LEXINGTON- Emma Lee Morgan, 84, passed away Thursday, March 8, 2018. She was born on October 29, 1933 to the late Oscar and Birdie Burns Damrel.
Ms. Morgan raised three children with Christian values, loved her family with pure and unconditional love and taught them to do the same toward others without race or economic prejudice. Her children and grandchildren were her trophies, she gave the best hugs and never hung up the phone without saying “I Love You”. She loved to laugh and enjoyed a good sense of humor. Ms. Morgan was a patient and intelligent observer and thinker and an excellent listener. A survivor, an excellent cook: award winning chicken n dumplings, chili, and the best sage dressing. She was an excellent backseat driver, loved life and savored every moment of the day. She was never in a rush but somehow always on time, and worried about everything.

Ms. Morgan enjoyed NASCAR (Kasey Kahne was her favorite driver), Hallmark movies, University of Kentucky basketball, The Young & the Restless Soap Opera, watching and feeding wildlife (especially birds), gardening & flowers, flea markets, anything with her family, shoes, learning new things, loved the change of seasons: enjoyed the colors of fall the most, events & holidays, country music, grilled hot dogs, fried bologna, anything Cincinnati: Skyline Chili, LaRosa’s, Graters Ice Cream, The Bengals, the Cincinnati Reds (she once touched Johnny Bench on the arm). Her hobbies included taking care of her plants, she enjoyed bowling, fishing, collecting seashells, looking at family pictures, saving anything with special meaning (drawings & birthday cards), professional worrier, reading (newspapers & novels), sitting in the sun, needle point and crocheting.

Ms. Morgan is survived by her daughters, Karen L. Morgan and Sandra “Sandy” L. Hauser; her son Joe H. (Rebecca) Morgan; her grandchildren, Olivia M. Hauser, Laura Mays and Leslie Morgan Klaiber; her great grandchildren, Hayden Klaiber, Hadleigh Klaiber, Brett Mays, Holden Klaiber, Shelby Mays, Luke Mays, Harrison Klaiber, Hudson Klaiber and Ella Mays.
