Roberta Pauline Morgan

NEW WINDSOR, Md. — Roberta Pauline Morgan, 82, of New Windsor, Md., formerly of Corunna, Ind., Geneva, Kingman, Ariz., and many other locales, passed away Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in Meadville after a brief illness.

Roberta was born March 15, 1931, in Corunna, Ind., a daughter of Mina M. Bard Hawk and Curtis F. Hawk. Roberta and her family moved to the Geneva area in 1938, and she graduated from Meadville High School in 1950. She is a 1953 graduate of the former Meadville City Hospital School of Nursing. Following graduation, she practiced nursing in California and Nevada and as part of her continuing education she ultimately earned her master’s degree.

Roberta worshipped at multiple church communities during her life. She began worshipping at Geneva United Brethren Church. She later joined other communities including the Church of the Nazarene in Kingman, Ariz., and more recently Faith Community Bible Church in Westminster, Md.

During her long professional career, she worked at several institutions in many and varied positions including as a supervisor, director of nursing and staff nurse at Folsom Prison. Her interests were varied and included running half marathons after age 50, walking with the family dogs, being outdoors in nature, spending time with her family, and making friends while serving at the Westminster Senior Center. She also loved riding trains, was an avid camper and enjoyed target shooting.

Roberta is survived by her son, Steven Yerger and his wife, Sandra, of New Windsor, and her son, Robert Yerger Hawk of Frederick, Md.; grandchildren, Rebekah Farace and husband, James, Hannah Yerger, Jonathan Yerger and Winter Hawk; numerous nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her sister, Glendora J. Adsit of Conneaut Lake.

In addition to her parents, Roberta was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Ken Morgan, in 2011; and by her brothers, Don Hawk and Darrell Hawk.

Family and friends are invited to call for a memorial service at Faith Geneva Methodist Church on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. Interment will be at Geneva Memorial Cemetery at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations could be made to the Geneva Memorial Cemetery Association, 15340 Church Road, Geneva, Pa. 16316; or to the Conneaut Lake Historical Society, PO Box 425, 150 N. Third St., Conneaut Lake, Pa. 16316.
