Maggie Elizabeth Morris, being blessed with 94 years of age, entered the Kingdom of Heaven on Thursday, November 23, 2023, at the Letcher Manor Nursing Home in Whitesburg, Kentucky.

She was born in Lynch, Kentucky, on March 27, 1929, to the union of Lawrence Tinsley and Cleo Gist.  She graduated in 1947, from the Lynch Colored High School, where she was proud to be a "Pirate".  She lived most of her life in Chicago, Illinois, where she was a retired secretary for Sears and Roebuck Company and a member of the A.M.E.
