Virginia Morgan

Sept. 10, 1936 - June 21, 2023

Virginia Morgan was born September 10, 1936, in Pomeroy, Wash., to Albert and Velma Oldenburg and entered heaven on June 21, 2023. Virginia spent her youth growing up on the family farm and attended schools in Pomeroy where she met her future husband Harold Morgan, Jr. (nicknamed Eugene by his family.) They were married in 1954 in Pomeroy and began their family shortly after. In 1968, they moved to Tekoa and settled there for the remainder of their lives.

Virginia worked outside the home at various times but primarily, she was a homemaker. When we lived on the farm, she was the cook for large harvest crews. Virginia was well known for her pies and specialties like cookies and cinnamon rolls. She was always furnishing treats for class activities for her kids and could be counted on for a last-minute request for a cake or cookies for various functions at school or church. She was an excellent seamstress and made many of the family's clothes. Virginia never forgot a birthday, anniversary or other important events of her large family and friends. She was a longtime member of the Plummer Assembly of God Church.

Virginia leaves behind four children, nine grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Her children are LaDonna Sienknecht of Tekoa, Marcus (Jeanne) Morgan of Nine Mile Falls, Michael (Robin) Morgan of Chewelah, and Coni (Neil) Downey of Wenatchee. She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, her parents, a brother Kenneth Oldenburg, and an infant son, Kevin.

A graveside service will be held at the Pomeroy City Cemetery on Saturday, July 8 at 11 am. Kramer Funeral Home of Tekoa is caring for the family.
