NORWAY — Phyllis Louise Morgan, 87, a lifelong resident of South Woodstock, went to sleep Sunday morning, Jan. 7, 2018, at Stephens Memorial Hospital in Norway.

She was born April 4, 1929, in South Woodstock, the third of three children to Harvey T. and Zella V. (Harlow) Silver. Phyllis attended local schools, graduating from Woodstock High School in 1948.

In 1949, she married Charles Maurice Morgan on May 28 in Waterford, by Pastor Wilbur Bull. They were married for 54 years at the time of Charles’ death in 2003. They lived their entire life in South Woodstock.

Phyllis and Maurice had two children: Craig, born Sept. 13, 1950, and Wendy, born March 20, 1954. Phyllis worked part of her life at Penley Corp. of West Paris and Stowell of Bryant Pond. She was a wonderful homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother.

Phyllis enjoyed her two grandchildren Chad and Christopher, and two great-grandchildren Chad Jr. and Elizabeth.

For many years, Phyllis and Maurice enjoyed camping in their small motor home and spent several winters in Florida escaping together the winters of Maine.


After Maurice’s death, Phyllis lived with her daughter Wendy in Portland and Westbrook. Phyllis’ last months were spent in the loving care of Ledgeview Living Center in West Paris.

Phyllis was a member of the Woodstock Seventh Day Adventist Church and loved her Lord and is now resting until He returns.

Phyllis is survived by her son, Craig, and his wife, Cynthia, of Redford, Mich.; daughter, Wendy, and her friend, Ann, of Westbrook; grandson, Chad, and his wife, Joni, and their children Chad Jr. and Elizabeth of Squim, Wash.; grandson, Christopher, and his wife, Mallory, of Cincinnati, Ohio.; a sister, Janet; several nieces and nephews who all loved Aunt Philly.

She was predeceased by her parents; her brother, Derwood; and her life mate, Maurice.

A full and divine description of Phyllis can be found in the Bible book of Proverbs, chapter 31, verses 10-31. Please read it and remember Phyllis.

Goodnight, Mom. We’ll see you in The Morning.
