Marguerite Morgan

January 17, 1932 — May 12, 2024

Marguerite "Maggie" Morgan peacefully passed away at Newton Presbyterian Manor on May 12, 2024.

On January 17, 1932 in Newton, KS, Maggie was born to Brooks and Audrey (Winger) Terry. She had one brother, Frank. She graduated from Newton High in 1950 and married her high school and college sweetheart Richard "Dick" Morgan on June 6, 1953. Maggie graduated from The University of Kansas School of Education in 1954.

Over the years Maggie became an active member of St. Mary Catholic Church and even taught school there. She and her husband Dick raised their family in Newton. In 1975, she began selling houses and later brokered Maggie Morgan Real Estate. She owned Century 21, Inc and served our local community as a broker with Prudential Dinning-Beard and Berkshire-Hathaway until her retirement in 2017.

Maggie loved time with family and friends at Pete's Puddle Lake, Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings, Bridge Club activities, and reading. She enjoyed trips to Kansas City to see her brother and family and enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren grow up. Maggie took great pride in her roles as a mother, teacher, wife, business professional, and friend.

She is preceded in death by her parents, one brother, husband Dick, daughter Terry (Morgan) Sheffler, grandson Nathan Martinez, and great grandson Maverick Polley. Maggie is survived by three sons, Mark (Jane) Morgan, John (Susan) Morgan, Michael (Sharon) Morgan, and two daughters, Catherine (Tim) Polley and Anne (Norman) Ellis. She leaves behind 9 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.
