Myralyn Manon Morrow-Fields, age 86 of Farmington, New Mexico passed away on Wednesday August 2, 2023. She was born on June 19, 1937 in Archer City, Texas to William A. and Elsie Tanner where she was raised, attended and graduated from High School.
Manon's journey through life was defined by resilience, versatility, and a deep love for her family. She met and married Joe Morrow in 1954 and together they welcomed seven sons into the world. In pursuit of new opportunities, they relocated to Farmington, New Mexico in the mid-1960s.
While residing in Farmington, Manon put her remarkable work ethic to use at Piggly Wiggle grocery store as a checker. Not one to shy away from any challenge that came her way, she also took on numerous responsibilities at Joe Morrow Drilling Co., serving as an office manager, bookkeeper, parts chaser, and more.
In 1980, Joe and Manon ventured to Moline, Kansas, where they established and operated a successful business centered around oil wells. Tragedy struck in 1988 when Joe passed away, leaving behind a legacy of determination and dedication.
To honor her husband's memory, Manon sold their accumulated property and relocated to Archer City, Texas to be closer to her beloved mother, Elsie.
It was in Archer City that Manon crossed paths with L.C. Fields, a man who would become her second husband. Inseparable since their wedding in 2001, the couple found happiness in Bloomfield, NM.
Manon's vivacious spirit filled every corner of her life. She had a passion for crocheting and enjoyed spending time at yard sales and auctions with L.C., transforming their treasures into cherished finds for others at the local flea market. Her warmth and genuine kindness welcomed strangers to become friends, and her boundless love for her family knew no bounds.
On this day, as we grieve the loss of Manon, we find solace knowing that her memory will forever hold a place in our hearts. She was preceded in death by her husband's Joe Morrow and Leasel (L.C.) Fields, her son Charles Roscoe Morrow, grandchildren Kristy Willis and Kevin Morrow, brothers Bobby D., William A., and Charles A. Tanner, as well as sisters Ima Reid and Lily Jo Johnson.
Left to cherish her memory are her sons Jim (Tracey), Mike, Vic (Teresa), Pete (Regina), Cecil (Judy), and Tommy Morrow. Through them, her legacy lives on. Manon adored her grandchildren Brittany, Justin, Derek, Michael, Klint, Kyle, Zach, Heather, Casey, Brianna, Brandie, Jessica, Amanda TJ, Rose, Lena and RJ., who affectionately called her Granny. Additionally,
she leaves behind 24 great-grandchildren who brought immense joy to her life.
In addition to her family, Manon is survived by numerous nieces and nephews who held a special place in her heart.
Manon's wishes were that she be cremated, and a memorial service will be held at a later date to honor her remarkable life. Her final resting place will be the Archer City Cemetery in Archer City, Texas, where she will find eternal peace.
