It was my humble honor to know "Grandma Pat" for almost three decades. Growing up down the street from her family, she was always a kind, warm, and welcoming face. I can't express how grateful I am for the opportunity to have known her/hers over these years. Pat Morgan was an inspiration to nearly everyone who knew here. She is loved and will forever be missed.

Mrs. Morgan was my instructor at Temple College in 2012 and 2013. She actually was who pinned me upon graduation and the picture taken of that moment is in my living room. She taught me how to be an advocate. She taught me how to preserve a patients dignity in their time of need. She taught me how to be a compassionate nurse. She helped me become a nurse and gave me an opportunity to provide for my family. She was kind when I was struggling in some areas and helped me make it through. I can't tell you how saddened I am right now. The world was a better place with her in it. No telling the amount of people she has touched in her lifetime. What a wonderful woman. Rest easy sweet lady. I will see you again one day. Thank you for what you did for me.
When I think of Pat Morgan, I think of a strong, dedicated Mother, Nurse, Nursing Supervisor, and Friend. I worked with Pat at the Santa Fe Center where everyone was family. I feel truly blessed to have shared an important part of my journey with this wonderful lady. So thankful to the Good Lord for her life and the abundant blessings she brought to this world.

Pat Morgan made a difference in the life of everyone she met. Her students loved her wholeheartedly whether they knew her for 8 weeks or years! She brought sunshine to every room she entered. We always looked forward to seeing Pat appear at our doors in Berry Hall, Temple College, because there was always and smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. She love God most, but UT was a close behind. This awesome woman will be missed on earth by all of us, but will brighten the halls of heaven eternally. Love and peace to her family.

I worked with Pat for many years, and I greatly respected her for how she took control of her life when John died. She continuously advanced in her profession and took care of her family. She is one more of the old "Santa Fe Hospital family" who has passed on.

Pat, may you rest in peace. My heart is deeply aching hearing that you had passed away. You are one of my favorite teacher at Temple College. You're the kindest person I know and even though I only knew you for only a short period of time, you had made a great impact in my life because of your kindness. Thank you for step foot into my life. You shall always be in my heart. God bless you in heaven.

I first met Patricia Morgan when I was working at Cornerstone as a CNA. She would bring her Students there to do their clinicals for CNA. She would always look for me to put some of her students with me. She was such a sweet loving person.
