Elsie Morgan (April 11, 1927-May 18, 2014)
We want to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family of Elsie Morgan (FS ’51) who went to be with her Saviour and Lord on May 18, 2014. Sensing a call to missionary work, Elsie enrolled in Bethany Bible College to get Bible training in addition to the secretarial training she received at Saint Ambrose Convent in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. In 1952, she and her husband, William (Bill) Morgan (’51) sailed to South Africa where they served for 33 years as missionaries. As an invaluable secretary overseas as well as at Bethany Bible College, Elsie faithfully served the Lord.
Elsie is survived by her husband, Bill; her children, Suzanne Ferriera (Dan) of South Africa and Murray Morgan of Sidney, B.C.; four grandchildren, and six great grandchildren.
