May 25, 1951 - September 6, 2021
Well, Heaven, you picked up another great one this week. Although all of our hearts are reeling here after the loss of our mother, sister, friend and Nana, we are happy to know that she is home with her husband and mother and all the other beautiful hearts that were waiting for her and watching over her. On Monday, September 6, 2021, Barbara Ann Morse passed away peacefully at the age of 70. She was born May 25, 1951 in Cape Girardeau to the late William Scott and Anita Burgess Jordan, and we were so happy to have celebrated her 70th birthday with her earlier this year. We would have attached a picture of that celebration, but Nana was well-known for never stopping talking while pictures were being taken, and we will cherish all those goofy pictures at home for years to come. She left far too soon, as did her husband Randy, who passed away October 7, 2014. Both of these losses came to us on days that the Cardinals were playing the Dodgers, so please feel free to hate the Dodgers even more than you may have already. Barb lived through her heart, and all who sat side by side with her at La Croix Church from the days that we showed up in the movie theater in the mall to the congregation you know now can attest to her love and faith. For many years she worked as a special education assistant for Cape Central Middle School as well, as she never met a child she didn’t love with all her heart. She is deeply missed by her son, Erik (Andrea) Morse and grandchildren, Oliver and Amelia; daughter, Emily (Paulina) Levaggi; brother, William Scott (Brenda) Jordan, II; sisters, Bonny L. Kalb, Angie (Jeff) Schott and Annette Marie (David) Emmons; sister-in-law, Sandee (Don) Burton; numerous nieces and nephews. Barb didn’t sit down to relax very often. She was always moving around and would keep up with anyone. For so many years, all of her friends in her cycling classes at the gym kept a smile on her face and brought so much joy and love to her heart. That empty bike will be a hard one to fill. But it was no mystery to anyone that her favorite time was spent with her siblings, nieces and nephews and especially her grandchildren, Ollie and Millie. There will never be another Nana like this one. Private graveside services will be held for family, and she will be laid to rest next to Randy at Cape County Memorial Park Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers memorials may be given to New Life Advance International, Designated to Guatemala/Rob Mehner, 10701 Corporate Drive, Stafford, Texas 77477 or you may visit and donate online at www.nlai.org.
