Mildred Louise Womack Morgan obit

Mildred Louise Womack Morgan was born on her parent's (Lee Roy Womack and Edna Pinegar Womack, both from Tennessee) farm in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. Her 2 older brothers were more than 10 years older than she. As soon as she graduated from Tecumseh High School, she moved to Oklahoma City where she attended Hills Business College.

She worked in Oklahoma City where she met an Air Force pilot, Harold William (Bill) Morgan. They married on February 17, 1946. Bill remained in the Air Force. Their only child, Carolyn Louise Morgan was born in Oklahoma City. The three of them moved to New York City, Alabama, Wichita Falls, and other locations.

After Bill was honorably discharged from military duty, he became a career corporate pilot, first with Samedan Noble Oil Corporation in Ardmore, Oklahoma. The Morgan family then lived in Tulsa, and later moved to Okmulgee in 1961, where Bill was a pilot for Vierson and Cochran Drilling Company.

Louise became an active member of Okmulgee Service League, serving in several capacities. She was an avid bridge player, belonging to more than one bridge club over the years. She began playing contract bridge with Mildred Metzger. They often drove to Tulsa to enter, play, and win in Contract tournaments. In at least one tournament, a table player insisted a card with the word 'Psychic' be placed beside Louise, as she and Mildred were bidding and winning so often. Later, Louise began playing Mah Jong.

Louise was also active in Okmulgee Garden Club. She and two other Garden Club members pursued the City of Okmulgee to make a park at the then overgrown area that is now named "Kiddies Lake." The three ladies overcame City resistance, landscaping obstacles, and money problems to give our town an ongoing gift. Louise served as president of the Okmulgee Garden Club. She then went on to be President of the NorthEast Oklahoma Garden Club in Tulsa. She then became involved in the Tulsa Ikebana (Japanese) Flower Arranging Society. She won many awards with her presentations during their competitions.

After her husband's unexpected death in 1977, Louise took the H&R Block Tax Preparer Course. She worked 26 years preparing the End of the Year Taxes for many of the residents of Okmulgee County.

Survivors include her daughter, Carolyn Morgan Spring (Rick), granddaughter, Morgan Spring Harris (Graham); grandson, Evan Thomas Spring; and great-grandson, Spencer Harris.

A graveside service for Louise will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at Okmulgee Cemetery. Arrangements have been entrusted to McClendon-Winters Funeral Home of Okmulgee.
