LACROSSE — Leslie Jo Morgan, 51, passed away Sunday, March 26, 2017, at 12:10 a.m. at Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in Wichita from complications of a brain aneurysm.
Leslie was born July 24, 1965, in LaCrosse, the daughter of Larry Morgan, and Jametta (Peters) Basgall. She was a lifelong resident of LaCrosse. A 1983 graduate of LaCrosse High School, she was a waitress working along side her mom at Four Corner Restaurant in LaCrosse, Kansas, for many years.
Leslie was involved in too many activities to list, but we all know she didn’t know the word no. If you needed something done, you just asked Leslie.
Survivors include her significant other, Sean Key, LaCrosse; two sons, Jerrod Morgan, and his wife, Carrie, Riley; and Jeremy Morgan, LaCrosse; a daughter, Amanda Morgan, and her fiancé, Logan Beard, Manhattan; two stepchildren, Logan Key, Kansas City; and Maddy Key, Hays; a grandson, Brantley Friend Morgan; her father, Larry Morgan, Alexander; her mother and stepfather, Jametta and Melvin Basgall, LaCrosse; three brothers, Cory Morgan, Florida; Todd Basgall, LaCrosse; and Travis Morgan, Salina; a sister, Tonya Basgall, LaCrosse; two nephews, Kolin Basgall and C J Morgan; and two nieces, Alexis Morgan and Adria Morgan. Leslie is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will miss her very much. She was preceded in death by her grandparents; and a grandson, Michael Lee Morgan. Leslie’s pride and joy was her grandson, Brantley, son of Jerrod and Carrie. She was beyond excited for the arrival of baby Morgan in August.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, March 31, at the United Methodist Church in LaCrosse with Pastor Angie Vertz and Pastor Wade Russell officiating. Interment will be in the LaCrosse City Cemetery.
