Bonnie Caren (Curry) Morgan

1935 - 2012

— Bonnie Caren (Curry) Morgan, 77, loving mother and grandmother, dear friend and lover animals and everything outdoors, passed peacefully as she was surrounded by family on Saturday, July 7, 2012. Bonnie was born on a ranch in Snowflake, Arizona, on March 15, 1935 to Harriet (Kaufman) and Silas Deane Curry, and moved with them to Tahlequah, Oklahoma in her teenage years. She was exceptionally devoted to her family and marriage of almost 58 years to Dr. C. T. Morgan, in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, where they spent many years involved in the community and raising children, then moving to Muskogee and Fort Gibson. Bonnie was known for her steadfast, honest and gentle nature as she tended to her family, pets, gardens and the family tree farm in Fort Gibson before ultimately returning to Tahlequah.

Bonnie is preceded in death by her parents, Deane and Harriet Curry, her husband’s parents, C. G. and Nannie Ruth Morgan and brother-in-law, Dr. Omar John Morgan. She is survived by her loving husband, Dr. C. T. (Tom) Morgan, his aunt, Elizabeth Kathleen Morgan, her sisters, Lurely (and Tom) Graham, Jane (and Glen) Tell, brother, Dean (and Jolly) Curry, her husband’s brother, George (and Vivian) Morgan and his sister, Kathryn Dyer, along with her children, Charles Morgan and Karen Marlow (who will marry on Saturday), Jennifer (and Tom) Palmer, Melissa (and Trent) Stogsdill, Bill (and Heather) Morgan and Caren (and Jay) McCurdy, fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

The family would like to especially thank the caring staff at Go Ye Village for their attention, love and support of Bonnie and the family in recent months.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 11, in Tahlequah at Green Country Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made in Bonnie’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association of OK and AR, for "Team Bonnie", for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, www.alz.org or 2448 E. 81st Street, Suite 3000, Tulsa, OK 74137.
