at that time. In fact, one time Willie forgot to “back” into a parking space and Edith had to push the car out. They had a ten-year adventure filled with much laughter and Sunday drives in the countryside.

Edith was a member of The Church at Five Points and was the assistant Sunday School teacher for the adult class. She sang with the Worship Team while she was able to stand on stage and when that was no longer possible, she sang from her pew in church. While at Five Points Church, she was active in the Women’s Bible Study groups, helped with Operation Christmas Child Shoe boxes and the church’s Benevolence Committee.

Edith is survived by her brother Carroll Francis of Bryan, her brother William G. (Buddy) Francis and wife Evelyn of Wheelock, Texas, her sister Vivian Altimore and husband, Dana, of Franklin, Texas, her children Brent Morgan, Julie Morgan-Ryan, and Tammie Morgan, 4 grandchildren,13 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

“My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
