December 19, 1929October 16, 2020

Born December 19, 1929 in Fort Worth, Texas, to Floyd Morgan and Vela May Nabors Morgan, Zada left her earthly confines on Friday,October 16, 2020.

Preceded in death by her father; mother; step-father, Henry George; husband, Albert Tillman, Jr.; son, Barry; daughter-in-law, Linda; and her sister, Carol McGilvray.

Survived by sons, Floyd, Neal (wife, Mary Lou), and Phillip (wife, Cathy); grandchildren, Kristy (husband, Scott Stuart), Will (wife, Christa), Leslie (husband, Clay Terronez), Doug (wife, Kristy), Matthew (wife, Michelle), and Lee; great-grandchildren, Brian, Marissa, Luther, and Samatha; brother-in-law, John McGilvray; sister-in-laws, Kathleen Tillman and Lil Chastain; and many other family members (neices and nephews, cousins and their spouses and their children), and dear friends.

Zada loved her family, loved to cook (and she was a very good cook) and she loved to travel. She was always trying out new recipes along with old family favorites and planning trips across the country to see the places she read about in Southern Living and Texas Highways magazines. Zada enjoyed being a housewife and she enjoyed her employment and friendships made at Montgomery Wards and Eckerds Drug (formally Wards Drug).

She was a member of Eastland Street Church of Christ and Rosemont Church of Christ in Fort Worth and North Main Church of Christ in Weatherford, enjoying many friendships within those congregations. Zada really appreciated her Weatherford church family’s weekly visits and the Braum’s or Mesquite Pit runs after she quit driving.

The family would like to thank the many people who cared for Zada at Holland Lake Senior Care Center and more recently at Medical City Plano. Special thanks to Linda Johnson, you’ve been a dear friend whose help was appreciated more than you know.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a church service will not be held. There will be a brief graveside service at Laurel Land Cemetery in Fort Worth.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity in Zada’s memory.
