February 11, 2022by SealeUser5

May 17, 1936 ~ February 10, 2022

Mary (Betty) Morris is survived by her beloved husband James Alvin Morris of nearly 67 years; her sons Russell Morris(Kathleen), Ricky Morris (Evelyn), and daughter Pamela (Jeffery) Morris-Robinson; her brother Advell Ricks and sisters Evelyn Lawrence and Shirley King; grandchildren Kelli(Steve), Brandy, Justin ( Ruth), Kimmithy (Shane), Lindsey, James (Maria) , Jessica (Travis), Tracie (Clay); great grandchildren, Mary, Brayden, Beau, Emma, Montana, Lyla, Lane, Savannah, Kye, Merredith, Isabelle, Axel, Emery, and Austin.

She is precedence in death by her parents, Adnell and Rosa Nell Ricks; brother Charles Ricks, and grandson Cody Robinson.

“MaMa Betty” was one of the kindest, goofiest, and loving souls you’d ever come across. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to no end.

 

She was our favorite story teller, the biggest hugger, and mostly our favorite cook. She loved to be on the water with her husband and loved even more to be able to share their catch on Sundays with her family. She always had silly jokes and spoke her opinion as honestly and open as anyone could.

 

We will all forever miss her famous recipes, her corny jokes and long stories, her garage sale trinkets, her singing, and her ability to see the good in everything and every situation. Her cup was definitely more than half full.

 

She never failed to tell us how proud she was of us.  She made each of us feel special in our own way and never let any of us feel left out. She loved her family hard.

 

PaPa said it perfectly, “I guess you could say we had an old-fashioned love.” We are so very blessed and thankful to have that kind of love in our lives with her.

“Those dearest to us never really leave, they live on in the way they cared, shared, and make us happy” Mama 1/1/13

We know she is resting peacefully and taking care of our lost loved ones. Sleep tight MaMa, and don’t you let the bedbug’s bite. ❤️

    To the Family: I am the youngest daughter of Bennie Ricks, your cousin. I had the privilege of visiting with Betty on several occasions as a child and later on at various family gatherings. What I remember most is her love for family and her beautiful smile. I am deeply sorry for your loss. In prayers.

    To the family, I am so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. She was so sweet when I knew her growing up in the country with her siblings, especially Shirley, Advell and Charles. We were all so close back then. Her cousin, Carroll
