Morgin Taylor Rasmussen was born December 22, 1997 in New Ulm. She dearly enjoyed attending the Sleepy Eye Elementary and New Ulm Public High School’s where many wonderful memories were made. Her love of people was evident her entire life. Simply being near people, reading books, hearing their voices, watching the Wheel of Fortune, or cuddling up next to them brought her the greatest comfort and joy in life. Although Morgin was born with heart complications which she courageously battled her entire life, she managed to touch so many lives around her. These precious memories of Morgin will forever stay in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Blessed be her memory.
