Lottie May Morgan, 94, of Reedsport, Oregon passed away peacefully in the early hours of September 15, 2023. She went to heaven surrounded by love in the comfort of her son’s home.
Lottie was born in Wilsonville, Oregon on July 10. 1929, to Axel and Dolly Kyllo. Her family moved to Reedsport when Lottie was 2 years old. She attended Reedsport public schools earning her diploma with The American School. Growing up was tough during the depression era in Reedsport, so Lottie worked a variety of jobs including: Reedsport taxi stand, The Courier newspaper (sending the paper to service members during the war), babysitting, and helping to raise her baby brother Larry.
Lottie met her prince charming, the love of her life, Ernest Morgan at a Smith River grange dance in 1949. Love was in the air, and it wasn’t long before Ernie proposed, and she said, “yes”! The couple wed at The Reedsport Community Church on October 1, 1950. They were married for 66 wonderful years, spending the entire time in the same house. There they raised their 3 children: Rodney, Emery, and Carol.
Lottie was a dedicated wife and mother. She loved her family whole-heartedly. Lottie was quite a conversationalist. She never met a stranger that she wouldn’t talk to. She loved talking to people, and if she discovered they were of Norwegian descent like herself, she would just start beaming. She will truly be missed by all who loved and knew her.
Lottie is preceded in death by her husband, Ernest; son Rodney Morgan; sisters, Eleanor Kalenius and Anna Woods; brothers, Harvey Kyllo and Richard Kyllo Sr.; granddaughter, Alison Morgan and great-granddaughter Morgan Breann Nelson.
She is survived by her son, Emery Morgan and wife Deanna; daughter, Carol Leland and husband Ron; sisters, Delores Coady and husband Les, Sharon Ansama and partner Gene Pinkerton; brother, Larry Kyllo; granddaughters Philisiy Garnett and husband Don, Nicole Burts and husband Mike; Auna Hall and husband Wesley, Kory Morin and husband Jeff, grandson, Trent Morgan and wife Trista; 15 great-grandchildren, 5 great-great grandchildren and generations of nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held at Dunes Memorial Chapel, Saturday, September 23rd at 1pm with viewing from 11am to noon. Graveside services and interment will be held at Reedsport Masonic Cemetery. Family and friend are invited to attend a reception at the Reedsport Senior Center from 2:00 – 4:00pm.
