1921 ˜ 2021

Edith (Edie) Morris, 99, of Vancouver, WA, passed away April 10, 2021. She was born in Waterbury, CT, to Antonio and Angelina Serra. She is survived by her children, Angela (Steve), Thomas, John (Patty), and Mary Margaret (Michael); and grandchildren, John (Lezlee), James (Jennifer), Jessica, Erika (Jeff), Jillian, Cooper, Reece, and Gage. She is also survived by her brother, Delfino (Dell) Serra; and many nieces and nephews who she loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, her husband of 73 years, Ernest Lee Morris; her son, Anthony Lee Morris; her sisters, Margaret and Leonetta; and her brothers, Ernest, Adolph (Gino), John, and Paris (Jerry).
In addition to raising five children, Edie had a successful career in retail at Sears, Target, and Liberty House. She was a savvy shopper who refused to pay full price and always looked like a million bucks. Her husband’s work for the US Department of Fish and Wildlife brought the family to many new cities. Edie made a home wherever she went. Her buoyant and playful spirit attracted many friends.
Edie was an avid gardener who scattered and sowed beauty wherever she went. She enjoyed Scrabble, daily word searches, reading, and old cowboy movies. She also loved music, dancing and telling stories of her childhood in Connecticut. Edie was fearless. She tackled projects and problems with unmatched determination.
A special thank you to Peace Health Southwest Medical Center, Kaiser Hospice Care, and her longtime physician Dr. Gow Lee, for the excellent and compassionate care she received.
