Daisy Marion Morgan (1908 – 1998)

My much loved maternal grandmother, Daisy Marion Morgan was  born on the 10th of August 1908 at Moyhu in North East Victoria.

Daisy was the second daughter of William Thomas Morgan and Ada May nee Hulme.

Her eldest sister, Clarice May, was born 23rd September 1905 also at Moyhu.  After Daisy came Ellen “Mavis” who was born on the 29th of October 1910 and Lila Elaine born 23 Feb 1913.

Then finally a boy came along, Herbert William Morgan was born on the 21st of October 1926.  Grandma and Granddad Morgan must have thought they were never going to have a boy as all the girls had boys nicknames!

Clarice was known as “Tod”.  Daisy was known as “Billy”

Ellen “Mavis” was known as “Bobby” and Lila was known as “Johnny”.

I only ever heard Nanna’s sisters referred to as Aunty Tod, Aunty Bobby and Aunty Johnny.

Daisy married my grandfather, Archibald William Finlay Fleming, on the 8th of October 1932 at “Willow Bank”,  her parents home  at Moyhu.

They had 4 children the third being my Mum, Amelia Joan (1937-2012)

Daisy and Archie were married for 45 devoted years.  Archie departed this life in 1977 and Daisy passed away on the 2nd of December 1998 at the good age of 90 years.
