Marguerite Marie "Peggy" Morgan welcomed God's embrace with her family at her side in the comfort of her Dayton home of 19 years of February 1, 2008.

Peggy was born in Worcester, Mass. on January 28, 1925 to Aldea Cedras and Frank Louis Trudeau. She married Warren "Randy" Morgan on March 8, 1945.

She embraced her role as wife and mother to her four sons. She possessed a lively intellect, and instilled in her family a passion for spirited debate on a wide range of topics. Her wisdom, wit, humor, integrity and indomitable spirit were an inspiration for her family. She fought discrimination and injustice, was an outspoken defender of the underdog and may times opened our home to people in need. She was a fearless adversary, deflating the pompous, exposing the deceitful, and stifling the intolerant qualities which she imparted to her four sons.

As a wife, Peg was Randy's dream come true. She was his best friend from day one - cheerleader, critic, motivator, booster, confidante, and enthusiastic bow person in their canoe. In all matters of importance, they functioned as a team. They were a formidable combination. Peg was a dedicated volunteer in a wide variety of venues: as an aide in a home for severely disabled children; as an aide in a convent for elderly nuns; as a friend to lonely patients in nursing homes; as an adoption counselor for the Humane society; as a dog obedience instructor; for children in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H. She was an advocate and volunteer for the Democratic party, and frequently participated in Community service organizations.

Peg is survived by her husband of 63 years, Warren R. "Randy" Morgan; her sister Virginia "Ginny" Garcia; sister-in-law Gwen Trudeau; her sons Bruce, Dan, Glenn, Tom, Harold Scobie, Scot Cropper and Tom Fisher; her daughters Cheryle, Marty, Allison and Kim; grandsons Randy, Reshard, and Robert; granddaughters Bonnie, Calisha, and Tiffai; great grandson Toby, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Our family extends heartfelt thanks to St Mary's Hospice and the team of Penny, Joan, Vicky, Ellen, and Dr Brogan for their tender, compassionate, and skilled professional care and support.

No service will be held. A celebration of life for family and close friends will be held in the spring, at a time and place to be announced. In lieu of flowers, the family request that a donation be made to your local Humane Society.
