Marguerite Ester Morton, 96, passed away from natural causes on March 20, 2020, at Arbor House Reminisce Center in Norman, OK.
The daughter of Camillous Ray Brady and Margaret Estella Brady, Margie Morton was born in Bixby, OK, on December 27, 1923. She was a graduate of Preston High School. Margie married the love of her life, Raymond Tyrance Morton, on December 19, 1952, in Okmulgee, OK, who died on January 20, 2001.
Margie, along with her husband, was a very active member of the First Baptist Church of Norman, where they hosted many church gatherings at their home and lake house. She was very loved by her church family where she also worked from 1964 to 1990, and even then continued to volunteer for the church after her retirement until her health would no longer allow. She also proudly worked for Boeing in Wichita, Kansas, as a “Rosie” during WWII under the Rosie the Riveter campaign.
She was the true expression of God’s love and grace in this world. Her kindness and unconditional love were given to everyone who ever met her. She was the best Mother and Grandmother anyone could have asked for. She was an avid lover of her family, cooking and bird watching.
Survivors include one son, Terry Carl Morton of Norman, OK; as well as her grandchildren, Ken Morton and his wife Ana Morton, Lauren Bean and her husband Jerimy Bean and Casey Houseman. She will also be remembered by her seven great-grandchildren, Dallas Morton, Mikaela Morton, Jackson Bean, Amelia Bean, Penelope Bean, Brailey Houseman and Hudson Sadberry.
In addition to her husband and parents, Margie was preceded in death by her son Tim Morton; five brothers, Ray Brady, Waldo Brady, Arlis Brady, Kenneth Brady, her twin brother Marvin Brady; and her two sisters, Beula Brady and Jeraldine Brady.
She held a special place in her heart for her loving husband, Raymond Morton. Her life revolved around her children, grandchildren, her church and last but not least, her beloved dog Taffy. She will be dearly missed by her family and her friends.
