A songwriter once declared, May the Works I've Done, Speak for Me!"
It is with most sincere sympathy that we formally announce the passing of, Sister Shirley Morgan, who transitioned from this life on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
Shirley Louise Morgan was born on February 18, 1944, in Cairo, Georgia, the only child born to the late Pauline Williams and Lucious Williams. She was married for 57 years to the late Bennie Lee Morgan.
