Lorelei Lindsey Morgan, 80, of Sturgis, Mississippi, passed away Saturday, January 8, 2022, at Vickers Personal Care Home in Mathiston, Mississippi, surrounded by her loving family. Funeral services were at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 14 at Morgan Chapel Baptist Church in Sturgis with Rev. Luke Gardner and Rev. Jeff Morgan officiating. Visitation was the day of the service from 10:00 a.m. until service time at the church. Interment immediately followed the service in Morgan Chapel Cemetery.
Lorelei was born October 23, 1941, to Grover and Pauline Lindsey. She was an active member of Morgan Chapel Baptist Church for many years. In 1963, she received her B.S. degree in Business Education from Mississippi State University. While teaching at Sturgis Elementary School and raising her family, she completed both Masters and Specialist degrees in Elementary Education. Lorelei enjoyed visiting antique shops and working with her flowers. Most of all, she loved her family and grandchildren following them as they participated in various school activities. She instilled in her family the principle of dedication to family as she lovingly cared for her elderly parents for many years.
Lorelei is survived by her loving husband of 58 years Tommy Morgan and their daughters Lori Ann Morgan (Wayne) Carpenter and Tasha Morgan (Curt) Wiggins all of Sturgis. One of her greatest joys was being “Mam” to her grandchildren: Chloe Carpenter (Casey) Morgan, Cully Wiggins, Jack Wiggins, and Ella Wiggins. Lorelei was preceded in death by her parents and an infant brother Paul Lindsey.
Serving as pallbearers were Wayne Carpenter, Curt Wiggins, Cully Wiggins, Jack Wiggins, Andrew Files, and Casey Morgan. Memorials in honor of Lorelei may be given to Morgan Chapel Cemetery Fund, c/o Jackie Makamson, P. O. Box 157, Sturgis, MS 39769.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Everett McKibben, Vickers Personal Care Home, and Kindred Hospice for their excellent care of our mom. We would also like to thank our family, friends, and church family for their love, prayers, and support during this time.
