A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, at Calvary Baptist Church for Mary Annette Morgan.

Morgan, 69, met her Savior face to face Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018. Her family is very thankful that she is no longer struggling with this life’s illnesses and struggles. She is now fully healed.

Annette was born Oct. 26, 1948, in Alamogordo to Ella Lee and Henry Ward. While attending Artesia High School, she met a cute redheaded boy named Ernest Morgan. He became her best friend and lifelong love. They celebrated 52 years of marriage in April.

She excelled at being an amazing mom to Richard Morgan and Tammy Brown. She spent many hours at the library, local parks, and school events with her kids. She ensured they were well loved. Her grandkids enjoyed playing board games, racing cars, and coloring in the floor with their grandma.

Annette loved to read and spend time with her church family at Calvary Baptist Church. She also had a wry sense of humor, great dance moves, and cooked everyone’s favorite dumplings.

She is so loved by the family left to carry on her legacy: her husband, Ernest Morgan; son Richard Morgan and wife Kimberly; daughter Tammy Brown and husband Steven; grandkids Skyler, Christy, Shilo, Crisha, Dalton, Devin, Magaly and Trey Morgan, and Chris, Katie, Trevor and Emma Brown; great-grandkids Kira, Sophia, Jase and Mia Morgan; brothers Russell and Kenneth Boyd, and Buster, Bobby, Billy and Bert Ward; sisters Mona and Leona Ward; and sister-in-law Dorothy Morgan.

The family would like to thank the following people and agencies that provided excellent care, love and support through her journey home: J&J Home Health, Encompass Hospice, San Pedro, Dr. Salgado, Dr. Caley, Yvonne and Heather.

We are thankful for the foundational truth of Jesus that she passed down to her kids and grandkids. “We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord” – 2 Corinthians 5:8 – Welcome home, Annette.

Arrangements are under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary. Condolences may be expressed online at www.artesiafunerals.com.
