A true light in this world, Anna Marie Morgan––beloved wife, mother and grandmother––passed away Saturday, February 6, at age 84. Her memory will live on in the hearts of her four children: Dan (wife Mindy), Celia (husband Dennis), Dana and Clay III, along with 18 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her devoted husband of 60 years, Clay Jr. The inseparable pair spent an incredible lifetime together, beginning as sweethearts at Lillis High School in Kansas City, MO. They adventured across the country, held hands every day, ate cookies for breakfast, and devoted their lives to each other and their cherished family. They were the ultimate model for a loving marriage.

Anna Marie was born on October 19, 1936, the only child of William H. and Anna Mae Shonborn. She retired after a lengthy career at Midwest Research Institute (MRI Global) as a Hazardous Materials Trainer and eventually Consultant (they missed her so much upon retirement, they talked her into returning in an advisory role).

Anna Marie was the most beautiful example of how to love others. Her permanent smile filled a room. Her positive outlook was infectious. Her selflessness a guide for us all. She was a brilliant sports fan, the life of every party, the first one to wish you a happy birthday, and the most genuine advocate for everyone else's successes and milestones.

Mom, Grandma, Mawie, Anna Marie, we will miss you with all our hearts, but we will never forget the way you took care of us, loved us and made us feel special.

Anna would light up the room the moment she entered it. R.I.P.

I worked in Anna's department at MRI nearly all the years she was there. I have never met a kinder and happier person. I hope she was able to enjoy that Super Bowl a year ago. How she would have loved that!

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Anna Maria playing cards with her talking to her about her about her family and the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND. THE ROYALS. I took care of her I was working Home Instead. I missed her when we no longer were coming to her daughters home. My condolences to the family.

Although for the last 53 years I have lived in Japan I have never forgotten this lovely lady. Never heard a harsh word from her, I feel so lucky to know her and also to have her as part of my life. Misao and I extend our love and best wishes to everyone. We are all better off for having her in our life. She will always be with us.

I am so sorry for her family to hear of her passing. I had the privilege of working with Anna Marie at MRIGlobal. She was such a positive upbeat person all the time and a real joy to be around. She was a long-time friend of both of my parents with whom she attended high school with at Lillis.

Dear Family: Please know of my prayers for you! (You know I never say that lightly)

From St. Augustine's Parish to Coronation Parish to St. Bridget Parish, my friendship with Anna Marie and Clay (and family) is a long one. I think of her and her warm and loving smile and personality.

Your old friend
