Sarah Christine Ruff Morris, 96, of Pomaria, widow of Anderson Ashe Morris, Sr. died on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at White Oak Manor after a brief illness.

Born on May 9, 1922 in Pomaria, she was the daughter of the late Raymond Isadore Ruff and Dorothy Smith Ruff. She retired from Shakespeare after 20 years. She was a life-long member of St. Matthews Lutheran Church. She was a former member of the 55+ at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church where she enjoyed their fellowship.

She is also survived by her loving cat and companion, Kitty. She was predeceased by a brother, Ray Eugene Ruff.

Mrs. Morris enjoyed gardening and working with her flowers and yard. She was a generous person and touched many lives with her kindness. We thank God for the gift of Sarah Christine (also known as “Bete” and “Sister”) and we praise Him for His glory which receives her today into His tender care.
