Obituary

VERNON, CT - Dorothy Klee Morganson, 95, of Vernon died peacefully following a brief illness on Saturday, April 10, 2021. She was the beloved mother of Ann O’Brien of Boston, MA, and of Dwight Morganson, deceased in infancy. She is survived by Barbara Hoffman of Stafford Springs, CT, as well as by many nieces and nephews.

Born in Ellington to parents Fred and Mabel Klee on January 24, 1926, she was one of six children who grew up on the family dairy farm. Her twin sister Doris, as well as sisters Alice, Pearl and brother Bill have all predeceased her. In her childhood days, she accompanied her father each morning on the milk route via horse-drawn wagon. After graduating from Rockville High School, Dorothy and Doris worked skillfully as secretaries in Hartford. In 1946 Dorothy met Richard Morganson, who had returned from his war years in China. They married in 1947 and were together until Richard’s death in 2002. Doris met and fell in love with Richard’s brother Harold, and they too were wed. The two couples were great friends and travel companions. Summers often featured vacations together at Hawk’s Nest Beach in Old Lyme. All four developed a fondness for golf. Dorothy and Richard took many annual trips to Bermuda along with other members of the Twin Hills Golf Club. After Ann graduated from high school, Dorothy began working as a teller at People’s Bank. She received numerous promotions, ending her 25-year career as Assistant Vice President. She would often speak of how she loved serving the public.

Born into the Episcopal Church, she was a life-long communicant of St. John’s in Vernon, where she served on the Altar Guild for over 60 years. Dorothy was active in many community activities. She delivered Meals On Wheels for over 20 years, and was an faithful supporter of the Vernon Garden Club.

Donations in her memory may be made to St. John’s Church in Vernon CT.
