In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Bobbie Tyner Morgan, Sister of Larry Tyner

Funeral services for Bobbie Tyner Morgan will be held on Monday, July 14, 2014, at 11 a.m. at Robert Barham Family Funeral Home, with Dr. Raymon Leake and Rev. Jack Kern officiating. Officiating graveside will be Dr. Carl White. Visitation will be held on Sunday, July 13, 2014, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the funeral home and one hour prior to the service on Monday. Burial will be in Magnolia Cemetery.

Mrs. Morgan passed away at her home on Friday, July 11, 2014. She was the daughter of Leroy and Estelle Tyner and was born on August 3, 1930.

Our mother was a member of many groups and organizations throughout her life in Meridian. What she will be remembered best for, as her friends can attest to, is her love of her Lord and Savior, and being a fierce prayer warrior. Even her great-grandchildren knew to call on “Mimi” when prayers were needed. That is her legacy. She taught Sunday school to young people for 25 years at First Baptist Church Meridian and co-taught adults at Highland Baptist Church Meridian. At 60 years old she began international lay mission work in Russia, Kagastan and the Ukraine. She spoke in many churches around the state about her mission work encouraging others to carry out “The Great Commission.”

She is survived by her daughters, Debbie Witherington of Clinton, and Lynne Compton and her husband, Robert of Meridian; son, Yates Morgan of Texarkana, Texas; grandchildren, Lori Sturgis Dodson and her husband, Patrick, Kathryn Monsour and her husband, Greg, Tyner Mikell and her husband, Jeremiah, Geron Morgan, Maj Morgan and Chad Morgan III; great-grandchildren, McCall Morgan and Miller Sturgis, Hays, Anniston and Stelynn Monsour, and Audrey Mikell; sister-in-law, Gayle Tyner; brothers, Fred Tyner and Larry Tyner and his wife, Charlotte; sister-in-law, Lena Morgan and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Chad Y. Morgan, Sr.; her parents, Leroy and Estelle Tyner; her brother, Jack Tyner and her sister-in-law, Ann Tyner.

The family requests memorials to be made to Blair Batson Children’s Hospital or Highland Baptist Church Building Fund.

Pallbearers will be Jeremiah Mikell, Greg Monsour, Patrick Dodson, Lee Tyner, John Williams, Robert Compton, Lewis Tyner, and Clyde Serton. Honorary pallbearers will be Richard James, Rex Allman, Trevor Tyner, Houston Pearce, Stephan Pearce and Morgan Sturgis.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to her caregivers, Darlene Gibbs, Teresa Gates, Juanita Newell and Lois Hudson and also to Hospice Compassus for the excellent care, love, and compassion they showed our mother, grandmother and sister.

O God our Father, Creator of all the living,
we entrust to Your gentle care
all those we love who have gone before us;
and have gone to their rest in the hope of rising again. . . .

Eternal rest, grant unto Bobbie, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
