Obituary

Lottie Mae Morgan, 72 daughter of the late Pearl John McCoy and Bessie Bellamy was born September 15, 1946 in Chadbourn, North Carolina. She peacefully departed this life on September 9, 2019 with her loving family by her side. She received all of her formal education in the Columbus County, North Carolina Public School System. She traveled from North Carolina for a better life for her family and ultimately settled in Atlantic City, New Jersey where she met her loving husband James D. Morgan of 47 years.

She worked various jobs in the hotel and restaurant industry and she also worked in the Atlantic City Public School system for a short time as a classroom assistant. She was last employed at the Showboat Casino. She resigned employment and remained a full time mother & wife of which her most cherished and favorite job of them all was "MOTHER".

Lottie was immensely proud of her family, and always bragged of how rich she was. She certainly made our house a home and one of her favorite past times was she had a green thumb caring for plants that she has nurtured for over 30 years. She leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.

"Casino Queen" she was extremely fond of the penny slot machines. It was once stated she wanted her urn placed on the stool in front of the machines after she passed. She loved spending time with her family especially gathered around delicious meals with lots and lots of laughter. Her latest and greatest passion was Facebook. She loved posting about her children but especially enjoyed boasting about her grandchildren's great accomplishments. She was their biggest supporter and advocator. Often while working her midnight shift on Facebook, she would troll their pages commenting on each and every one of their pictures and reporting back to their parents of her findings. She was blocked a few times by family members for her snooping. She also became quite the radical on Facebook standing up for the liberation of her people. She was definitely going to let you know about her stance and she was unapologetic for her post. (POWER TO THE PEOPLE)

With only 24 hours in the day she somehow managed to spend quality time with each one of her family members. When you spoke with her by phone, you had to be prepared for at least a 3 hour conversation. She was the "glue" that held her family together.

Lottie was known for her quick wit, her infectious smile, and her kind and compassionate spirit. She was like that mother in the movie "Soul Food"… She was a spiritual woman who honored the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ in her life and her continuous prayers covered our family through a many of trials and tribulations.

She was preceded in death by her parent's and 10 siblings and she leaves to mourn & cherish her beautiful legacy, her loving husband, James D. Morgan, her six children: Lanetta Miles (Claude), Andre' McKoy (Jenny), Glynis Byrd-Brown, Sharon Cross (Bryan), Sami Khabir & Carmen Morgan. Twenty-Two grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, a "Special Niece" Debbie McCoy-Ward, one brother J.M. McCoy of Detroit, MI, a sister-n-law Betty McKoy of Baltimore, MD and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Although she was the "GLUE" who held us together her final and ultimate request was that WE HER FAMILY REMAIN TOGETHER AS ONE…..

We will always love you Mom, Nana & GG.
Loving Submitted-your family…
