Ms. Constance “Penny” Morgan was born June 18, 1947, in Chambers County, to the union of Mr. John Morgan Sr. and Rachel Cox Morgan. She departed this life on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at West Georgia Medical Center, LaGrange.

“Penny,” as we called her, accepted Christ at an early age, at Pilgrim Baptist Church, Lanett, where she was clothed with strength, dignity, and laughter without fear of the future. She later united with Faith Mission Church now Eagles Nest Cathedral Church West Point.

She received her formal education in the Lanett Public School, where she was a member of the Lanier High Class of 1965. Constance was a dedicated caregiver to Mrs. Lottie Stiggers, her grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. Penny was soft spoken with a heart of gold. She was faithful, loyal, and steadfast. She loved her family. Most of all she loved God. Penny was also known to many as “Gran-Gran”, who loved her dearly.
