Lynne & I have been friend's for 50+ years. I moved to Florida 33 years ago, yet we managed to stay in contact. She remained my best friend and confidant . I can see that Lynne has touched many lives. She was an inspiration to many. She has proven to be the strongest women I know. She loved her family with all her heart and would do anything for them, this she proved over the last several months. She fought

My heart is very deeply saddened by the loss of my former professor at Wayne State University. I learned so much from her in the two semesters I had. She always stayed positive given her unfortunate circumstances. I'll never forget the time spent in her class and how she would stay after class to help me understand content better. She was a wonderful professor and person. She was a true asset to WSU. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Rest In Peace professor Morgan-Bernard.

Lynne loved teaching and her students, and it showed every single day. She poured so much time and care into supporting her students in becoming wonderful teachers. Lynne positively impacted the lives of so very many children by helping educators be ready to teach reading well. Lynne was deeply compassionate and caring to students and colleagues... and I suspect everyone she met. Lynne will be deeply missed.

I had the honor of taking Dr. Morgan's classes for 3 semesters at Wayne State University. She was brilliant and kind and will always be one of my favorite professors. I remember on the last day of class, I thanked her for everything and she said to keep in touch to let her know how I was doing. I always looked forward to her classes and am so saddened to hear of her passing. She talked fondly of her family often in class, especially her grandchildren. My thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort to her family.

Lynne was an incredibly influential force in my life. I will never forget the moment it seemed my professional dreams seemed to be fading--on one particular day, she knew I was going to come right to see her in her office. She was already there, waiting for me with colleagues in the education department. Lynne was an extraordinary leader. Her compassion and ambition emboldened me, because I could expect nothing less of myself if I wanted to experience success; Lynne

I was sorry to hear that Lynne passed away. She was a co-worker at Baker and friend for many years. We shared many stories about our kids and our lives in general. We even were chemo buddies. We both were fighting cancer at the same time and met for lunch sporting our wigs and sharing our stories. She was a fighter and an encourager to others fighting. She will be sorely missed. I am so sorry I will be out of town for the service but my prayers will be the family.

Thank you for the two years of wonderful conversation. Thank you for helping me mature into a Reading Specialist, and a great mother to RJ. Your stories of your son, truly helped me. God has gained a beautiful angel. To your family, my prayers are with you.
