Brenda Lucille Morgan

October 16, 1945 ‒ March 20, 2021

Marion, Ohio

A great life came to a close this past Saturday, March 20, 2021.  Brenda Lucille Morgan was born October 16, 1945 to Snyder Morgan  and Jeneve (McCarty) Morgan in West Jefferson, Ohio.  She attended West Jefferson High School and later moved to Marion, Ohio.

She worked for the Department of Corrections for over 30 years which many felt added to her colorful language and her “take it or leave it” spirit.  Brenda tended to shy away from most religious and political discussions but never failed to tell you exactly what she thought on most matters.

Brenda’s greatest love in life was her many pets.  She wholeheartedly adapted the adage that no one could have just one.  Many dogs and cats were loved by her through her 75 years.  She cared for them, and they cared for her.

Brenda loved reading, drinking instant coffee and hanging out with her pets and friends. She was a devoted and faithful friend to Ed, Dorothy, Bill, Monica and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Frances “Pee Wee” Morgan.

Many of Brenda’s fur babies were graciously accepted by the “Homeless to Home Animal Rescue and Cat Sanctuary” in Marion, Ohio.  In honor of Brenda, and animal lovers worldwide, please consider a pet adoption or make a small donation to your local animal support organization.

Snyder Funeral Homes, Gunder/Hall Chapel is honored to serve Brenda.  Online condolences may be expressed by visiting
