Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
I miss my mom everyday, but some days, like mother’s day, my heart just aches for just a few more minutes with her. My mom, Pearl Elizabeth Morgan, died in March of 2005. She was 79 years old an only child of Robert Lee and Grace Day who resided in Sykesville, Maryland.
I hardly know her story. I know she grew up in Sykesville, MD. Pearl, a fitting name for such a beautiful, classy woman, became a secretary and worked in Baltimore for a time and later moved on to a job at the Board of Child care if memory serves me correctly.
Pearl married my dad, Ralph Morgan in the late 50’s I believe. She became a troopers wife and mother of two, myself and my older brother Dave. We lived in a little rancher in Randallstown that was impeccably clean and appointed with all the necessities. It was across the street from the elementary school my brother and I attended. Just a short drive for her and Daddy to work. Mom at this point was working at the Baltimore County General Hospital as a secretary in the Social Work department.
In the mid 70’s we moved to a bigger rancher in Sykesville where mom and dad lived until she passed away. Kind of an abrupt end to my short story about mom but I hope to learn more about my mom's story and her family. Now that my children are grown and we are counting down the days for my youngest, Claire, to graduate high school I’ve had more time to myself. This photo of my mom from 1936. This Mother’s Day weekend I plan to explore more about my mom. A gift I am giving myself. Happy Mother’s Day!
