Mrs. Alba Morley of Pinebluff passed away on Friday, September 6, 2019, in FirstHealth Moore Regional at the age of 79.

Mrs. Morley was born in Bridgeport, CT on July 14, 1940, to the late Gene and Antoinette Cocco Sannino. Alba and her husband visited Moore County in the late 1980s and enjoyed the mild winters of the Sandhills and in 1988 decided to call Pinebluff home. She enjoyed riding horses and drag racing with her husband, alternating their time to drive. Her big thrill was “beating the boys” on the drag strip. Alba and George enjoyed 48 years of marriage together. Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Donna Applebee; her brothers, Carl Sannino, Rudy Sannino, and Lenny Sannino.

She leaves behind her husband, George of Pinebluff; her sister in law, Joanne Morley-Folsom and her husband, Gary of Fayetteville; her brother in law, John Morley, Jr. of Fairfield, CT; her nephew, John Morley III of Fairfield, CT and her niece, Regina Tweed of Glendale, AZ.

The family will celebrate Alba’s life at a later time.

Care of the family is entrusted to Crumpler Funeral Home of Aberdeen. Online condolences may be made at
