Barbara was a strong and outgoing woman filled with love, compassion, and humor. She had a quick wit about her and often shared quotes, sayings and poetry.
The Morgan home was filled with love, laughter, home cooked meals, and an open invitation for any and all family, friends and neighbors to visit. Barbara raised her children in a wonderful neighborhood that helped create lifelong friendships.

Barbara especially enjoyed travelling with her family. She toured Europe and had the opportunity to visit her mom’s hometown in Scotland.
