Lorraine Beus Morgan

of Burley, Idaho
Born: September 1, 1944 in Ogden, Utah
Died: October 11, 2012 in Logandale, Nevada
Age: 68 years old

Burley, Idaho – Lorraine Beus Morgan, age 68, of Burley, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, in Logandale, Nevada, while visiting her son and daughter.

Lorraine was born in Ogden, Utah, on Sept. 1, 1944, the daughter of Dean Ezra and Alice Elaine (Stettler) Beus. Her family moved to Kuna, Idaho, when she was 14 and she graduated from Kuna High School in 1962. She married Lynn Morgan (her high school sweetheart) on Sept. 14, 1964, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They lived in the Kuna area until they moved their young family to Burley in 1975.

Lorraine started a day care in 1980 which she ran out of her home. In 1994, they built Lorraine’s Day Care – which she owned and operated until 2002. She helped raise and touch the lives of many children and their parents in the community.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many callings in the church. She served in the Primary, Young Women, and Relief Society many times over. Her most recent callings were Den mother, nursery leader, and visiting teacher. Lorraine and her husband, Lynn, served faithfully as missionaries in Pocatello, the Ukraine, and in the South Africa Johannesburg Mission, serving in Botswana’s satellite office.

Her life revolved around her husband, her children, and her grandchildren. She was a wonderful example of service and Christ-like love throughout her life to all she met. Our wife, mother, grannie, and friend will be missed, but we know that her legacy will live forever.

Lorraine is survived by her eternal companion, Lynn Morgan of Burley; her children, Lori McCracken (Ivan) and Sherrie Greener (Barney) all of Burley, Cindy McMurray (David) of Logandale, Nevada, Mike Morgan (Diana) of Overton, Nevada, Harold Morgan (Susan) and Roger Morgan (Shaundalee) all of Burley, Kricket Barnum (Garrett) of Portland, Oregon, and Bryce Morgan (Melissa) of Burley; 37 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; her parents, Dean and Elaine Beus of Kuna; and her siblings, Steve Beus (Becky) of Kuna, Stan Beus (Jan) of Nampa, Lynn Beus (Cyndy) of Kimberly, Shane Beus (Liz) of Kuna, and Lana Nielson (Rick) of Mesa, Washington.

She was preceded in death by her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Cecil and Leanida Morgan.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Burley LDS Stake Center, 2050 Normal Ave., in Burley, with Bishop Mark Mabey officiating. Burial will be in the Pleasant View Cemetery.

Friends may call from 6 until 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Rasmussen Funeral Home, 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley, and from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the church.

We were saddened to hear about Sis. Morgan, what an elect lady. Our time was short in JoBurg/Bots, but such a joy to get to know you both and share that time together. Our thoughts are with you and hope to see you again.

I was shocked to hear of her passing. It seems like I just visited with her not too long ago at the Temple. I relly enjoyed her. Hope you're doing well. My deepest sympathy to your families. Diane Todd (A friend from the Temple)
