Remembering Marie Merrell Morgan 11/15/1956-11/08/2015

For 20 years Morningside School was blessed to have Teacher Marie Merrell Morgan with us. Many children and staff came and went in those 20 years, and they are all better having been influenced by Marie. She was the ultimate example of fun, joy, music, service, and most of all love. Her students knew that she cared about them and they adored her for it. We are so grateful for the love she had for the children and staff of Morningside and for the spark of energy she had with them for all of those years.

She has been courageously battling cancer since 2012. Although our hearts are so heavy that she has passed, we are at peace that she is no longer in pain. Our hearts ache for her family and all those who love her. Marie, your memory and songs will live on as long as there are children to sing at Morningside.Thank you for all that you taught us and shared with us! We miss you and WE LOVE YOU!

To apply for the Teacher Marie Merrell …
