Ola Genevieve Morgan “Gennie” passed away quietly with her family by her side. She was an 80 year-old, longtime area resident.
Gennie was born on September 15, 1929 in Zena, Oklahoma to John and Martha (Hampton) Smith. She was a nurse’s aide for many years and later worked at the Jay Head Start, where she was loved and affectionately known as “Granny” to all the kids. Gennie was very family oriented and generous to all. She enjoyed cooking, canning fruits and vegetables, reading books and singing old church hymns. Above all she was a ”born again Christian” humbly leading many people to Christ including her own children. She faithfully assisted her late husband Wiley, who pastored many churches in Oklahoma and Kansas.
Gennie is survived by her two daughters Brenda Morgan and Joyce Burr both of Jay, Oklahoma. She is also survived by four grandchildren as well as three great-grandchildren. She was loved and will be missed by many.
