April 5, 1951 - January 12, 2022
Ann Marie (Nedved) Morgen was born on April 5, 1951 in Yankton, South Dakota, the daughter of Leonard and Frances (Cimpl) Nedved. Surrounded by her family, Ann passed away on January 12, 2022 in Kennewick, Washington. She was 70 years old. Ann was raised on a family farm south of Dante, South Dakota and grew up helping out on the farm with her two older brothers, Gene & Larry, and her younger brother, Jim. Ann attended Ree 62 Country School (a one-room schoolhouse) through 8th grade. She attended high school in Wagner, South Dakota and graduated in 1969. In her teens, Ann participated in Catholic Daughters, student council, F.H.A., cheerleading, basketball, track, and she enjoyed dances at Rest Haven. Ann was united in marriage to Gerald (Gerry) Morgen of Wagner on July 20, 1968 at Assumption Catholic Church in Dante. They moved to Rapid City, South Dakota in 1970, where they lived for seven years. During that time, she worked at JCPenney. The family moved to Kennewick, Washington in August 1977, where they have lived for the past 44 years. Ann worked at Safeway in Kennewick for 30 years. She retired in 2009 as the Front-End Manager. Ann and Gerry have been parishioners of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Kennewick for 44 years. Ann enjoyed gardening, plants & flowers, as well as a huge vegetable garden which produced a large amount of tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, and pumpkins. Ann & Gerry also grew the most delicious cherries and peaches, and Ann is known for her 'famous' peach cake. After she retired, Ann was very involved in her children's and grandchildren's lives, for example by helping Brenda at craft shows, babysitting the grandkids, dog-sitting, and attending as many soccer and volleyball matches as she could. Ann loved to play Pinochle and the card game "65" - also affectionately known as "Count Your Cards Fonda," named after her mother. Ann also enjoyed attending WSU football games, pickle ball and bowling. She especially enjoyed the bowling tournaments and the weekly lunch & cards with "the bowling ladies." Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Frances Nedved, and sister-in-law, Sherrie Nedved.
