Mrs. Evelyn Percell  Morgan was born January 30, 1936 to the late Evelyn Percell in Sanford, NC. She received her eternal wings on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at her home.

Evelyn attended W.B. Wicker and the Lee County School system for her education. Due to trying to take care of her family she was not able to complete high school and get her diploma.  She began to work to take care of her family. She worked at Cornell Dubaleir until they relocated and later was employed at McDuffs Dry Cleaners and  Fairview Dairy Bar.

Later in life she met the love of her life and married the late Mr. Hugh Ellis Morgan.

Evelyn enjoyed sitting at home reading and watching TV and spending time with her pets. She loved cooking and fellowshipping with friends and family. You could always find her at the round table in the kitchen where she was laughing and talking. If you over stayed your welcome she will let you know.
