|Here is the obituary that ran in the newspaper. The service arrangements are in the last paragraph. I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you who have given time, finances, letters, hugs and those who have given of yourself. We cannot fully express how much we appreciate all the help that was given to our family. So many people have cleaned our kitchen, wiped mom's mouth, washed our laundry, encouraged us with notes, fed us, loved us. Most of all, you treated mom with respect and dignity during her battle with ALS. Mom has been taken too early in our minds, but we trust that her days were numbered by the Lord and He was in complete control of her life. We also trust that He is in control of our lives and that He will lead and guide us through life, even without our mother and wife. While no one will be able to replace Mom in our lives, the Lord has proven Himself faithful thus far, and we know that He won't stop now.
Cynthia Morrisett Coleman, 58, of Richmond, Virginia went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 18, 2015. The Lord richly blessed the last two years of her life with her family and friends by her side as she bravely fought ALS. She is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, Morton Morgan, and her seven children, Mary Ruth, Morgan Morton, Emily Dawn, David Stephen, Susannah Joy Noakes (Joshua), Abigail Warr and Phoebe Elizabeth. Also surviving are her father and mother, J. Stephen and Jean Dawn Morrisett of Richmond, her siblings, Michael (Jan) of Virginia Beach, Richard of Austin and Diana Painter (Don) of Tampa, her uncle Joel Morrisett (Mary) of Houston, aunt Rebecca Causby (David) of Shelby, NC as well as other cousins and relatives. She was preceded in death by her uncle Peter Morrisett of Kingsport.
Cindy and Mort were married on September 17, 1978 and committed their lives to the Lord. Her faithfulness to the Lord and her love for others was evident in all she did in the home, the community and the local fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters. Cindy served her children and friends through home education, she taught Sunday School, volunteered at Surreywood Swim Club, and cheered on her family at countless sporting events and recitals. Well-loved, funny, cheerful and a good friend, Cindy will be very missed.
The family will receive visitors Monday, April 20, 2015 from 2-4PM and 6-8PM at Bliley's Chippenham Chapel, 6900 Hull Street Road, Richmond, Virginia 23224. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 3PM at 4424 Huguenot Road, Richmond, Virginia 23235 following a private interment. In lieu of flowers, you may make donations to your local chapter of the ALS Association or MDA in memory of Cindy.
