Obituary of Mildred Gilmore Morgan
Mildred G. 96, died peacefully on July 12, 2020. Mildred lived at her home in her beloved Cape May Point, NJ prior to moving to a senior care facility. Mildred was formally of Philadelphia and was predeceased by her husband, Ralph Morgan SR. Mildred leaves behind her 3 children and their families, Patricia and Chris Roberts (Kyle/Lindsay and Morgan); Ralph and Claire Morgan (David/Lily/June and Andrew), Karen Williams (Tara and Brett). Mildred re-entered the workforce at the age of 50 and worked for 25 years with the Entomological Society of the Academy of Natural Sciences as the office manager before retirement. Her love and caring for nature and the monarchs in Cape May Point earned her many garden awards. Hundreds of visitors to her garden were inspired over the years including busloads of school children. She would set up her "classroom" outside so that children could see butterflies emerge from chrysalis. Her great-grandchild June Morgan was also a visitor to the garden.
