It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our dear mom, Marion Josephine Morris (nee Fasken) on Friday, June 7, 2019 in her 93rd year at Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.
Mom graduated as a Registered Nurse from Toronto Western Hospital in 1949. She worked at Toronto Western Hospital from 1949 to 1954 before venturing over to London, England to work in nursing for 18 months. She returned to her nursing in Canada in 1955 and continued her nursing career until she was 68 years old. It was at Toronto Western Hospital where she met her future husband and our father, Jack Charles Morris whom she married in December 1956. Mom considered in addition to her nursing degree, her greatest accomplishment was having a family. We are so grateful and consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been raised by such a strong, loving, and kind mother.
Predeceased by her husband and our father Jack, dear sister Peggy (Andrew) Ker, nephew David Ker and her dear brother, William Fasken and his wife, Ellie.
Survived by her children, Margaret (Brian) Doherty, Muriel (Les) Buhr, son David, Mary Anne (Norm) Foote, and Susie (Jay) Keeler and beloved grandmother to nine and great-grandmother of two; a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews and their families. Marion was a woman of faith who loved her friends and church family at Minto United Church.
The Celebration of her Life will be held at W.J Jones & Son Funeral Home, 106 Athabasca St. E, Moose Jaw, on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 11:00 am.
