OBITUARY

Nancy Lee Morris

August 28, 1952June 22, 2019

Nancy L. (Rodgers) Morris, 66, of Surprise, AZ, passed away, Saturday, June 22, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. Nancy was born on August 28, 1952 in Bismarck, North Dakota. Nancy grew up near Turtle Lake and Washburn, North Dakota. After High School she moved to Bismarck where she met and married Gregory D. Morris on June 26th, 1976. In 1985, the family moved to Fargo, North Dakota. In 2004, she retired and moved with her husband to Arizona.

Even when employed, and with two children to raise, she would find time to help others, often by her knitting, spending 4,000 hours making caps for babies born at Sanford Medical in Fargo and creating gifts for family and friends. While in Arizona, she joined a Stitchers Club, which gave her a great deal of happiness making new friends and learning new patterns to knit shawls for cancer patients and military families. Nancy was first a wonderful loving wife and mother and later a terrific “Grandma Arizona.” Her smile came straight from a caring and generous heart. To say she will be missed, by her family is a huge understatement.

Nancy leaves her husband Greg Morris, her son Chris Morris (Shaina), St. Louis Park, MN, daughter Jenni Johnson (Dan) and her grandson, Cameron Johnson, Fridley, MN. She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna Rodgers, and her father, Leland Rodgers.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your wife, mom, and grandmother.
I worked with Greg at Pioneer and often heard stories of Nancy and attended Christmas parties where Nancy and Greg were quite the dancers.
Prayers and hugs to you as you grieve your loss.
