• MORGAN, Virginia Edmonds,
died peacefully Nov. 12, 2007, at Brakebill Nursing Home. She was in her 87th year. She and her late beloved husband, Howard W. Morgan Sr., were charter members of Bearden United Methodist Church. Virginia was born Dec. 1, 1920, to late Vernon and Viola Brooks Edmonds. She was a graduate of Knoxville High School. She and her husband were active for many years as supporters of little league, Babe Ruth League and Bearden High School athletic activities. Her door was always open, and many were the lunches that she served to neighborhood kids and strangers alike. Her homemade hot tamales were legendary. She loved music, from Beethoven to Scott Joplin, and was an accomplished pianist. Any dog or bird that was lucky enough to land at the Morgan house was destined for a life of luxury. After their sons were raised, she and her husband Howard traveled extensively until his illness prevented further trips. She cared for him lovingly throughout his long illness until his death in 1995 after 54 years of marriage. She was also preceded in death by her brothers, Earl “Ham” Edmonds and Robert “Bob” Edmonds; sister, Frances Boyer. She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Howard and Teddy Morgan of Dallas, Texas, Tom and Ellen Morgan of Knoxville; grandchildren, John Morgan of Atlanta, Ga., Alexandra Mareiniss and husband, Darren of Piano, Texas, Katherine Breslin and husband, Joe of Dallas, George Morgan of Knoxville, Sam Morgan and wife, Carey of Reading, Mass., Ned Morgan and wife, Heather of Knoxville, and Will Morgan of Nashville; great-grandson, Doyle Gardiner Morgan of Reading; sister, Marty Dick of Houston, Texas; and many loving nieces and nephews. The family would like to express its gratitude to the staff of Brakebill Nursing Home for the compassionate care they provided. Funeral service was Sunday at Bearden United Methodist Church with the Rev. Mike Sluder and the Rev. Cabel W. Trent officiating. Interment followed at Highland Memorial Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be given to Virginia’s favorite charities: Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding, the Holston United Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville or Knox Area Rescue Ministries.
