Lavone Morgan Obituary, Death – Survived by

Lavone Morgan Obituary – Lavone Morgan (nee Wolman), age 83, passed peacefully into her Eternal Rest on Friday, January 7, 2022. She was born in Caldwell, TX. She graduated with a Nursing Degree from the Brackenridge School of Nursing in Austin, Texas in the early 1960s. She also earned a Bachelor’s in Social Work from Texas Woman’s University in 1996. She is survived by her three children, Christopher Morgan and wife Laura, Kara Morgan and husband John McCarthy, and Kimberly Evers and husband Greg; her grandchildren Mary Katherine Morgan, Joshua Montgomery Morgan, Elinor Morgan McCarthy, and Sean Morgan McCarthy; her siblings, Gladene Godby and Ray Wolman; and many dear cousins and nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband; her parents (Henry and Frances Wolman); and her siblings, Annalyn Macik and Kenneth Wolman.

Lavone met her husband, Don Morgan, through his sister (Tess Heisler); Lavone and Tess had become acquainted when they sat at a diner counter together after their nursing night shifts in Houston. In addition to gaining a steadfast companion with her marriage, she also expanded her family and enjoyed years of close relationships with many of Don’s siblings, in-laws, nieces, and nephews. As Don’s job moved him to different parts of the country, they were always able to connect with the family members who lived close by. Lavone greatly valued being part of a community, and she built her own circle of friends with each move: from the Fern Street biddies in Chicago to her Education for Parish Services (EPS) cohort in Virginia, to her social work classmates in Texas, and her Rummikub group at the Assisted Living facility in Dublin.

The rituals and sacraments of the Catholic Church greatly resonated with her, and she converted to Catholicism as an adult prior to getting married. She loved to visit the Cenacle, a Catholic retreat house in Houston, and found great joy from her time there with her spiritual director, Sister Lois. She loved Broadway musicals, impressionist art, crystal, Dr. Pepper, Pringles, John Denver, and the beach (not necessarily in that order). She loved her family most of all and enjoyed seeing her children and grandchildren more frequently once she and Don moved to Ohio. Those who knew her would often speak of her smile and the light she would bring to a room.

She had a long, lovely life and we were blessed to call her Mom.
Visitation will be held at SCHOEDINGER DUBLIN, 5980 Perimeter Drive, Dublin from 9:30-10:30 AM with a Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 11 AM at St. Brigid of Kildare at 11 AM on Friday, January 14, 2022.
