Morgan, Carol

Written by David Green.

Carol Sue Morgan, 79, of rural Fayette, Ohio, died April 21, 2013, at the CHP Inpatient Hospice Center in Defiance, Ohio.

She was born Aug. 29, 1933, in Wauseon, Ohio, to the late Carl and Donelda (Dennis) Lucas. She married Wayne L. Morgan on Jan. 23, 1954, and he preceded her in death July 5, 1998.

Carol was a dedicated farm wife, always working in the fields and later helping care for the dairy calves on the farm. She worked for 20 years as a cook for the Gorham Fayette School District and took her job very seriously.

She also cooked at 4-H Camp Palmer for the 4-H and band camps. She enjoyed meeting the campers and many of them visited her as adults to talk about their experiences. Working for The Pizza Stop in downtown Fayette was the job she considered the most fun, making that perfect pizza. She was a 4-H advisor for the Fayette Favorites Club and never missed a style show or dairy show to see her children and grandchildren show their projects.

Carol is survived by her daughter, Cathy (and Lee) Leininger, and her son, David Morgan, all of Fayette; her grandchildren, Alan (and Laura) Leininger of Fayette and Kayanne (and Jason) Sharp of Gahanna, Ohio; a great-grandson AJ Leininger; a sister, Janet Verity of Archbold, Ohio, who was very supportive throughout Carol’s illness.

A memorial service is scheduled at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at Fayette Christian Church-Disciples. Private family interment will precede the service at Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci, Mich. There will be no public visitation.

Memorial donations are suggested to a charity of the donor’s choice.

Arrangements were made by Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette.
