Morgan
Morgan, beloved family member, died Sunday evening (April 22, 2001) at eight years of age following a short and courageous battle with cancer.

A few years ago, Morgan made headlines in The Sunbury News.

Morgan was called a true heroine after rescuing her "kitty sister" after the cat had been trapped for eight days in a wood pile. The heroic rescue made News headlines.

Morgan had a rewarding career at the Delaware County Fair where she won numerous ribbons along with her owner, Mindy Stoker. She took part in many Sunbury parades as well as the Humane Society's "Mutt Marches."

She was very dedicated to her family as we were to her.

We deeply grieve for the loss of our very special family member. She will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We wish to thank the the Sunbury Veterinary Clinic staff as well as Ann and Lee for all of their compassion and support.

In loving memory of Morgan, please give your pet an extra hug and tell them how much they mean to you.
