Shirley was born in Elgin, North Dakota to Bill and Leona Suko on June 24, 1947. She was the middle sibling of five sisters, Dottie, Carol, Mary, and Beverly. As a young girl, the family moved to Custer, South Dakota in the heart of the Black Hills, near Mount Rushmore. After graduating high school in Custer, she attended Cosmetology School in Rapid City, South Dakota. During this time, she met Charles Kenneth Morgan, who was stationed nearby at Ellsworth Air Force Base. They were soon married, and after Charlie’s hitch in the Air Force, they moved and made a home in Palmetto, Florida. Together they farmed strawberries with Charlie’s family for a couple of years and in this time, Charlie started splicing telephone cable. They decided to leave the farming life and over the next 10 years Shirley moved with Charlie and the kids all over the south east and mid west., and with his work, they moved to many states. Shirley and Charlie chose to keep the family together by living in a 35 foot travel trailer. In 1981, they moved to Bryan, Texas and bought a house that Shirley called home until her passing. During these years Shirley worked at Clothworld which later became Joann’s Fabrics. She worked there for over 20 years.
