SOUTH PORTLAND - Bonnie Lee (Willliams) Morgan, 85, of South Portland, passed away Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at her home in the arms of her children.
She is survived by her children: Pamela (Morgan) and Lee Nordstrom, Barry Morgan and Liane Shaw, Timothy Hastings, Lori Morgan and Henry Outzen; her grandchildren: Amy Martin, Chris Martin, Nick and Kelly Nordstrom, Jessica Morgan, Adam and Leilani Hastings, Margueritte Hastings, Jack Hastings, and Morgan Outzen; seven great grandchildren, her sister-in-law (and heart) Suellen Williams, many loving nieces and nephews, and an endless number of dear friends. Bonnie was pre-deceased by her husband Laurance E. Morgan, her brother Ray L. Williams and her beloved daughter Karen M. Hastings.
Bonnie was born November 6, 1930, in Chattanooga, Tennessee and graduated from High School in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. She attended business school in Mt. Clemens. She worked in business administration for many years retiring from the Zoology Department at the University of Maine at Orono in 1992.
Bonnie fell in love with a handsome sailor, "Buddy" Morgan, in 1951 and was married six months later. Together they raised four children while travelling around the world. Their greatest gift to their children was the gift of family love.
Bonnie was a voracious reader and was largely self-taught. She was a feminist before it was even a word. She was an amazing woman who provided strength and support to those in need. Bonnie was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who gave tirelessly to her family.
A celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, November 21, 2015, at the Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland. All are invited to a reception immediately following at the funeral home to celebrate Bonnie and a life well lived. Condolences may be expressed online at www.hobbsfuneralhome.com.
