I have such fond childhood memories of Morgan; she was a very unconventional, very welcome spirit in a conformist world...her singularity and humor are what I remember best...Sending much love to her daughters, Kelly and Kim.

She was fearless. At a time when "women's libbers" were verbally, and sometimes physically, abused and ridiculed, Johnnie, secure in her convictions of what was right, inspired the rest of Dallas Area Women's Liberation to continue to work for our equality.

The timeless essence of Morgan and her gentle spirit will forever be cherished by the countless people who came to know her. While the world is a sadder place without her presence, we find comfort knowing she will always be remembered with love. She has been one of the most influential people of my existence and life path since I first met her in the early 1970s. It was an honor to know her, and to stay in touch over these many years. I will miss her thoughtfully written notes & wise counsel, her generosity & deliciously crafted treats, the unlimited wealth of her knowledge, and the comfort of her love. My deepest heartfelt condolences to Kim & Kelly and all of your family. May the memory of Morgan's love and wisdom be with you forever and always.

My heart has an empty spot now that I will fill with loving memories of Morgan. Her wit, her love of life, her intelligence, her smile, her laughter, all will be sorely missed. May your rest be peaceful and may you be surrounded by all those you have loved. Your spirit will live on in my heart forever.
