       Virginia M. Morgan, a longtime resident of Amagansett, died on Jan. 2 at the Levine and Dickson Hospice House in Huntersville, N.C. She was 104.

       Ms. Morgan was born in Amagansett on Dec. 26, 1909, to Raymond Gardiner See and the former Pauline Edwards. She lived for 91 years on Atlantic Avenue and attended the Amagansett School and East Hampton High School. She worked for many years as a housekeeper for Dr. Huntington Sheldon, who owns the Joshua B. Edwards property on Atlantic Avenue.

       Among Ms. Morgan’s favorite pursuits were flower gardening, jigsaw puzzles, and feeding birds, according to Dee Renos of East Hampton, a family friend. “She was very sharp, and very funny, right until the end,” Ms. Renos said.

       Ms. Morgan moved to Huntersville at the age of 91 to be closer to her family. Two daughters, Ginger Whorf of Rockville, Md., and Pamela D’Oria of Huntersville, 5 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren survive.

       A private service was held by Ms. Morgan’s family, which has suggested contributions to the Levine and Dickson Hospice House, 11900 Vanstory Drive, Huntersville, N.C. 28078.
