Tribute & Message From The Family

Mrs. Betty McCants Morgan was born in 1937 in Florence, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Mr. Lonnie McCants, Sr. and Mrs. Hannah Abraham McCants. She departed this life on Friday, January 23, 2015 at Heritage Home of Florence, SC. Betty attended the public schools of Florence County and graduated from Wilson High School in 1955. She received a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from Francis Marion College (now University) in 1981. She was formerly employed with the Social Security Administration as a Service Representative, from which she retired. Betty was happily married to the love of her life, Johnnie Morgan from 1990 until 2010. They had a true love affair as well as a strong spiritual relationship and a real friendship. She was very happy to be his wife and they were devoted to each other. Johnnie and Betty worked hard to make their blended family a strong unit and they all shared many good times together. Betty also had a very special relationship with her daughter, Robin. They were very close as mother and daughter and very close as friends. She was very devoted to her entire family. She and her brothers and sisters enjoyed a close relationship all throughout their lives, which continued throughout her illness. She was always seeking out the best for her loved ones but she was known for "speaking her mind and saying what needed to be said." She shared words of wisdom that were welcomed by her family and friends. Betty was a member of Sumter West Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. Her primary concern was her relationship with her creator Jehovah God. She spent countless hours volunteering in the Door-to-Door Ministry assisting people to learn the truth of the Bible about her creator Jehovah and his son Jesus. She wanted people to know about her hope of the resurrection and also her hope about paradise life soon to come here on earth (Rev 21:3-4). In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her loving husband, Johnnie Morgan and one brother, Lonnie McCants, Jr. Left to cherish her love and memories are: one daughter, Robin Adams of Charlotte, NC; two step daughters, Lisa (Alex) Alexander and Toni (Stephen) Washington, both of Sumter, SC; five grandchildren, Nathaniel (Deidre) Adams of Charlotte, NC, Cameron (Seth) McCurty of Fort Washington, MD, Brittany Adams of Charlotte, NC, Sherelle (Germaine) Mack of Sumter, SC, and Stephen (Keturah) Washington of Charleston, SC; two great grandchildren, Ace and Ayden Adams; two sisters, Alberta (Leroy) Durant and Jane Bonds; one brother, Maxie (Roberta) McCants; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Betty will truly be missed by her family and she will be in their hearts always.


Condolence & Memory Journal

I am looking forward to meeting my dear sister in the New World. She seemed to have been a very loving person. No doubt you miss her terribly. What a comfort to know it's only a temporary absence. Until then, May Jah keep you wrapped snuggly in his loving arms of comfort.

To the Morgan & McCants families,

The Souls of the just are in the hands of Jehovah (God), the Creator of all things, and no torment can touch them.

They seemed in the view of the foolish to be dead and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us utter destruction......But, they are simply at peace......

My deepest sympathy on your loss. I'm sure she & my dad are reunited now.

To the Family of Aunt Betty, I offer my deepest sympathy. Aunt Betty was a wonderful caring and spiritual woman. Knowing her was a privilege and a delight. She was wise and kind and loving. She will be missed but not for long. Her faith was strong and her hope secure. We will see her in the very near future when she is resurrected. Until then we will let the memories we have of her sustain us. Love to you all!A

I didn't know Sister Morgan. Even so I feel as if she was family. We are both one of Jehovah's servant and we both began our lives in Florence, South Carolina. May her family and friend take comfort in knowing that one day soon, we are going to see her again. 1 John 5:13 "I write you these things so that you may know that you have life everlasting, you who put your faith in the name of the Son of God." She's just sleeping. When she awaken, she will be in paradise.
Your Spiritual Sister

Aunt Betty, as I've always known her will be affectionately missed. In my heart she will always remain one of one of the wisest women that I have ever known. She touched the heart of all had the privilege of knowing her. Her spiritually was something to be admired and imitated because it was so strong and deep for her God Jehovah. She instilled that same love in her family. My hope is to see her again when Jehovah wakens her in the resurrection into a beautiful paradise here on earth. My love and condolences..Rhoda Nelson

I will cherish the wonderful memories I have of my life with my mother. She was a joy and inspiration to me. She never stop pushing me to be the best possible me I could be. Her warm loving spirit, her kind manner, her love of people, her words of wisdom and her love and zeal for her creator, Jehovah God, made her so very special.

I will miss her so very much but I am thankful she is now at peace. No more sickness and pain. Through our mutual hope in the promised resurrection, I now look forward to our reunion.
