Mary Merle Arline, daughter of Frederick and Elizabeth Arline, was born in the village of Otter Creek, Florida, on September 15, 1927, and died in her Mesquite, TX home on March 9, 2013. Her demise was the result of a long bout with Liver Cancer. She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, sisters, and family survivors include her husband of 68 years, Edwin B. Morgan, Sr., Sons Edwin B. Morgan, Jr. Dennis W. Morgan, William R. Morgan, Ten Grandchildren and Eight Great Grandchildren.
Mary first met her husband to be in 1943 when he arrived in Cedar Key, Florida for duty at the local Coast Guard Base, and she was serving her Country as an airplane spotter watching for enemy flights via the Gulf Coast. Dating, however, began months later. They were married in Gainesville, Florida on September 30, 1944, and moved to Miami, Florida, the headquarters of the Coast Guard's 7th Naval District. At the end of World War II, she and her family moved to Lawton, Oklahoma, and resided there until 1966. She was a member of the First Methodist Church and taught a Children's Sunday School Class. At home, she loved to cook, play bridge, and occasionally do part-time work at the Lawton Clinic and the local Hospital. She also loved to go camping with her family in the nearby Wichita Mountains. The family moved to Dallas in 1966, where she was a dedicated Cub Scout Den Mother, member of three bridge clubs, and a wonderful matriarch. When her sons became adults, she joined the workforce of the John Buist Chester Hospital as a medical records data entry specialist in the first national program using a shared computer for the storage of hospital records. Retirement came in 1981, and she moved with her husband to Mesquite, Texas where she lived until God called her home.
Funeral Services will be held at the Gonzalez Funeral Home and Crematory Chapel (formerly Anderson Clayton Bros Funeral Home in Mesquite).
