Our beloved mother, Virginia Harrison Weed Morris passed away quickly and peacefully on December 1, 2018. Born March 9, 1921 in Currituck, NC to Nellie Marie Kight Harrison and Dennis Bray Harrison, Sr. She was one of seven daughters and six sons. She is survived by two sisters, Elsie Weed Lorick and Blanche Leary; two sisters-in-law, Inez Hyatt and Barbara Martindale. She is also survived by her two daughters who lovingly cared for her since her stroke in 2010, Francis Haltiwanger (Wayne) and Anita Cable (John); three grandchildren, Dawn Pullen (Larry), Michael Haltiwanger (Fatma), Patrick Cable; and three great-grandchildren, Furkan Unlutaskiran, Jessica Haltiwanger, and Rachael Pullen. She had many nieces and nephews who loved her also. “Our mother was blessed to have had the love of two husbands. Marion Francis Weed to whom she was happily married for almost 57 years until his passing in 2000. At age 80, she found love again and married Francis S. Morris. They had almost ten years together. Following Frank’s passing, we jokingly told her no more husbands! She laughed! Also surviving are Frank’s daughters, Cathie Candler (Stan), Paula Jordan (Randy) and their families. She was predeceased by her step-daughter, Barbara Kleinrock. Mom had a wonderful life. She loved her large extended family. She excelled at any craft or hobby she pursued from doll making, sewing, leather tooling, basket weaving to ceramics, to list a few. She loved animals, especially exotic reptiles, the last one being her bearded dragon, Goldie. Up until the last two years, she walked a mile daily. She had a sweet, feisty nature and a tiny stature. She was special. Fly with the angels, Mama, we love you.” A celebration of our mother’s life will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at her home church, Salem United Methodist Church. Burial will follow in the churchyard. A gathering and visitation will be held from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at Dunbar Funeral Home, Dutch Fork Chapel, Irmo. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Pets Inc. 300 Orchard Drive, West Columbia, SC 20170; America’s VetDogs, 371 East Jericho Turnpike, Smithtown, NY, 11787-2976; or to the charity of one’s choice.
