Constance Christine Morris Dearing Obituary

Constance Christine Morris Dearing of Crystal Beach Texas. passed away unexpectedly on April 12, 2021 at UTMB hospital in Galveston Texas. Born in Houston on September 5, 1961, Constance Morris was the oldest child of Arthur Carlyle Morris and Nancy Schields Morris. Constance was a Houston native for most of her life, although she relocated to Seattle Washington for 9 years establishing and owning several individual material supply and insurnce businesses. Constance also had the opportunity to live as a expat for 15 years with residence in Calgary Canada, London England, Doha Qatar and Perth Australia , but always longed to return to her Texas roots. For the last 8 years Constance has shared residences between Spring and her beloved beach home in Crystal Beach, Texas. Constance ( Connie ) fully embraced her highschool years at Reagan High School in Houston. She was a Cheerleader at both Hamilton MS and Reagan HS in addition to being a "Red Coat" serving as a Bugle Lieutenant. Halftimes involved the quick change of uniforms and supporting both on and off field / court activities. She was awarded Most Outstanding Senior Girl of her school at graduation by the HISD school board. Constance was a wonderful loving mother to 4 extraordanary children. Motherhood was her passion and the love and welfare of her children her commitment. She was an active participant as coach, umpire, and trainer for sporting leagues and volunteer President of many parential musical and education associations. Constance expanded her family globally by virtually adopting individuals and families throughout her travels. Through her caring, love and generosity, numerous close and dear friends in many countries refer to her as Mom and remained an intimate part of her life. She had an abundance of energy, love, passion and generosity based on her love of God, where she attacked life with happiness and sense of adventure. Active in her church since early teen years when she was a soloist in the Houston District Nazarene youth choir, she continued as a Jr High sunday school teacher for years and served as missionary president at the Northwest Church of the Nazarene in Spring ( spending several summers building Churches in Mexico on mission crusades). Constance was born to be in the water. As a teen she became an excellent slalom water skier and spent summers as a lifeguard. With support from her husband, she learned to surf, dive and snorkel, where she longed for adventure around the world by trying to swim in every ocean. Her adventures included swimming with Dolphins, Mata Rays, Sea Turtles, Whale Sharks and unexpectely (and unapprovingly) sharks themself. Unsurprisingly once back in Texas, her initial task was to plan and help construct her home on the Beach. Her natural instinct was to capture each sunrise and sunset across the water, to continually move to the sound of the waves, to daily view and admire the abundant sea life and birds, while in parrel becoming the protector of her sand dunes and personal ownership of her beach front at Holiday Beach. She is survived by her husband of 25 years, Sidney Dearing; three sons, Corey Dearing and wife Veronica of Branson Mo. , Chris Langhans and wife Becky of Richmond Va. and Adam Langhans of The Woodlands; daughter Tiffany Dearing Burns of Houston ; 3 beloved and adored grandchildren; Haley Burns, Owen Dearing and Grady Dearing and 3 siblings; sisters Mandy Morris and Catherine Morris Thompson; brother Carlyle Morris and numerous beloved aunts, uncles and close cousins .

Dear Sid,
Darshi and I are shocked over Connie’s untimely death. Just saw a FB message and I still cannot get over it.
Connie was a sister to me and made beautiful memories in doha and Perth.
Her radiant smile, welcoming everyone with open arms and hosting get togethers at her beautiful beach house. Always full of life, never imagined anything like this would happen to her.
Connie dear, you will be terribly missed, you left a void in everyone’s heart.
Sid, please take care of yourself and kids.

Chris and I are stunned and incredibly saddened by Connie's sudden death. In 2015 we had the pleasure of meeting Sid and being graciously hosted by them at their lovely beach house. But our friendship with Connie had its beginnings in the 1980's in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. We were neighbors on a dead end street of only about 5 houses. We became fast friends, never needing to knock, just a holler through an open door to visit each other. We played cards on Fridays (and she almost always won!), took walks in Discovery Park, went out to eat at a Chinese Restaurant on Western Avenue, shared holiday meals (the apron I am wearing in the picture was a hostess gift from Connie on Easter in 1985) and watched each others' babies on occasion. Her son Adam was born the day after our daughter! She had a bright and engaging personality that could light up a whole room. She was a woman of strong faith and I am sure she now is smiling down us from a heavenly shore. Our hearts go out to Sid and all her family in this sorrowful time.
