Mary Anne Morgan

July 9th, 1935 - June 8th, 2024

Mary Ann Morgan (Mamie), 88, died peacefully in her home on June 8, 2024.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Cliff, her eldest daughter, Luanne Loughran, and her grandson, Jason Soares as well as five of her eight siblings, Len Finken, Lois Olerich, Ken Finken, Ed Finken, and Don Finken. Mary is survived by her four daughters, Patti Burrup, Tina Bolin, Denise Morgan and Jan Morgan as well as thirty-one grandchildren and sixty-four great grandchildren.  She is also survived her three siblings, Leo Finken, Alice Harmon, and Paul Finken.

 

Mary was born in Sioux City, Iowa, to parents William and Helen Finken.  She married her high school sweetheart, Cliff Morgan, and they spent the next 68 years raising five daughters and enjoying their ever-growing family.  Cliff worked for AT&T which moved the family from Iowa, Colorado, Minnesota, California, Washington and even for a while to the Virgin Islands.  Their last move was retiring in Payette, Idaho, in 1993 on a small farm.

 

Mary held down various jobs through the years including being a telephone operator, working for a fabric store and being an operations officer for a bank.  Raised in a devout Catholic home, Mary loved her faith attending daily mass for many, many years.  She was a member of the legion of Mary as well as volunteering for the St. Vincent DePaul Society reaching out to community members that needed help.  She spent countless hours crafting items for church bazaars with friends and family.

 

Mary loved music and raised her family in a home filled with it.  She would sit down once in a while and play a tune by ear on the piano.  She sang with the girls, played jacks and jumped roped.  When they were older, Cliff and Mary enjoyed playing bridge with friends on the weekends.

 

Her love of crafts and sewing ranged from making clothes for her daughters to quilting, hand embroidery, making ceramics in her own kiln, candle making, and teaching the next generations crocheting and knitting.  Each of her 32 grandchildren were give a handmade afghan for their 1st and 16th birthday, as well as Christmas gifts and baby gifts for their children.  She loved to bake pies and homemade bread and made a big production of making a beautiful selection of cookies and candies every Christmas.

 

Mary was a soul that deeply loved God.  With her husband she raised her children in the faith and taught them a beautiful devotion to Christ and His Blessed Mother.  Several days before she passed, she told the girls she was just waiting for Jesus.  How we will miss you Mamie, but we know you are safely in the arms of your loving Savior.

 

Eternal rest grant unto Mamie, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.  May she rest in Peace.      Amen
