      Funeral services were held Tuesday at the Runnels Cemetery in Broaddus.

      Mrs. Morgan was born in San Augustine County, attended County Schools, and Mary Hardin-Baylor University in Belton.

She was co-founder of the Hampton-Morgan Chair of Nursing at Mary Hardin-Baylor at Belton.

      Mrs. Morgan was head of the Department of Public Welfare offices in San Augustine County for a number of years. While living in San Augustine, her home was the Ezekiel Cullen House at Congress and Market which she sold in the 1950's to Hugh Roy Cullen, who restored it to the 1839 setting and presented it to the Ezekial Cullen Chapter of the Daughters of The Republic of Texas. She visited here for historical activities often thoughout the years.

      She was descended from a pioneer San Augustine County family and used her means to presume the family lands near Broaddus, including the Runnels Cemetery where she was buried.
