Obituary of Sharon Dean Raines Morris
Sharon Dean Raines Morris went to be with her Lord and Savior on March 9, 2023 in Valdosta, GA. surrounded by her beloved family. Sharon was a devout Christian and pastor’s wife who loved Jesus, her church and her family. Sharon graduated from Weogufka High School in 1981. She was a member of Marble City Baptist Church. While a member of their youth choir she met her husband George Ferrell Morris and they were married for 40 years. Sharon’s infectious kind spirit radiated the love of Jesus into everyone she came in contact with. She will be greatly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her and leaves a void that can never be filled. Left behind to cherish her memory are her husband of 40 years, George Ferrell Morris; daughters, Hannah Grace Morris, Sarah Grace Morris; and her adopted daughter, Amy Smith. Her sister in-law, Jada Holland (Daren); her nieces, Devin Blakely (David), Dara Phillipowski (Wayne), Payton Cheeks (Jeremy), and Jordan Raines; and her brothers, Chris Raines (Lisa), and Scott Raines (Sissy).

During this time she led many support groups for abused women, mentored and taught countless students and children and served for eleven years as the Director of “A Women’s Pregnancy Center” in Madison, FL.
