Carol Sue (Lucas) Morgan, 79, of rural Fayette, died Sunday afternoon, April 21, 2013, at the CHP Inpatient Hospice Center in Defiance, OH. She was born August 29, 1933, in Wauseon, Ohio, to the late Carl and Donelda (Dennis) Lucas. She married Wayne L. Morgan on January 23, 1954, and he preceded her in death on July 5, 1998.
Carol was a dedicated farm wife always working in the fields and later helped care for the dairy calves on the farm. She worked for 20 years as a cook for the Gorham Fayette School District and took her job very seriously. She also cooked at 4-H Camp Palmer for the 4-H and band camps. She enjoyed meeting the campers and still had them come to her as adults and share about their experiences. Her most fun job was working for The Pizza Stop in downtown Fayette making that perfect pizza. She was a great 4-H advisor for the Fayette Favorites Club and never missed a style show or dairy show to see her children and grandchildren show their projects.
Carol is survived by her daughter, Cathy (Lee) Leininger, and her son, David Morgan all of Fayette; she enjoyed her grandchildren, Alan (Laura) Leininger of Fayette and Kayanne (Jason) Sharp of Gahanna, OH; but a spark in her eye was her great-grandson AJ Leininger, and she was anticipating the arrival of the next Leininger baby. Also surviving is a sister, Janet Verity of Archbold, OH, who has been very supportive through her illness.
A memorial service for Carol Morgan will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. at Fayette Christian Church-Discples in Fayette. Private family interment will precede the service at the Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci, MI. There will be no public visitation or calling hours.
