Wilma Morgan was born in Los Angeles on September 19, 1906, the youngest of four siblings. She graduated from Occidental College in 1928 and taught elementary school for a period thereafter.
In the 1970’s and 1980’s she enjoyed traveling through historic places in America and Europe. She never stopped studying about her favorite spots in Britain, and Charles Dickens became her favorite author long before she ever set foot in Britain.
Wilma’s life was marked by a vibrant love for Jesus Christ and a desire to serve him. For 40 years, she was an active supporter of San Gabriel Community Church and the Fuller Theological Seminary Auxiliary. Many Fuller students and missionaries from all over the world enjoyed her hospitality and support. In fact, over the years, students and visitors from more than fourteen countries were the recipients of her hospitality as she graciously opened her home for them.
For 65 years, generations of neighbors counted her as a dear friend. Wilma’s faith in the Lord was exemplified in her love and care for her family and friends. She was a beloved mother and friend.
Wilma passed away in October 2001 and is survived by her son Grant and his wife Sue.
Each year, recipients of this generous scholarship are selected through the SGCS financial assistance program.
The Wilma Morgan Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 with the intent of giving students with financial need the opportunity to receive the highest quality education in an environment that encourages the development of committed followers of Jesus Christ.
This scholarship allows us to further the ministry of San Gabriel Christian School and will allow future generations of students the opportunity to attend our exceptional school.
