Greta Charlene Morgan, 87, died in Hillsboro, Kans. on October, 7th, 2015. Greta was born January 20, 1928 in Champion, Neb. to Samuel Fred and Nettie (Steele) Goddard. Greta was the tenth of eleven children. Due to the Depression, this very large family moved many times in order to survive.
After her father died, when Greta was still quite young, she moved with her mother and two of her sisters to Woodward, Okla. It was in Woodward that she met Floyd Lewis Morgan and on March 28, 1945 the two were married in Buffalo, Oklahoma. As they were only 16, their mothers had to give them permission to marry. The couple moved to Oklahoma City where Floyd became a baker and the first of their 4 sons was born.
The family moved many times while Floyd worked for the Bond Bread Company. In 1971, Floyd left Bond Bread and went into the restaurant business. He later went to work for Smith International in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Floyd passed away in January 2004. Greta continued living in Ponca City until 2007 when she moved to Valley Center, Kansas to be near her son, DeWayne and his family. Greta moved into assisted living in Hillsboro in 2013.October 08, 2015 Cueball
