Daisy Morris PDF Print E-mail

Daisy Elector Minick Morris, 79, of Prosperity, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at her residence on Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Born on January 1, 1941 in Prosperity, she was a daughter of the late LeGrande and Sadie Hawkins Minick. She worked for Old School Manufacturing and Damon International before becoming a full-time homemaker and caregiver. Mrs. Morris was a member of St. Luke's Lutheran Church.

Anyone who knew Daisy knew one of the sweetest and most generous souls God ever created. She had a way of making everything around her be beautiful and grow, and everyone around her smile and feel joy in their hearts. She always used her many skills – sewing, cooking, gardening, and growing flowers, just to name a few – as a means of sharing God's bounty with others.

She is survived by her husband, Bobby F. Morris; a daughter, Tammy (John) Doke of Prosperity; sons, Wade (Wanda) Morris and Bobby M. Morris both of Prosperity; sisters, Peggie (Alan) Bickley, Ponzell Morris and Thelma (Larry) Morris all of Prosperity; grandchildren, Tamela (Michael) Cohen, Kevin (Brittany) Dorroh, Lori Smith and Kayla Hawkins and great-grandchildren, Anna Cohen, Waylon Cohen, Thomas Dorroh, Mary Dorroh, Madison Garner, Hannah Perkins, Bentley Hawkins and Annabelle Hawkins. Mrs. Morris was predeceased by a brother, Wayne Minick.

A private funeral service for immediate family who feel comfortable participating in an indoor worship service will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, July 25, 2020 at Mt. Pilgrim Lutheran Church by the Rev. Jason Schafer. This service will also be streamed live on the "Mount Pilgrim Lutheran Church" Facebook page, and will be saved there for later viewing. The committal service for all family and friends will be held at 10:45 am at the St. Luke's Lutheran Church Cemetery. All attendees are asked to wear something red or with a floral theme to honor Daisy's love of the color red and all flowers. Due to COVID 19, social distancing requirements will be observed and masks are encouraged. Those who desire may also use umbrellas to provide personal shade.

Memorials may be made to St. Luke's Lutheran Church, 4056 St. Luke's Church Road, Prosperity, SC 29127, the American Cancer Society, PO Box 1741, Greenwood, SC 29648 or the Newberry Hospital Financial Assistance Program.

Active pallbearers will be Benji Morris, Kendall Morris, Justin Morris, Tony Bickley, Donnie Hawkins, Jimmy Minick, and Ronnie Jones.

Honorary pallbearers will be Dr. Spencer Lovelace, Dr. Mark Salley, Dr. Rajeev Vasudeva, Dr. Steven Madden, Dr. Mark Ezekiel, the Newberry Hospital Infusion Center nurses, Irene Whitmore, Crystal Rushton and Marla Gonzalez.

To The Family, Daisy and I were classmates for 6 years. She was one of the most humble and kind people I have ever known. She was always in a good mood and could make anyone laugh; she was such a pleasure to know and be around. May all of your good memories help you through this sad time of loss and know that you will see her again one day.

I was so blessed to know Mrs Daisy. She sure had a way about her. Pure and simple love. She will always remain in my memories. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Losing someone we love is never an easy thing. I cant sit here and tell you it gets easier as the days go by. You find a new normal. That person enters your mind every day and that is ok. Think of all the good memories you had with her. I know I will be thinking about ALL of my encounters with her and how loved she made me feel. She was an Angel here on earth, she is now an Angel in heaven at peace. Love to all of you.

Miss Daisy I knew you for a very short time in my life, but it as if known your love for my whole life. Your kindness (and your family's)to me when my dear Kath died in 2008 shall never be forgotten. The taste of your Christmas Fruit cakes, a gift from your heart, will always be treasured. My Kath left this poem for me in her notes to me: It has provided much comfort and I hope it will to all Miss Daisy's family for I know she will never be forgotten as long as their are stars and a moon in the heavens.

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you, whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity.

What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.

All is well.

(Henry Scott Holland)

Our dearest Minick and Morris Families, truer words have never been spoken about an angel as Daisy who walked this earth with so much love and kindness shown toward everyone who knew and loved her. Her voice was always soothing to my soul even as a small child when we would visit our home place as Grandmother always called Stoney Hill. Even today, I feel like going home when I am there. And Daisy always welcomed me back with open arms. Oh to be just as loving as she! Now Daisy is in her eternal home with all our loved ones gone before her. May her light continue to shine and grow in each one of us. I love you all so dearly-FAMILY! Greatest blessing Heavenly Father gives us, our love & prayers, Nancy & Tim Owen

I cannot begin to express my love for Daisy. As so many have said she was the sweetest and loving person that you could know You never left her house without taking something with you I still have the last thing that she gave us, a quart of soup mix. I think I'll hold on to that to remember her. RIP Daisy. If there ever was a person that deserved to be in heaven it certainly is you Love you Daisy.
