Christel (Bunny) Ann Morgan, 77, of Twisp, passed away peacefully at home early Thursday morning June 15, 2023, after a lengthy and courageous battle with Corticobasal Syndrome, a rare brain disease.
She was born on Jan. 2, 1946, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Calvin C. and Christel J. Morgan. Bunny graduated from Jordan High School in Sandy, Utah, and attended college in Utah and Washington.

She volunteered as a Primary Representative for the Methow Valley watershed planning unit, Beaver Creek Stream Patrolman under the Washington State Department of Ecology, Methow Valley Canal Association, and the Mike Utley Foundation.
Bunny had a fearless and adventurous spirit. She loved to explore, never taking the same road twice, through travel or in life. Her greatest joys included large gardens, endless genres of music, raising her animals with the primary effort going towards her sheep and producing award winning wool, was an avid reader, and an amazing cook where no one ever left hungry. Bunny was a poet, artist, conservationist, and devoted constitutionalist.
Bunny is survived by her loving children LaVon (Dan) Newby, Danielle (Mike) Utley, Joshua (Joan) Morgan, brother Paul (Mary) Minardi; and four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Along with her extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother Mike (Anna) Morgan.
