Vera Faye Morgan, 82, of Crossett, passed away October 15, 2020, at the Stonegate Health and Rehabilitation Center.
She was born in Pine Bluff on July 26, 1938, to her parents, Arvey and Alta Firestone Hughes.
She was a 1956 graduate of Hamburg High School, a member of South Main Baptist Church, and for more than thirty years worked at Ashley County Memorial Hospital in various capacities, including as a nurse’s aide and switchboard operator.
Crafting was among her many gifts, including crocheting, but her real passion was sewing. She could make just about anything, even without a pattern. She often sewed for the public continuing even into her golden years. She was also a fabulous cook and cherished any holidays when she could get her entire family together around the table.
Vera had immense love for her family as well as for each and every neighborhood kid who considered her their second mama, but her grandchildren and great-grandchildren held a special place in her heart.
Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 32 years, Nathan Glen Morgan, one brother, James Hughes, and her sister-in-law, June Hughes.
She is survived by two sons, Barry Morgan and wife, Julie of Crossett and Steven Morgan and wife, Kristi of Crossett; seven grandchildren, Whitney Farmer (Andy) of Hamburg, AJ Morgan (Hannah) of Sterlington, Louisiana, Benji Morgan (Kaitlyn) of Crossett, Casey Morgan of Memphis, Tennessee, Sydney Morgan of Little Rock, Adam Kelley of Grand Bay, Alabama, and Austin Kelley of Crossett; along with eight great-grandchildren and a host of other family and friends.
Visitation will be Saturday, October 17 from noon until 1 p.m. at Medders Funeral Home, in Crossett. A Celebration of Life graveside service will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at Crossroads Cemetery with Bro. Lyle Hern and Bro. Bruce Culp officiating. Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for comfort and social distancing.
Honorary pallbearers are AJ Morgan, Benji Morgan, Adam Kelley, Austin Kelley, Andy Farmer, and Bill Morris.
