Mrs. Mary Francis “Pup” Morgan, 85, of Reidsville died peacefully in her home Sunday, November 20, 2022, under the care of her daughter, Phyllis, granddaughter, Agie, niece, Kym, and GHC Hospice.
Pup was born August 22, 1937, in Stillmore to Agie Sutton and Marie Hammock Sutton. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Jesse “Big Sonny” Morgan, Jr.; daughter, Penny Morgan. Pup grew up in Stillmore where she and her 6 siblings had a great life on her parents’ little farm. She met the love of her life in Stillmore – a man by the name of Sonny Morgan. Pup ran Metter High School for many years as the secretary and ordained “disciplinary”. Big Sonny, Phyllis, and Little Sonny were told on many occasions that if it was not for Pup, they would not have completed high school – whether they needed a pat on the back or a swat on the !!! Her greatest mission in her life was her daughter, Penny. Whether it was getting her ready on Friday nights for Metter High School Marching Band as the Drum Major or helping her understand life, she was Penny’s number one advocate. Pup was a great listener to everyone, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved watching the Atlanta Braves.
