Bonnie Lea Coleman Morgan

Bonnie Lea Coleman Morgan, born to the late C.L. and Rosella Coleman on Nov. 14, 1948, was a lifelong resident of Cleveland.

She went to her eternal home to live with Jesus in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2017, surrounded by her loved ones.

Until her health failed, she attended Philippi Bapist Church. She was well known as “Bonnie Fife” at the Tennessee Department of Safety, where she had retired as a driver's license examiner and was always known for her quick wit and great sense of humor.

In addition to her mother and father, she is preceded in death by a son, Anthony (Tony) Morgan; and a grandson, Tyler Meyers.

She is survived by one son, Eric (Sherri) Morgan; three grandsons: Cody, Tanner and Bryar Morgan; two sisters: Elizabeth (Doug) Satterfield and Faye (Paul) Strait; three brothers: Johnny Coleman, Freddie Coleman (Naomi), and Bobby Coleman (Denise); and one longtime friend, Sue Tegels, all of Cleveland; and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends today, Dec. 27, 2017, from 5 to 8 p.m. at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 161 Second St., Cleveland.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 28, 2017, at Philippi Baptist Church, 2484 Harrison Pike, Cleveland, with Dr. Sammy Hooker and the Rev. Ray Cheatham officiating.

The family will also receive friends at Philippi from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday before the service.
