A Homegoing Celebration for Sister Creola T. Morgan, who passed away Wednesday, February 10, 2021 will be held Saturday, February 20th, 11:00 am at First Baptist Church of College Hill, 3838 N. 29th Ave., with Pastor S. Evan Burrows, officiating. There is limited seating for this service. The internment will be held in Garden of Memories Cemetery.

Sister Morgan was born on July 14, 1927 in Kendricks, Florida. She was the ninth of eleven children born to Robert and Anna Thomas, all of which preceded her in death. Sister Morgan was also preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Deacon Robert L. Morgan and her son, Thomas L. Morgan. Sister Morgan was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of College Hill for more than 70 years.  She served on many ministries and committees including, the Deaconess Ministry, Senior Adult Choir, 12 Little Angels Sunday School Class, and Jolly Seniors Ministry. She loved her church family and they loved her. The 13th Chapter of first Corinthians was her favorite Bible reading. She will be sorely missed by her loving family which includes, son, Lawrence Morgan; daughters, Evelyn Ransom, Deborah Wallace (Donald) and Diane English (Ronald); grandchildren, Edythe Ransom, Roger Ransom, Robert Morgan II, Thomas Morgan II, Archie Harrison II, Trena Smith, Jaynean Langley, Brian Ransom, Tiffany Morgan, Corey George, Michael Mack, Derrick George, Iesha Morgan, Lorraine Morgan, Briyana Aiken and Diamante Morgan; her favorite nephews, Jimmy Lee Pew and C. Tyrone Taylor; a host of great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and her church family. Her Sisters in Christ are in abundance. Some of those relationships span over 50 years. They include, Sister Willie Mae Williams, Sister Evelyn Brookins, Sis. Almeeta (Baby Sister) Williams, Sister Hazel Matthews, Sister Jackie James and Sister Hazel Fields; Sister Morgan formed close relationships and provided guidance to many others over the years.  Her daily hour-long conversations with Cornelia Griffith and or Pearl James were not uncommon. As her interaction and communication with younger women increased, she adopted many as her daughters, Carol Nelson-Taylor, Vicki Nickerson, Michel Samuels, Karen Mintor, Pat Pitt and Carol Brookins just to name a few.

The visitation will be held at Aikens Funeral Home on Friday, February 19th from 5p.m. – 6p.m.  The invited family and friends are asked to meet at the church at 10:45 for the service. We are following the CDC guidelines.
