January 9, 2017

13, at 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Hartselle with Bro. Charles
Shaddix officiating, Gary Long presenting the eulogy and Peck Funeral Home
Burial was in Hartselle City Cemetery.
Mrs. Hart died Mon., Jan. 9, 2017, at Decatur Morgan Hospital. She
was born Sept. 15, 1925, in Jefferson County to Richard Leonard Reid and
Ethel Lezora (Mitchell) Reid. She was a faithful Christian and loved the
Lord and served Him throughout her 60 plus year membership at First Baptist
Church of Hartselle, where she enjoyed Pryme Tymers, choir and
traveling with the Senior Adults. Her servant heart reached into her
community through membership with the American Legion Auxiliary and
volunteered at the Caring Place and Priceville Elementary School. She
enjoyed playing bridge, square dancing and gardening. She was an avid
sports fan and loved the Crimson Tide and the Atlanta Braves. Her greatest
joy was family. Whether hosting 70 or more in her home for Thanksgiving or
just visiting with a few of her children, nothing in this world made her
happier. She was the owner of Morton T.V. and Appliance prior to retiring.
She was preceded in death by her husbands, James Lonnie Morton and Willis L.
She is survived by three sons, Greg Morton (Diana) of Falkville, Conrad Morton (Lisa) of Priceville and Ronny Morton (Regina) of Collierville, Tenn.; a daughter, Judy Tedford (Steve) of Gulf Shores; two brothers, Alvin Reid (Lee) of Wilsonville and Tommy Reid (Freeda) of Adamsville; a sister, Lucy Hill of Hope Hull; eight grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers were Jonathan Morton, Terry Reid, Richard Reid, Joey Reid,
Ryan Miller, Jay Morris, Matthew Soukup and Judy Tedford.
A very special thank you to Dr. Scott A. Matthews, surgeons Dr. Harney and Dr. Walker, Decatur Morgan Hospital nurses and assistance, Hospice of the Valley, The Terrace of Priceville and First Baptist Church Hartselle and the host of family and friends whose prayers, cards, visits and gifts have sustained us through this journey.
