Lucille Morgan, age 98, of Science Hill, passed away Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at the Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Jean Waddle Care Center, after a short illness.
She was born on March 18, 1923 in Blackey, Kentucky; daughter of the late Bryant & Allie (Adams) Dixon. She was a long time member of Northside Baptist Church in Science Hill. Her love of God and gracious savior and church family gave her solace, especially the last few months when she was unable to attend church due to her failing health. She previously worked at Roses in the Tradewind Center for several years before retiring. She was very outgoing, never met a stranger, and was always ready to give a comforting hug.
Survivors include her grandson and caregive for the last several months, Anthony "Tony" Alcorn; two sisters, Martha Jane Burns of Blackey, Kentucky and Oma Jo Campbell of Indianapolis, Indiana; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Morgan; a daughter, Allie Sue Alcorn; a grandson, John Alcorn; her parents, Bryant and Allie Dixon; three sisters, Lyle Hampton, Pauline Shepherd, and Mary Back; two brothers, Wayne Dixon and Herman Dixon.
A Funeral Service will be held 2:00 PM Saturday, July 3, 2021 at the Chapel of Morris & Hislope Funeral Home with Bro. Dave Muse officiating.
