Leotia graduated from Waco High School in 1939 and married Dan Morgan in 1940. She was a loving wife, mother and Granny to all. She was a faithful servant of the Lord.

At Christmas she would bake and make goodies for her care packages to take special ones. Throughout the year she loved to bake and decorate cakes and did so for many special occasions and weddings. Leotia was a person of many talents. She loved to sew and quilt. She made every grandchild a GingerBread Boy quilt. As her children were growing up, she was involved in Boy Scouts, Campfire, little league baseball, PTA. Leotia and Dan were members of the Order of Eastern Star for over 50 years.
