>> July 9, 1928 – January 4, 2018 <<
Helga Morgan, 89, lost her battle with Alzheimer’s and passed away
peacefully in Lake Havasu City. She was born July 9, 1928, in
Nuremberg, Germany. The daughter of Fritz and Martha Voit.
As a teenager, she survived the bombings of British and American
troops during World War II by seeking shelter with her family in the
cellar of their home which is still standing to this day.
She met Ed Morgan Sr., in 1950 while he was serving in the U.S. Army.
They fell in love in Germany and later married in 1952 when he brought
Helga to America. They had their first child, Ed Morgan Jr., in 1961
and adopted their infant daughter Heidi Morgan in 1965.
In 1970, the family moved to Danville, California where Ed Morgan Sr.,
built their dream home where she enjoyed raising many pets, and farm
Helga enjoyed many things in life, especially raising her two
children. Helga was talented at oil painting and did many beautiful
pictures. Helga divorced in 1982 and traveled extensively with her
friends going on cruises and back to Germany to see family and
friends. Helga remarried in 1999 and moved to Ramona, California, and
then to Lake Havasu City in 2007. Helga was a very loving and caring
person and always had a hug and an “I love you” to us kids while we
were growing up. She is sorely missed.
Helga was preceded in death by her parents, Fritz and Martha Voit, her
sister Else and her brother Harald Voit.
She is survived by her loving son Ed Morgan, (Dana) daughter Heidi
Morgan and brother Horst Voit (Annalie), grandchildren, James Morgan,
Melissa Morgan, Donnie Henriques and two great-grandchildren Lillian

wife, God’s Friendly Helpers Adult Home and Hospice of Havasu.
