Obituary of Jeanne Morgan

Jeanne M. Morgan, age 67, of Wisconsin Rapids, passed away Friday, January 19, 2018, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Jeanne was born December 1, 1950 in Wisconsin Rapids to George and Eglesphere (Davis) Pelot, Sr. She grew up in Wisconsin Rapids and graduated from Lincoln High School and went on to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. Jeanne married Francis “Lee” Morgan on December 6, 1969, at First Baptist Church.  They were blessed with 48 years marriage.

She was a loving and caring person, who was always there for anyone who needed her. Family and friends meant everything to her. Jeanne could be found at all of her children’s and grandchildren’s activities. She cherished being a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Jeanne enjoyed making stained-glass items and was a great shot with a 22. She was a wonderful cook. Jeanne enjoyed reading Paula Deen cookbooks and trying many of the recipes.  One of her favorite excursions was a trip that the couple took to Savannah, Georgia where they visited Paula’s restaurant and met Paula’s sons. Jeanne was known for her famous baked beans, which were a must at family events. Christmas Eve at mom and dad’s will not be the same without her. She is loved and will be deeply missed.

Jeanne is survived by her husband, Francis “Lee” Morgan; her children: Dawn (Dave Anderson) Morgan, Shane (Tanya Schmoeckel) Morgan, and Joseph Morgan; 12 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; her siblings: Harvey (Linda) Pelot, Don (Judy) Pelot, Evelyn (Ron) Swenson, and Donna (Pete) Stern; her sisters and brothers-in-law: Emily Firth, Jenny Hilbur, Bernice Mauland, Sarah (James) Wirth, Mary Morgan, and Harry (Debra) Lafler; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, a granddaughter, siblings: George Pelot, Jr., and Beverly Bishop, and brothers-in-law: Robert Firth, Tom Hilbur, Robert Mauland, and John Morgan.
