Jongela Patrice Morgan, mother, wife, diva, fashion goddess and woman with a heart of gold, passed on May 30, 2015. Jongela was born in Vicksburg, MS to Jaqueline Smith (now Ford) on September 27, 1963. And even then, family and friends knew that she was a force to be reckoned with. As everyone knows, Jongela had no problem expressing how she felt. Though she may say to you you look a hot mess (out of love of course), she would still use the same voice to defend and speak up for you when you needed it Jongela worked as a CTA Bus Operator from 2001-2010, but her favorite job was being a devoted mother and wife to her two daughters and husband .Some of her favorite passions were poetry, shopping, going on vacations, watching movies, winning arguments and creating wonderful memories. She loved to sing and dance, so much that she often would grab the mic (aka her remote control) and challenge her family members to on the spot singing and dance competitions. Of course, she ALWAYS won.What was most important to her was family time. She always felt that no matter what happens in life, you should always be there for your family. Holidays and birthdays were her favorite, especially Christmas. Not because of the food she ate or the gifts she received. It was because of the memories created, time spent with the ones she loved and a chance to give unselfishly to others.No matter what time of day, she would always lend a listening ear. No matter how much money she had, she would give her last. No matter what pain she was going through, she would put it to the side and be there for anyone who needed her. She was a therapist,protector, teacher, drill Sargent, hair stylist, bank teller, problem solver, magician (remember the cars and watermelon, lol), cook, photographer, choreographer, professional cuddler, comedian and so much more. She was the jack of all trades Jongela was a brave soul. Strong-willed and a fighter. She was superhero, especially to her daughters who looked up to her very dearly. She was an inspiration to so many people; a superwoman. She will be missed, but never forgotten. She has touched the hearts of everyone she encountered. Heavily imprinted in our souls, her memory will continue to live on for eternity Jongela is survived by her two daughters Jamika and Jataiya Logan; her husband Eric Morgan; mother and stepfather Jaqueline and Willie Ford. She also had a brother,John Smith and a sister Jolanda Smith. She had nieces and nephews named Jeron Polk, Jaquirha Smith-McCoy, Aaron Dixon and Javon Smith.
